Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there!
We took this photo with mom a few years ago,
at Old Orchard Beach, in Maine (USA).
Mother's day is never the same
once your mom is gone.
But thankfully, my 19 year old son reminds me
that the good memories are precious
and that there is still life to be lived.
For the past years, he gives me a card
and writes me a beautiful letter
and makes the day so much better.ok, first let me say
that I finish my job this Tuesday,
and i am as giddy as a schoolgirl at a Justin Bieber concert.
I am finally, slowly, starting to see
the light at the end of the tunnel.
I can't wait to catch up with all of you out there.
It has been a difficult winter -
as you can see from the photos...
BUT - spring is on the way,
the days are getting longer
and the sun, warmer.
And my job - closer to being done!
The ice is gone from the bay...
and although there are still patches of snow here & there,
and crooked picnic tables
and broken branches...
the water is still,
and spring is here
and summer is on the way!
Went for a walk tonight and the water was like a mirror.
This is our version of the Brooklyn Bridge...
Only one lane wide, no sidewalk, and you cross at your own risk. :)
and look at the lovely reflection.
I even got in a bit of art lately....with my crayola crayons.i love colouring on a larger format
with the crayolas...
kinda go wild with the scribbling.
You just have to smell the Crayolas
and you feel like a kid again.
i'm done with this "acting like an adult" thing.
It's fucking boring. :)
How much fun are these scribbles?
You know you want to.
I started this today...
Acrylic on canvas.
It's in the early stages, but i like it so far,
and look forward to seeing it develop.
She always celebrated Acadian day
on August 15th with friends & family
at The Pays de la Sagouine.
Mom loved people, loved music
and especially loved life.
So i'm painting this in her honour.
To remind myself that there is always
life to love.
(even if it's not always easy)
