In May 2011, after four years of life on McNutt's Island, we moved to Montreal. This blog remains, though, as a (sort of) daily record of our time on the island, and a winding path for anyone who would like to meander about among its magical places. For additional perspectives and insights I recommend Greg's book, Island Year: Finding Nova Scotia (2010), and my Bowl of Light (2012). I'll continue to post once in a while. If you do want to read this blog, one option would be to begin at the beginning of it (which is, as we all know, in blog-world, at the end), and read forward, concluding with the most recent entry. It's a journal, really, so it does makes more sense if you read it that way. But, you know, read it any way you like.

Reading locally: Alice In Paris Loves Art and Tea

I'm a big fan of Shelagh Duffett's Alice in Paris Loves Art and Tea. What a spirit! First of all, her photographs are gorgeous, every one. What an eye she has. Then, she lives in the great Nova Scotia city of Halifax. I think you really need a guide like Shelagh to take you around there, down the little lanes and alleyways, to the library, to the parks and the cafes and shops, and special events like the Queen's Birthday that you might not get to, otherwise. She is adventurous and she is filled with good cheer, and you will be, too, just from, as she says, popping by.
