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: Hodgepodge at Nova News Now

Crossing the province again we come to Digby, on the Bay of Fundy, where John DeMings writes under Hodgepodge for the NovaNewsNow blog. John is also the editor of The Digby Courier. But he seems to enjoy the freedom of posting a lovely or compelling photograph, or of writing a reflective piece about some aspect of the local neighbourhood when he feels inspired. And this man does feel inspired pretty often. With John, you get an insider's take on Digby: its politics, its economy, its people, its beauty, its stories.
