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.

Stone walls waking up

The island's old stone walls are beginning to wake up. Today the sun is warming them and the moss is tickling their skin.
Hidden inside the walls the snakes slowly stretch, and open only one eye for now. It's too early yet for them. They need a bit more of a snooze -- a couple more weeks, maybe.
