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.

shadows and sun

The leaves of the oak tree cast dancing shadows against the house.It's performance art, an ensemble convergence of wind, sun, tree and old clapboard.
A brief afternoon event, unscheduled and unannounced.
You just had to happen to be passing by if you wanted to catch it.

Glad you were passing by - I love dappled shade.

Your house is the PRETTIEST shade of blue.

I never tire of the blue hue of your house, and with dappled sun and flowers around it, even more beautiful.

What a beautiful house and the colours are perfect. What a blessed spot. And that blue...what dreams are made of.
