Barbara Muir © 2016As a matter of fact my father would have loved
Pugwash, Nova Scotia, where we have our school
house. That part of Canada has so many things he
liked -- relatively untamed nature, people who
love art, ocean scenes and delicious food.

© W.W. Muir (date unknown)I'm thinking about my father today as I work
on finishing this painting set in Nova Scotia.
Not quite there. It's his birthday today, and on
February 28, every year I think of my father
-- of his art, his incredible photography,
his voice, his humour, his hugs, his laughter,
and the sure understanding I had as I grew older
that he loved me.
Have a remembering-people-you-love day.
