I dream of travelling always. To me travel is always romantic. Paris, France,Florence, Italy, New York City, New York, The Netherlands, California,
London, England -- you name it. Steven and I were playing a guessing game
with each other yesterday guessing where we would really like to go, and
all of these places came up. But the place I feel the most relaxed in, where
my creative self flourishes is right here at home. I love this place, this
neighbourhood, this community, and this city. That in no way takes away from
my urge to travel, and the delight I feel in learning about new places.
I've been working on this painting of the field behind the school across the
street from us here in Toronto for a while. I love the colour, how it is abstract
and yet also true. It's very close to being finished. A brave, bold move for me is
not having a cloud in the sky. And that was part of the point of the painting.
We get these spectacular blue sky days here, and they definitely bring on
a feeling of supreme happiness. I totally love clouds. They lift my heart,
and I love this kind of day too.
Have a loving your neighbourhood day.
