Love of the country in The Month of Love

Stop a farmhouse!

I love this painting -- a watercolour that expresses the joy I feel driving through
the country anywhere I’ve been in Canada. There is a vibrancy in the light and
shadow in this piece that I like. And there’s an obvious love of the look of
farm houses.

I’ve been feeling compelled to see both the light at the end of the day, and the lake.
It gives me hope in this hard time. Each time we go for a drive Steven asks me whether
we should go west or east? I always say west because a 15 minute drive along the lake
takes us to a beautiful park, where we can see the geese, ducks, and swans that we love.

We did that today.  Getting out into nature reminds me of how much I love 
this time of year.  February is almost over -- but the love will continue.  I hope
you can get out into nature this weekend, and I look forward to a time when
we can take a drive through the countryside outside of Toronto.
