In the Geographic Center of Canada


You can see today's steady rain moving in behind the Inukshuk marking the geographic center of Canada. I had one of those spiritual moments that you can only have standing at the top of a hill looking out over a vast and beautiful natural landscape with the wind in your hair. That kind of feeling of wonder at the beauty and power of the natural world. I have the heart of an artist, even if I lack the coordination and spatial sense to put what I see onto paper. It can be terribly frustrating, but I'm grateful for the gifts I have and the rare moments when I manage to capture some semblence of the things I want to put to paper and that which I can't put to paper... I can still paint on the pages of my heart. Fortunately, my camera is a forgiving tool and allows me to share what I see much better than my paintbrush and pastels can.... So here it is... an almost perfect moment in my life.... the only thing that was missing was Gabe who I would have loved to share that view with... well... umm.. here you go... wish you were there :P
