beyond the horizon

we stayed in efficiency units during our week in newfoundland (kitchen included)
 we learned to shop for easy dinner and breakfast makings in convenience stores
 the last week of April is still early for tourists
 there was fog
 no horizon
 then we saw them, the gannets at cape St. Mary's Newfoundland
and it was elating
the white out
the sense of vast space with no reference point
it's like flight

  2. We are now home after a sweet week in Newfoundland. We went so that I could see the installation of wild pure aesthetic wonder exhibition in the craft gallery, St. John's. We rented a car and toured the avalon and the bonavista penninsula.
    Newfoundland is sublime.

  9. Jennifer, the exhibition was fabulous. Nice to see the other pieces in the 'real' . I also was able to have a visit with the curator, Gloria Hickey, and meet Kelly Jane Bruton, one of the artists.

    I connected the cloth I was stitching - all white squares, one after the other, endless in 9 patches to organize for the maker, but not noticeable otherwise....to the fog white outs we were experiencing. Nothing to rest one's eye and mind on - just a lot of trusting and inner knowing going on.
