Come enjoy Shari’s painting!
It seemed like a perfect painting day. A quiet morning in Pointe Claire Village. Some freshly fallen snow. A view I’ve sketched many times, AND a lucky parking spot just behind a bus stop, which pretty much guarantees that no one can park in front of me. WRONG. It turns out that the no parking zone in front of me is the busiest parking spot in the village. The first offender was a Purolator truck making multiple drop offs. Then it was a sidewalk-clearing plow that ironically got stuck in the snow. After that it was an 18-wheeler reversing into a grocery store parking lot. And then a man dropping off a gift bag to someone in a café. The list is long.
Each of these things might seem like a minor distraction on a warm day, but when you’re painting in the car in winter, time is of the…

I was talking to my niece today and I thought of something. I know i have alluded to this subject in other posts, but I feel its worth mentioning again. I asked my niece what she had been up to today and she said she was writing a letter! Yes, my jaw may have dropped, for today that seems like such a lost art. I told her how wonderful that was, and how its rare to hear of today and she agreed.
I remember the joy of running to the mailbox when I was younger waiting for a letter from a pen pal that I had. Then I remember the eagerness of waiting for letters from friends when we had to move. They were special. Just like the letters from my siblings when they went to college and I was still at home. Letters from my parents meant so much…

Please – Do Not Miss This Beautifully Romantic – Love Poem!
Just like this wood floor still longs to be a tree…
I still long to be your wife
My sides feel like they’re bruised
Today I realized the sun is a liar
It no longer brings your lips on my neck
And your hand on my hip
I spent the week with your finger picking in my ear
And crying tears that should be dry
I keep reading your words over and over looking for new ones that will never come
I no longer know the sound of your voice and I’ll never hear I love you again
This pocket of coin you earned I would throw in the sky to hear you say it
The woman you called your proverbs 31 is tainted and broken and wild searching
Searching for something anything to kill the pain
Picking scabs so they never heal
