Weekly Photo Challenge – Window

The Window of warmth has officially been lit!!! Even though the sun is still shining here on Cortes Island on the beautiful West Coast of Canada after a couple of much-needed serious rain falls that took the dust away. But in the late evenings and early mornings we have been a tad chilly – mind you, other parts of our country already have snow, but this is cold for us! This Window makes me feel so cozy and is a sight of what’s ahead for fall and winter as I spend a lot of time creating in my studio. xoxo



September is the 9th month of the year and from an esoteric numerology point of view, the number 9 relates to endings and new beginnings. I find this really interesting as September  is this in many ways for so many humans and animals. From the end of summer vacation to the start of school for students of all ages, to the end of growing season and the begin of harvest, September indeed heralds a shifting of the tides and weather changes. It always seems like a great time to start new projects, and of course it’s fashion week in New York, Milan and Paris – which means it’s time to bring out some cozy wear and bunker down for winter.

Sometimes, this time feels more like a new year than January 1st and September has me thinking about all these things every time it comes around. With the ending of harvest season in sight, I am already looking to fill my free time with many new projects – including a series of art dolls, an art event in the works (to be announced soon) – and I will even soon be starting some newly online classes and workshops. So let’s hear it for new beginnings!!! Stay tuned because I will be sharing the progress of some new work and announcing the event I hinted at in the next few weeks… And now off to enjoy the last days of summer on Hanks Beach on beautiful Cortes Island!
