I like to to make things, especially with flowers. I live in the sunny paradise that is Southern Ontario, where flowers grow in great profusion. My preference is to design using locally grown blooms, combining them with foliage and flowers that I forage from my garden. The result is naturally elegant floral design, with just a touch of wildness.
“You can’t be a hero and a poet.” I read it in a book once, and I am still discovering what it means. Miranda Hart makes me laugh my face off. She is one of the best writers and comediennes of our time and I quote her overmuch. My husband is wonderful. He also makes me laugh my face off, and has broadened the horizons of my life in so many ways (Marvel Comics and The Office are just two examples). I love him.
I love to write. Writing makes my heart soar. You will find some poetry in the archives of this blog, and right now I am working on an adventure novel.
Art needs no justification. “Leave her alone”, said Jesus. “Why are you bothering her? She has done a beautiful thing to me.” (Mark 14:6 and thanks to Calvin Seerveld)
