Love in bloom

I went to Peggy’s Cove for an afternoon this week and didn’t have a camera. I felt like I wasn’t really there. I went to Chester for an afternoon. Was I really there without my camera? I went to Cape Breton overnight this week and didn’t have a camera. Again, was I really there? How strange to be in a fascinating place and not to have a camera. Yes, I was in all these places and did enjoy being there. I do have vivid images from them. Not only that, I’ve been to each of these places before and have lots of photos. I just like to capture, hold the moments.

These explorations around Nova Scotia happened because my 81 year old cousin was visiting for a week with her 81 year old boyfriend. They were very sweet together, tender, loving, appreciative. All that one could want at any age. I enjoyed their company and enjoyed seeing their pleasure in being with each other. Love is alive and well at any age. It can be.

Even in England (here in a park in Exeter):


About leyaevelyn

About thirty years ago, I moved from New York City to rural Nova Scotia. For an artist, it is a good place to live. Spacious and quiet. Despite the beautiful scenery and frequently grey skies, my abstract paintings focus on color, its expressive qualities and how it creates form and space.
