Setting the sails

Yesterday my friend Jenny Wu asked me if I could do my life over, would I choose this one again. A hard question to answer. It’s a yes and no answer. The question came after I told her I talked a lot at the wedding with my ex-husband’s brother and sister. We talked about his quirks and oddities, and even his good qualities. We shared some thoughts and laughs about the past.

So would I want to change my life? Not as it is now. If I could have the same parents, the same family and opportunities being who I am now, knowing what I have learned in this life, then yes, it would be good. I probably would make different choices so it would then be a different life. It may have been difficult to get here this lifetime, but I like where I am. So I’ll stay here for now.


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.
