lunenburg still life with lobster sign, vintage car & coke machine - sigh / from the other side of the harbour / more red building love / sunshiny explorations / interpretive signage / from Pelham Street / brightly coloured wooden buildings / potential ocean adventures - be still my heart / architectural details abound / more of last Saturday's incredible sky meets sea / in love !!

When you take the step towards your dreams you will be met with fears because you have never traveled this way before. As you go, you will discover that you had nothing to fear. Through overcoming your fears you give those that follow you hope that if they pursue their dreams, they will achieve their dreams. E'yen A. Gardner

I've been fortunate to have travelled lots in my life. New York City many times, perhaps a dozen and Paris 3x. I can vividly remember the feelings that would wash over me as soon as I arrived in those exciting, stimulating & perfect-to-walk-around in cities. Seriously ... I feel the same way about you - lovely Lunenburg, you are a treasure I am so thrilled to be exploring & discovering.  And I live here ! I'm not just visiting. Phew ! I can take a few breaths & relax into everything you have to offer.

my crazy heart

more photo's from my first of many walks to Cove Rd. & back again & more of that spectacular oh my sky & sea ;-)

You know that crazy heart of yours? The one with lightning crackling and moonlight shining through it. The one you’ve been told not to trust because it often led you off the beaten path. The one so many have misunderstood your entire life. Trust it. Feed it. Grow it. It’s your greatest treasure and will point the way to your highest destiny. It is the voice of your soul. Jacob Nordby

Finally finished exciting & fun project No.1 and now after this morning's walk out & about this incredible place I'll begin project No.2. I am so very grateful for this life I'm living ... honestly I'm pinching myself a billion, zillion times a day because I just can't believe I'm actually living my wildest dreams.

My crazy heart is so full of contentment, anticipation & excitement I am breathless with joy.

hey Lunenburg

an early morning walk along the ocean to the other side of the harbour - Lunenburg you are so beautiful I can barely stand it

I give you this to take with you. 
Nothing remains as it was. 
If you know this, you can begin again, 
with pure joy in the uprooting. 
Judith Minty Letters to My Daugters

I bet you've been worrying about me, wondering where I've been. Why I've been so quiet here at this blog of mine. Every little thing is fine ... better than fine actually. I have lots of fun work projects that eat up most of the hours in my days. Thursday morning walks to the Farmers Market, my own daily jaunts out and about exploring with my camera, making big pots of soup & Sunday dinners on Monday afternoons for my visiting Prince & his best pal Samuel. I've been writing out Christmas cards for friends all over - late I realize but better late than not at all applies here - I'm sure of it.

This new place, this move has been so good for my spirit.  I'm giddy & smitten, I'm madly in love with my new home.
