With an unexpected day off from school, the kids seemed more than happy to stay inside in front of their electronic device of choice for as long as I would allow. But I know from experience that leaving a child to watch TV or to play on their iPod for an extended period of time is a lot like a wind-up toy. When you stop turning the crank and let the toy go… watch out for the crazy to be unleashed!
In autumn, the rural road along Nova Scotia's Highway 2 is lined with scenes of quaint farm houses, river views, and blueberry fields as red as hot coals.
My sister and I made our way along this road one chilly October day, excited to view the newest work of local artist Joy Laking at her Fall Exhibition.
Joy Laking has been capturing the heart and soul of Nova Scotia in her paintings for over forty years. A visit to her gallery near Bass River leaves one feeling warm, welcomed, and inspired.
