I have interpreted this week’s Photo Challenge: Awakening the best way I know how by sharing the joy of spending time in the studio last weekend with my beautiful, creative granddaughter who shows us all so perfectly how a box of paints, a few brushes, paper and a little water can awaken the artist in all of us.
Joining Canadians from across the country in the studio today wearing JerseysforHumboldt in support of all those families and friends who lost loved ones from the Humboldt Broncos in last week’s tragic accident. With deepest sympathy and heartfelt condolences to them all.
We are all grieving with Humboldt Saskatchewan tonight.

Happy Easter Weekend and Happy Passover
“For this week’s photo challenge, explore the vibrant, hopeful colors of your favorite sunrise or sunset.”

“What’s your favourite place near or far,” we are asked for this week’s Photo Challenge.
Not surprisingly here are two of mine.

Thank you and congratulations to Team Canada and to all the athletes of the Pyeongchang Paralympic Games for inspiring us this week, and congratulations to Mark Arendz
