love, love, love


 
Always the best part of any visit is painting with the artist in residence and today’s rainbow couldn’t have been a better subject to paint.

“time for action”

Looks like the time has arrived.

“perfect happiness”

Prayer flags at Tiger’s Nest, Bhutan

My way of saying thank you to Kelly who has treated us to her trip to Bhutan on her wonderful blog Compass and Camera, which she has posted every day since we all started sheltering in place, with her wish to add “a bit of light to the darkness as we get through the pandemic together.”

The title perfect happiness is explained in Kelly’s post yesterday Tiger’s Nest, Bhutan, which I recommend everyone should read and enjoy.

Thank you Kelly for lighting our darkness these past few months.

“Tick Tock!”

“Who’s there?”

“Wanda.”

“Wanda who?”

“Wanda what happened to the other 793,800 tickets.”

“hope for tomorrow’s light”

Inspired by the words of President Obama and in support of those marching for Equality, Justice and Freedom in New York and across America today, including here in Vancouver.

“Juneteenth is a time to recommit ourselves to the work that remains undone. We remember that even in the darkest hours, there’s cause to hope for tomorrow’s light.” Barack Obama, 2016.

The Supreme Court of the United States on the right side of history today…almost. It should have been 9 to 0. Their landmark decision rules that federal law prohibits employment discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

be moved too


 
After the sublime performance at the Royal Opera House today of the world premier of a new work choreographed by Wayne McGregor to Strauss’ Morgan danced by Francesca Hayward and Cesar Corrales, the company all took a knee in support of Black Lives Matter; a powerful and moving moment. Watch it on YouTube for the next 14 days and be moved too.
