Focus on Joy and Love

The storm was crazy, I never in my life heard wind like Fiona before. Fiona felt like a monster trying to get you and it lasted endless hours. At 2 in the morning we all woke up and sat in the living room. New home, new place and it was frightening. Power went out and trees came down and after 13 hours or more the storm slowly stopped. Fiona scared me to the core. 

Autumn weather has settled all around us now. The clean-up around our town is almost complete. The evidence of Fiona coming through the area slowly diminishing. 

The sun rises beautifully, gold hues touch all the leaves and burnt orange and yellow surrounds us. The fields softly touched by morning fog disappear by the warmth of the sun. 

Being in a new place feels vulnerable, I still feel emotional, it’s only been one month. The beauty of my surroundings helps my emotions and offers me comfort and joy. The beauty of PEI embraces me and offers love. 

I don’t know how long this adventure will last but I know that I am going to live in the moment and appreciate everything around me. I am going to look toward the brightness of the sun and not the shadows. Focus on joy and love. 

I have set up an art area and slowly I will set up my books as well. I forced my self to sit down and make some art but I just sat there not knowing where to start. Feeling lost a bit so I’m just going to take in my surroundings and breathe a bit before creating anything. It takes time…
