Faces and Place Between Cape Breton and Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia

“I don’t know if I continue, even today, always liking myself. But what I learned to do many years ago was to forgive myself. It is very important for every human being to forgive herself or himself because if you live, you will make mistakes- it is inevitable. But once you do and you see the mistake, then you forgive yourself and say, ‘well, if I’d known better I’d have done better,’ that’s all. So you say to people who you think you may have injured, ‘I’m sorry,’ and then you say to yourself, ‘I’m sorry.’ If we all hold on to the mistake, we can’t see our own glory in the mirror because we have the mistake between our faces and the mirror; we can’t see what we’re capable of being. You can ask forgiveness of others, but in the end the real forgiveness is in one’s own self. I think that young men and women are so caught by the way they see themselves. Now mind you. When a larger society sees them as unattractive, as threats, as too black or too white or too poor or too fat or too thin or too sexual or too asexual, that’s rough. But you can overcome that. The real difficulty is to overcome how you think about yourself. If we don’t have that we never grow, we never learn, and sure as hell we should never teach.”

Maya Angelou quotes (American Poet, b.1928)


Today young Logan graduated from kindergarden! Hey Logan! Logan wants to be a police officer when he grows up.


“Are we to paint what’s on the face, what’s inside the face, or what’s behind it?”

Pablo Picasso quotes (Spanish Artist and Painter. 1881-1973)


“A man’s face is his autobiography. A woman’s face is her work of fiction.”

Oscar Wilde quotes (Irish Poet, Novelist, Dramatist and Critic, 1854-1900)

faces of the day

“We all have a face that we hide away forever,

And we take them out and show ourselves when everyone has gone.

Some are satin, some are steel, some are silk and some are leather.

They’re the faces of the stranger and we love to try them on.”

Billy Joel quotes (American Pianist, Singer and Song Writer, b.1949)


These two love bird will have been married three year on June 16th. They were touring Nova Scotia for their third honeymoon.


“Some people, no matter how old they get, never lose their beauty – they merely move it from their faces into their hearts.”

Martin Buxbaum quotes

There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.  ~Winston Churchill


“The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land.”

G. K. Chesterton quotes (English born Gabonese Critic, Essayist, Novelist and Poet, 1874-1936)



I sat Bo on a park bench and hide inside the van to watch people’s reactions….So many people just walked by and didn’t ever see him. Some, people took a wide circle around him, even though he was looking the other direction. It was too funny, i was in the van laughing my head off, perhaps I’m spending too much time on my own.
