"Even when they're confronted by the daunting assignment of tackling a work of such depth - both in plot and characterization - the three member cast never wavers. Such poise and confidence are rare commodities even in professional circles, much less amateur ranks."
Based on the novella 1919: The Love Letters of George and Adelaide, Dancing in Poppies examines the physical, emotional and spiritual damage inflicted by war.
Geoff and I saw the play opening night last Friday, January 23rd and his review was in The Ingersoll Times yesterday, January 28th.

I photographed this Cardinal near our feeder on a stormy afternoon in December 2007. Most people who look at this photo think it would make a good cover for a Stephen King novel......one with a giant menacing bird theme......poor little guy.
For more information about the Cardinal and to see the very distinct differences between the males and females, visit the Cornell Lab of Ornithology website.

The white sculpture is the original plaster pattern used to cast the bronze sculpture at the Canadian Embassy in Washington, D.C. The prominent central figure wearing the big hat is a shaman, the Haida chief Kilstlaai. As a symbol of authority he holds a speaker's staff; on the top of the staff is Killer Whale.
The Spirit of Haida Gwaii features Raven and Eagle, the two principal Haida lineages that are coequal and represent two halves of a whole. The sculpture encompasses mythical creatures, animals, men and women, who together symbolize not just one culture but the entire family of living beings. The canoe is filled to overflowing with creatures who bite and claw one another as they doggedly paddle along.
The photo is a scan of a 35mm photo I took in 1999.
There's a man being towed around by two young girls in fancy dresses in this Newfoundland and Labrador Tourism Ad - many a moon ago I used to babysit him and his sister! How old does that make me?!
You can't possibly look at this video without realizing why I get so homesick sometimes.

The first photo is quite simply a view from the shoreline through the water (Atlantic Ocean) to the rocks just below the surface.
Can you see the woman sitting on the bench? And yes, that's the Atlantic in the background.
Visit Watery Wednesday for more liquid shots.
Thanks again to ABC Wednesday - Round 3. Look out for Round 4!

It was a snow-filled sky as I arrived home from work today. In the photo below the trees and sky make a sneaky appearance in the bottom right corner - reflected in the window of a vehicle
