The Distance Between

The distance between summer and winter is the glorious colours of fall. The leaves on Mayne Island make for very subdued frocks compared to other parts of the world. Still we are not left out.

The maple trees are the biggest and brightest dancing and spinning before the winds and rains undress them.

Thank you to everyone who has purchased my redbubble calendars this week. You know who you are and I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I did creating them. For those that are still interested, take your time, there is no rush yet. It is still a couple of weeks before redbubble sends me a notice to say they can’t be sure that a delivery will get to its destination before Christmas.

Speaking of redbubble, they just had a major re-design. Here is a link with a thumbnail of my All-Time-Popular images shown together . Very cool.


Sprout question: What creative seed are you planting so it will sprout for spring?

  1. Terrill,

    Good morning! Beautiful photographs! Mother nature does her best to dress up before her long night winters sleep! Colorful and vibrant, and sometimes shocking… but always welcome to my eyes.

    What seeds am I planting for spring growth? There are always new ways to approach my art, so lesson, visits to museums, artist dates with music, poetry, all the stir the imagination.

    I am Love, Jeff

  2. Terrill – Ooh la la, very pretty colors, indeed. My favorite photograph is the very last one.

    I’m heading out the door for HolEssence shortly so I’ll come back and follow the link to your All-Time-Popular images corraled into one place. I want to savor them with a cuppa tea.

    Sprout question: What creative seed are you planting so it will sprout for spring?

    Well… back in June I surveyed the readers of Speaking from the Heart regarding what they would like to read/learn more about “Alphabetically Speaking” come Nov/Dec. I’ve been busily working behind the scenes to get that “class” ready to launch on November 2nd. But that’s not spring.

    Len and I have planted seeds that come April will bloom into a bicycle ride through wine country in the Napa and Sonoma Valleys of California. Whoohoo!

    • Laurie you are very right November is not spring in this part of the world anyway. However, I am happy to hear you are going to have another “class” starting up.

      Your seeds for spring do sound like a most inspiring plan. Wow! How many miles are you planning to ride? Will you do it all at once or go back a few times and do it in sections over the summer and next fall? No need to answer. I am just thinking about how I can make myself small enough to ride unnoticed on the handlebars and it is always good to know when I should be packed and ready to go… unnoticed of course;)

  3. Beautiful photos. I love Autumn/Fall colours. Autumn & Spring the months between – I like that idea – are my favourites. There seems to be potential & change that brings excitement in those seasons.

    The creative seed I’m planting in the spring?……….I think it has something to do with me focusing more & more on my intuition & the affects of creativity on my health. Once again, you’ve got me thinking & inspired. Thanks!

  4. Well, fall on Mayne Island is as beautiful as any other spot graced with autumnal foliage. As I’ve said many times it’s the most glorious season for all sorts of reasons. But alas it’s too fleeting.

    The creative seed I’d like to plant is resilience. It’s a quality that needs it’s own nurturing.
