…of snow & buried treasure…


…”Local mountains confident snow shortage just a temporary problem”…”Lost Group of Seven art collection finds new home at Vancouver Art Gallery”…

It seems the temperature inversions responsible for Vancouver’s recent foggy days are to blame for the apparent lack of snow on the local mountains of Grouse, Cypress & Mt. Seymour.
The good news for ski & snowboard enthusiasts is that this weather phenomenon is “expected to dissipate later in the week.”

Cheers to let it snow! let it snow! let it snow!….(only at higher elevations, pray the commuters & city road crews!)…

Fun to note that 10 works by Canadian famed ‘Group of Seven’ founding artist-J.E.H. MacDonald have made their way to the Vancouver Art Gallery after being “rediscovered & donated.”

Created between 1910-1922, these works were apparently wrapped & buried in the artist’s backyard for safekeeping and not discovered until 1974 when the municipality of Thornhill took over ownership of the home.

An artfully creative tale for sure!…

What is it that you treasure?? Is it things or experiences that give you pleasure??…

I am sure the answers to that question can be as varied as we as people are different and accustomed and influenced by our place and time.

Cheers to a treasure filled day & remember—-

No matter how grouchy you’re feeling,
You’ll find the smile more or less healing.
It grows in a wreath
All around the front teeth—
Thus preserving the face from congealing.
