Pinchard’s Island

On Remembrance Day, I was lucky enough to take a little family outing to the birthplace of quite a long line of my relatives, including my mom. Seven (six humans, one canine) of us met at dad’s boat in Newtown, and motored over to the island, just a few minutes away.

There was a little bit of work to do- fixing up the wharf, and winterizing the cabin, but we mostly played. Walking along the old paths, beaches, and rocks, we found ropes for our Norton’s Cove Knots project, bits of driftwood, and even a dog toy for Jack! And a mug up at the cabin, of course. A beautiful morning with some of my favourite people.

709Watershed Podcast Recording Live @ Norton’s Cove Studio today!

We’re looking for your stories about, memories of, and experiences in New-Wes-Valley (what I like to call the Greater Norton’s Cove area!). Stop in at the studio and have a chat!

The mic is ready for you to have a seat and tell your story!

The Cafe is open today so that you’ll have a place to hang out while you wait your turn to be interviewed by Darren at 709Watershed. There’s a pot of beef soup on, and you can get your fill of ‘carmel’ cheesecake too! All our drinks are ready to serve, hot and cold.

We’d love to see you here at Norton’s Cove today! Stop by, even if you don’t want to be interviewed!

Lift

I’m working on Smudge Herring No. 50 this afternoon, and to steady my arm while using a fairly fine brush, creating eyes and fins, I rest my elbow on this little brown stool. The stool was made by my Granda (Edwin Petley) Gill for me to stand on to reach the sink while brushing my teeth when I was a wee gal.

This morning, I sat in on a Zoom webinar hosted by NLOWE, featuring amazing female leaders Vianne Timmons and Cathy Bennett. They had very powerful messages about being leaders, surrounding ourselves with people who lift us up, and the ‘gift of energy’ we can give each other.

While Granda’s little stool serves as a symbol of my family lifting me up, I would like to send a shout out to a special woman who has given me an enormous gift of energy this year: Taylor Laine Curtis, the young MUN student I hired to be my Studio Assistant Extraordinaire this year, has been a major source of energy and inspiration in my creative career since she came to live in New-Wes-Valley. Thank you Taylor, truly. Know that you are appreciated and influential!
