On Sunday Justin and I went to the Musee des Beaux-Arts in Quebec City. This exhibit by Jean-Paul Riopelle touched me deeply. The series extended over three rooms and were the paintings the artist poured out of his heart after the death of his love. Especially with it being Mother's Day, I was moved by the process of grieving reflected in the extraordinary and beautiful works of Riopelle. What a blessing.
After ages of working though The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, I finally finished it! For just a wee book, it took me a long time. I wasn't super enjoying it, but then it finally picked up and wow... pretty awesome. One more book read! YAY! I think one is even on one of my lists... oh, I hope so!
This Saturday there was a Halifax sort of open house called Open City where there were all sorts of events. Here is my friend Emily on the right doing hoolahooping. We also had $10 lobster poutine, free cupcakes and lemonade and got to try a wedding cake and so much more. It was tiring but awesome!
