A Thought for Nova Scotia
I do have enough unused material in my archives to put together a ‘new’ post. This week however my heart is just not into it. This week, like everyone else in Canada my heart is hurting for Nova Scotia.
If you’ve followed this space for a while you know that outside of my love for my home province of Québec, the next best place where I feel most at peace in this big beautiful country that I’m so fortunate to call home is the province of Nova Scotia.
Having dear old friends who live there gives us the perfect excuse to visit frequently and over the years on this blog I’ve posted many images of the beauty to be found there.
Perhaps you’ve visited yourself? Or spoken to someone who has?
If so you’ll find yourself nodding in agreement as I mention picturesque fishing villages,
beautiful rolling hills and sleepy small towns,
the rich farmlands of the Annapolis valley, the remarkable tides of the Fundy coast,
or the majestic mountains of the Cape Breton Highlands.
And despite being blessed with so much undeniable natural beauty the thing that almost every visitor mentions first upon returning home from a visit to Nova Scotia is: the people.
Simply put, Nova Scotia is home to some of the most welcoming, warm, kind, and unpretentiously good people you could ever hope to meet.
This is what makes the 22 lives lost there this past weekend following the murderous rampage of a deranged gunman so hard to come to terms with.
Investigators are still combing through 16 different crime scenes including at least 5 burned out buildings across a 60 km swath of the province, as they try to piece together the chain of events and figure out what happened.
As if a global pandemic wasn’t enough.
And for me the worst thought is knowing that if it can happen in quiet, peaceful Nova Scotia, it truly can happen anywhere. And that my friends is not a thought that I can deal with right now.
Of course we all know that despite the incredibly trying times the world is going through, there is still so much beauty out there. Sometimes it’s just not as easy to see it.
Here’s some of that beauty from my visits to Nova Scotia.
Please friends, drop your links in the comments below and share some beauty of your own.
I’ll be back with a more positive doors post next week. In the meantime as always, thanks for looking 🙂
