This is Culture

arts and writingI was lucky enough to attend not one, but two cultural events this weekend:  The Etsy Made in Canada craft fair and Kingston WritersFest.

My children and I admired the work of Etsy sellers on Saturday.  From artwork to jewellery to stitched items, each table held impressive talent and creativity.

This morning, my sister and I listened as Camilla Gibb read from her new memoir, “This is Happy” and spoke eloquently about her life to Merilyn Simonds.  I was moved by her reading, and awed by her willingness to share what so many seldom talk about.

It was a truly inspiring weekend.
