ABOVE THE DEPTHS Janice Feist While visiting a dear friend at a cabin on Helve Lake, Ontario, I was given the opportunity to paddle in a canoe; something I hadn’t done in a very long time. I recall my joy as I quietly dipped my paddle to maneuver around rocks and logs submerged beneath the lily pad speckled surface of quiet water, peering into the water and embracing the richness of colour around me. Time spent without outside influence and constant chatter is a gift that I rarely accept. It was glorious time spent alone in nature’s embrace. This painting now resonates with me even more, considering the current health risk of Covid-19. We are a society that loves to be together, to share closely. It is a struggle to learn to do things on our own for the protection of ourselves and others, however, we have the ability to do so. We can flourish with space between us and still be connected, to rediscover our resourcefulness and compassion. By our selfless dedication to living safely we will rise above the depths.
