Back Home After Creating Fabulous Memories


in Kagawong on Manitoulin Island


The Festival's theme this year was Walking
which struck me as more than a coincidence
considering Judy has been healing from her
broken leg since the late Spring.


Judy, Margi and Val beneath the trees where everything began.
The white wrapped sections represent Judy's steps
and the colourful flags in between show the length of her stride.


We laid it beside a river
where salmon were running
....just perfect....


It skirted a mighty rock....


and climbed a hill.
It looked beautiful
and it rained overnight
which made it even more beautiful
for Judy's talk the next morning.


Fungus grew on trees along the pathway


Fungus with delicate underbellies.


And we found evidence that fairies live in this magical place too.


Kagawong means "mists rising from falling water" in the Ojibwe language.
Val, Margi and I were so pleased to be there
to help Judy install and just be there for her.

  3. A fine representation of Judy's pathway. I really like both. Hers and yours.

    Fungi....how does it DO that? I wonder about so many things Mother Nature creates.
