This is a verse from one of my all time favourite songs by the amazing Joni Mitchell (who happened to grow up only 3 hours from my hometown in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan). The song is called A Case of You , it is beautifully written and Joni delivers it so well with her unique voice and style. I have added the file below and I recommend you take a listen. (This is my favourite verse from the song and holds one of my favourite quotes)

Oh I am a lonely painter

I live in a box of paints

I am frightened by the devil

And I’m drawn to those one that ain’t afraid 

I remember that time you told me, you said,

“Love is touching souls,”

Surely you touched mine

Cause’ part of you pours out of me

In these lines from time to time

A Case of You

Lately we have been having very strange weather here in Saskatchewan (we always have weird weather around here but this year has been especially odd). We had temps of up to +19 (celsius) in March and then in April we got over a foot of snow in a few hours and the next day it was +2! Very weird but makes for some great pictures! (global warming is happening people!)

Woke up yesterday and was punched square in the face by Spring. Yay! I decided to go out and get some fresh air and take a drive to the country and around the city park to see what kind of shots I could get. I wasn’t disappointed. I love spring, everything is vibrating with new life ready to spring out at any moment. Yes, it’s sloppy and muddy and brown but still oddly beautiful. Spring is the stepping stone to the summer we anticipate! Here are some of the photos…

I love Saskatchewan it is my home. We may not have epic mountains, or wave filled oceans. Yes, it gets frigidly cold and the summers are short, hot and sweet. I find the beauty of this place is in its simplicities. You can see for miles on ground and in the sky. “Out here it is so open and so free and that’s what beauty is for me.” Here is a poem dedicated to this amazing province that I live and a few pictures.

The melting snow of spring,
Brings the birds back to sing.
Water mixes into mud,
and the trees begin to bud.

The humid nights hot on our skin,
the winter was a loss but summer a win.
Flowers and trees full and lush,
the herendous wind creates waves that crush.

The fall inspires, and makes the air clear,
We all know winter is almost here.
Leaves are raked and stratigectly piled,
We hope and pray that winter will be mild.

Sparkling hoar frost lines the trees,
counting the days till we see the leaves.
Winter is hard and very pain-staking,
but the beauty of it is really breath-taking.
