Spring IS Coming!

as featured on page 5 of the March 2018 issue

If you’re anything like me, winter has a way of beating you down. We romanticize memories of summer and lament the long months using snowman and crying face emojis. In true Canadian spirit, we leave our footprints in the snow, wrap our mittened hands around a Tim Horton’s cup, and increase our forearm muscles as we tackle the ice on our cars each morning. And, on the days when the mercury dips so low our furnaces and wood stoves can’t keep up, we sit in our   offices donning toques, scarves, and wool sweaters, repeating the life-giving mantra: this too shall pass.

Winter is not glamourous. And sometimes, it’s all I can do to resist the tempting call of hibernation. Happily, I’ve been kept warm by the work of this issue: the botanical paintings of Sharon Barr, the heated romance of Ken and Beth, the cozy reflections on writing by Susan Siddeley… what a gift!

As so, no matter the intensity or brutality of winter, spring does come. Eventually. And for you and I, it begins within these pages.
