Amongst the many things that we did, we read Emily Carr's Growing Pains, an autobiography. We had a reading circle around it then, we visited the Vancouver Art Gallery to see some of her works. Emily Carr is one of Canada's most renowned artists. Unfortunately, she was in her late sixties before she got any recognition. She was an original, a visionary. Her paintings were far ahead of their time. I didn't expect to enjoy this biography as much as I did. For a real taste of Canadian spirit, landscape and art, Growing Pains is an excellent read. My intention is to have my future European guests read it before they come to visit!

Good thing I'm going back in the fall!
Have a great day!
