Feelings + Blessings Surround Us + The Last Thing I Need
Good Morning from Warren Grove, Prince Edward Island
I hope you had a lovely week, and thank you for joining me today.

My wife Shirley, our daughter Emily and I went to the van Gogh immersive art exhibit a few months ago while in Halifax. We thoroughly enjoyed it, and the good news is it is now on Prince Edward Island at the Delta Hotel and P.E.I. Convention Centre and runs until Sept. 5.
If you are a van Gogh art lover, I highly recommend taking it in. The self-portraits and portraits of others blew me away.
The exhibit uses large-scale projections, music and special effects, creating a new way to interact with 300 of Van Gogh's paintings.
Below are a few photos and a video I took with my phone.
Recognising The Magic And Blessings That Surrounds Us Every Single Day
As a child, there was no doubt in your mind that magic existed. You immersed yourself in a world of wonder and unique possibilities. But as adults, we get caught up in solving problems and simply surviving from one moment to the next while forgetting about the magic of life.
Miracles are always happening, especially in all those small things we so easily overlook. Recognise the magic and blessings that surround you every single day.
The best kind of movie is the one that makes you laugh and cry. Enjoy.

Love ya. Thank you for being here.
Have a wonderful weekend.
My wife Shirley and I created Prince Edward Island Preserve Company and Gardens of Hope. This spring, we sold our company to Adam and Marsha Doiron. I will end my writing on this blog soon. However, I started a newsletter called A Bunch of Good Things—a place for positivity and encouragement.
I hope you will sign up here.
With love from Prince Edward Island.

ps. Your Morning Smile
I recently went to my 30th class reunion from nursery school.
I didn't want to go because I've put on maybe 90 or 100 pounds since then.
I saw an ad for burial plots, and I thought: “That’s the last thing I need!”
