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. 

"A picture is a work of art, not because it is 'modern,' nor because it is 'ancient,' but because it is a sincere expression of human feeling."

~ John F. Carlson

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.

"The heart of man is very much like the sea, it has its storms, it has its tides and in its depths it has its pearls too" ~ Vincent Van Gogh

Wiggle, Jiggle, and Giggle Time. Turn it up, and LET’S DANCE!

Love ya. Thank you for being here.

Are you wondering where the sharks are? 

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!”

Good Sunday afternoon!

Sad to hear you’re letting this blog go soon. Although A Bunch of Good Things is similar, they’re different and I enjoy both.
What a lovely story, this gentleman really does have the magic of life. And Love Train! never gets old. Such a feel good song.

Thanks for another great weekend read and listen.

Thanks again for you interesting blog, enjoyed the “Love Train” & the Van Gogh presentation. Will miss your Saturday morning blog, but I have signed up for “A Bunch of Good Things”.

So, so sorry you will be ending this Saturday morning blog but I subscribe to your “A Bunch of Good Things” newsletter. The Love Train Feat – awesome! Yo-Yo Ma – such joy on his face! Such joy on all the faces! And The Magic of Life – what a wonderful outlook for life.

Missed the interactive Van Gogn display when it was in town, but friends still describe it as one of the best exhibits they have seen. Thank you for the videos as I allowed me to briefly see the exhibit.
