About

Hi. I am Dixie. Welcome to my blog!

I grew up in Nova Scotia so it's no surprise that I love the woods and the sea and all the creatures within. I know that environment made me a naturalists and an artist by heart as well as by example.

Oftentimes I find myself daydreaming about the sea, and I fondly remember idyllic days spent skimming over the waves with occasional stops to roam around the islands that studded its surface. Those were definitely days of growth and discovery.  The sea's watermark still defines me and I can sometimes smell, or fancy I can smell the salt sea breeze; I miss it, but times and circumstances do change.

Throughout the years, I've lived in several towns and cities in Canada, including Inuvik, NWT Canada which is high above the Arctic circle. The Arctic is a place of beauty and mystery. There when spring finally arrives, it rises almost instantaneously from the evaporating snow. You watch and listen and  appreciate the gift.  

These days I live in the "south" (Ontario) and I love the diversity and beauty of the seasons. And the good news is that I am not landlocked. Nearby, the St. Lawrence River glides by without my help.
In my element.





I'm a later comer to blogging ( April 24, 2013) and since I didn't know the rules, you will find a variety of posts about things that I love and that interest me. Because of this blog, I've met so many wonderful people and and I am thankful for each and everyone. It's fun to interact and to get to know people from all over the world.

If you do decide to follow my blog via a feed, etc., please let me know so that I can follow you back.




Here's a few pics from Nova Scotia.

Thank you so much for visiting.

Wishing you the very best...

Dixie

  1. We are so alike when I read your profile. Writing, reading, bird watching, walks in the woods, and knitting. I love the sea, but have little exposure. I loved the book, Gifts From the Sea, and would LOVE to do what Anne Morrow Lindbergh did -- stay in a cabin on the ocean -- to refresh. You don't need much, really. We all have to find a way to do that, if only for an hour. :)

  2. O, that's neat to have so much in common. I do love your blog with all the great pics of the birds, too!

    You are quite right the sea shore is one of the very best places to recharge, or, barring that, a hour or so along a river, although not quite as nice, will do nicely, too!
