A week on this island off the coast of BC, and I feel like I’ve been hit with a ton of inspiration bricks. I want to write again. I WANT TO WRITE AGAIN! As my wee little miss has her afternoon nap, I find my creative forces have much work to do. I’m now on Day 6 of my 100 Happy Days Challenge, starting the day I arrived here on Mayne Island. Here are my Facebook posts capturing little moments of my first days here.

 

Day 1

Day 1 of 100 happy days. A friendly stranger on the ferry took our picture as we set sail to our new home on Mayne Island. Big thanks to our new friends for helping us make it here safely. Gotta say, starting this challenge feeling super duper happy. #100happydays

 

 

 

 

 

 

Day 2Day 2. Arrived at our cabin hidden away in the woods. Seeing and hearing all kinds of birds I’ve never seen or heard before. The view from our front deck is breathtaking. Slowly but surely getting unpacked and settled in. #100happydays

 

 

 

 

 

Day 3Day 3. When I arrived in BC a month ago this keyboard was brand new, still in the box and waiting for me. About to turn it on for the first time, with a captive little audience. #100happydays

Day 5-1

Day 5-2Day 5. Talk about living in nature. I found these remains in my front yard today. What is this!? Jaw bone is about 8″ long. I am morbidly fascinated. #100happydays

As this blog grows, I hope to post more about island life and our adventures, wherever they may take us. Also coming soon is new artwork and hopefully some new songs. And definitely more writing. Lots more writing.
