For the Testimony I chose to Document a summer getaway, well kind'a. You'll see what I mean.
My journaling, attached to the back of my layout, was written in French. I printed it on an ugly piece of pattern paper whose colours matched the challenge. Yeah, me, for creative stash use ☺. The translated journaling reads;
"I've always asked myself what strangers think of our little corner of the world. What attracts them here? What brings them to Canada? Why have they chosen New Brunswick? Why do they decide to stay? Why do they decide to leave?
I asked myself those question on a visit to Meeghan Cove Beach last September. We were there with (our grand-daughters). Even though it was a beautiful day, there was hardly anyone there. However, a bit to the side, in the shadow of big trees, were two families of refugees. The men were having a conversation while the two women were watching their children playing on the beach.
For a brief moment I observed the scene before me. Were they seeing the same thing I was? Were they seeing this calm and peaceful place where people can gather without fear? Could they hear the laughter of the children or the birds singing? Were they admiring the view before them? Did they realise how lucky we are to live here?
I never want to take for granted the beauty of the landscape, the fresh air, and the peace of mind of knowing we are safe from war. Never do I want to take for granted how wonderful life is here. "
Thank you for stopping by.
