Joe Howe would know




"Take a Nova Scotian to Ottawa, away above tidewater, freeze him up for five months, where he cannot view the Atlantic, smell salt water, or see the sail of a ship, and the man will pine and die."


- Joe Howe

Well, I'm not quite pining-and-dying, but the fan blew in my ear today and I just ached to be out sailing on the harbour. For the moment, the thought of sailing fills me with homesickness, but I think in a week or so it will probably be my happy place. That and tending the veggie garden - I'm kicking myself that I didn't get to harvest my basil or a single tomato before I left!
