It's very normal for me from time to time, to get an incredible urge to leave the city and immerse myself in the rich and beautiful fabric of nature. I grew up having spent a lot of time in the outdoors, fishing with my father and exploring the Canadian Rockies where I grew up. I have an insatiable appetite for star gazing which feels almost like something I need in order to feel my true self. I recently had one of these urges and so I packed up my car with canvasses and headed to a small island where a friend owns an off-grid cabin (solar powered) on a pristine quiet lake. Once I had settled in, I made my way to the dock that appears magically suspended on the glassy lake.
