After a soggy day of rain, the sun peeked out and lit the fog that was rising from the melting snow over the wetland behind our house. It seemed the perfect end to March. Light and Life begins anew….
The sunset was so unexpected, I ran out with the camera and tripod in my sandals, across a bank of remaining show into a couple of inches of very cold water. I didn’t feel it at first, but my numb feet were a reminder that the warm weather is still a ways off!
I was able to speak to the Town of Bracebridge and the Muskoka Heritage Foundation about why the St. Paul’s Church in Uffington went under the radar. It seems there were no programs in place to act on its behalf. Most of the people I spoke to said that it has been difficult to get councils and boards to move on the issue of heritage architecture. There are a number of reasons for this, one of which is simply the fact that the issue is largely unknown, another is there are too many other projects that have been given a higher precedence based on the interests one elected group or another. I suppose this is something that is going to have to change. I have started the ball rolling by tossing out some ideas on how to address the gap to a few organizations…. Let’s see who bites.
I will be posting late this weekend. I am off to the City to see a seminar and to, finally, visit the AGO (Art Gallery of Ontario). It has been much too long and I am anxious to see the new parts. See you Sunday or Monday!
