This is the time of year when our labrador, Abby really perks up. The air is crisp, the colours vibrant and she loves her walks. We love walking in the Charleswood forest. She’s chasing after the falling leaves, rolling in them like a happy child and every part of her body is smiling. The colours remind me of my work. Amber, amethyst, garnet, emerald, malachite, tourmaline – rich, earthy colours. Vibrant. Abby and I go home and I take the forest colours with me to my work. Life is good.
