Your New View Moments
A thousand words.
They say a picture says a thousand words. And for the longest time, I relied on words to express myself – artistically and emotionally. I was into writing, and it had become my only art-form and creative outlet.
On July 28th, the NewView Society held its annual family BBQ at Lafarge Lake, in Coquitlam. A week before the event, NewView’s Executive Director asked if I’d do a write-up of the event. The job seemed straightforward enough – attend and summarize my experience.
Many times when I cannot rest, I lay awake and I look out my window. The dark black sky, lights up with twinkling stars and the moon shows its reflection. I can hear the sounds of a crackling fireplace coming from my laptop.
When I cannot rest I am on my laptop and I am googling my favorite t v shows for the background. When I cannot sleep or rest, I try to keep my eyes wide open.
