Arabella - - SUMMER HARVEST - Www.ara­bel­lade­ Sum­mer Breeze,

by Don Li, is the paint­ing that graces our cover for the long awaited sum­mer 2015 is­sue. A young woman in a pretty polka dot dress gazes out at the wa­ter. We can only imag­ine her thoughts and dreams as the wind gen­tly ca­resses her hair and the bot­tom hem of her sun­dress. What per­fect im­agery for a warm sum­mer day. I know that we all ea­gerly await the com­ing of sum­mer, es­pe­cially those of us in the Mar­itimes who ex­pe­ri­enced the worst win­ter in over a hun­dred years. But then, like a gen­tle breeze, sum­mer sneaks in and we are left won­der­ing… when did it ar­rive? Be­cause sum­mer is golden and we seem to ease into it like a silk shirt – warm, soft and mag­i­cal. There are days filled with warm golden sun, soft pink roses and blue­berry wine. The nights are filled with the sounds of birds singing them­selves to sleep, while a warm soft breeze rus­tles the leaves. All the busy bees hum back and forth from the hive to the flower and then back to the hive. It is a Well, hope­fully, by now you are well into ap­pre­ci­at­ing the glo­ri­ous smells and colours of sum­mer. It is a time of true beauty, love and the sim­ple joy of life. We hope ARA­BELLA Sum­mer Harvest 2015 wraps the beauty of the sea­son around your heart and makes you smile wide and long… just be­cause. And that is enough in it­self.
