My dear, dear friend Colette is very ill. Colette has influenced my life in ways too numerous and subtle to be able to tally them up. This is remarkable in its way, but she has done this for so many others as well. While most of us have dreams and imagine the time when we might take a risk and try something big, Colette dreams it, then she goes and does it.
You can see some of her work on her new website and on the website for her artist centre in McIvers, Newfoundland, Full Tilt. Colette lives life at full tilt. She is force of nature.

Please get better Colette. We all need you so very much.
