“Become a possibilitarian. No matter how dark things seem to be or actually are, raise your sights and see possibilities — always see them, for they’re always there.” Norman Vincent Peale
“Sixty-two-year-old Arianna arrives in the South of France for a two-week artists’ workshop full of anticipation but burdened by guilt. Back home in Toronto, she has been living with the devastating diagnosis of her husband’s dementia and the heartbreak of watching the man she has loved for decades slip away before her eyes. What does her future hold without Ben? Before her is a blank canvas.”
Drawing Lessons, Patricia Sands
Transitions, art, and France are all found in my current read, “Drawing Lessons.”
I am delighted and thrilled that the brilliant storyteller, Patricia Sands, the author of Drawing Lessons is joining us today and bridging the distance of 3,364 km between Vancouver and Toronto.
We are celebrating the 10th anniversary of Patricia’s first book, “The Bridge Club,” which was published in 2010. Based loosely on her bridge club, the story weaves the reader through a maze of life’s inevitable scenarios.
So, put the kettle on and add to this exciting conversation.
I am your host Rebecca Budd and I am looking forward to sharing this moment with you.
