Well, I thought I’d start my contribution to Self Portrait Tuesday with me at the lake. This isn’t, stricto sensu, a self-portrait – in that I am not the one who actually took the picture, but, in a larger sense, it is one as it is me posting a portrait of myself. (What can I say, I’m a linguist, I have to play semantics from time to time…).

Me in St-Michel

So this is a picture taken last summer by the lake in Saint-Michel-des-Saints, my refuge from the hassle of the city. My friend has a house there with on one side her mom’s summer house, and on the other, her glass studio. So there’s often no one else in a 1 km radius.

For the last year or so, that is where I went to be with myself. It is a very peaceful place. And a great spot for working with your hands: not only is there the studio, but there also a lot of woodworking equipment and a seemingly unending supply of old windows See, I’m in this habit of making tables and other things with old windows, like this bookshelf I’m currently working on.
Bookshelf

This is where I want to learn glass blowing, and where I’m thinking of setting up a small jewellery work area. And pitch my yurt (when I get around to building it).

The scenery is beautiful, with the lake at the end of what I have come to call “Epiphany lane”, because it’s a wonderful road to figure things out…

    oh, that’s a great picture. Looks like a lovely spot. Welcome to SPT! Sometimes I find it hard to post weekly, but I think it is helping my creative side a bit.

    Thanks. And thanks for introducing me to SPT. Now I just need to try and post every week.
    It is indeed a very lovely spot (of course, these days, it is a little bit more snowy).


What do you think?
