From northern British Columbia, stained glass artwork created by my daughter Maya


It’s been awhile since we posted something.  Not much happening when you’re 90, like me.  Aging slows you down, and makes the Riddle of the Sphinx in Greek mythology come true: “What goes on four feet in the morning, two feet at Noon, and three feet in the evening?” (The answer is: human beings.)

My daughter from a previous marriage will soon be 49.  She was raised in northern British Columbia, and lives in two places, in Terrace, BC and on Haida Gwaii.

To my surprise, she has taken up stained glass work.   A picture says a thousand words.  Here are a few of her creations.  The quality gave me an incentive to publish this post.
