Fine design
Profile: Elena Herweyer

by Jane Ledwell

Design, like culture, surrounds us in the tiniest and most seemingly insignificant details of our lives, a visual and functional language we all speak. Consider professional fine artist Elena Herweyer a skilled visual linguist. “We can’t express everything verbally,” Elena says, and, to her, “every language is complementary.”

In her journey from the Ukraine,

Skin Flick

Movie Night 

Review by Sean McQuaid 

Fun fact: Comic book publishers of yesteryear discouraged their scripters from using the word "flick." See, the comics' typical hand-lettered allcaps font, coupled with cheap printing methods and pulp paper, posed a risk of the "L" and "I" blurring together such that "FLICK" might become a less family-friendly word. 

Recalling that, the title of

KNITTING HEADS

I remember my father knitting heads.
Broad back pressed flat
against the rails of his chair,
he leans back,
one knee-bent, woolen-footed leg
braced against the window ledge.
Tension flows down
the sweather-thickened arm,

The Nature of PEI

by Gary Schneider

We live in a very disturbed landscape. There is no other way to look at it. In most other provinces, it is relatively easy to get away into the wilderness—large tracts of wilderness, raging rivers, mountains to climb. In our pastoral province, we have changed the landscape from an Acadian forest system to one that is dominated by farmlands.

In the coming months,

One thing done

One thing done
The Cove Journal

by JoDee Samuelson

It feels good to be out raking this time of year. You can look at your pile of leaves and say, there, that’s one thing done.

Little by little we push off our winter quilts of inactivity and slip into lighter summer shawls of sprint to the finish. But it’s a slow start this year. Although the sun rises higher in the sky every day telling us there is no time to

Burgerpalooza

I’m Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

PEI Burger Love is the most successful restaurant and local food promotion in the history of the Island if not the Maritimes. It’s generated millions of dollars for the local economy in April; a month that was traditionally slow for a vibrant but still very seasonal restaurant industry. Eateries from one end of the Island to the other have been flooded with
