The Cove Journal

by JoDee Samuelson

June has jumped out at us and we are flying in every direction. Here in the Cove we have our big Perennial Sale coming up, followed by a Rhubarb Social, a few weddings, a potluck—and this on top of our regular lives. Everything is urgently swelling, spreading out, expanding into summer.

While we humans rush about mowing our lawns and digging out summer clothes,

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,

Movie Night 

Review by Sean McQuaid

KNITTING HEADS

I remember my father knitting heads.
Broad back pressed flat
against the rails of his chair,
he leans back,

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,
