Green Soul

        "Life beats down and crushes the soul and art reminds you that you have one." - Stella Adler.

        2020 was a tough year for the arts. My own job with Junkyard Symphony was greatly diminished, although I do credit the Canadian government for creating the Canadian Emergency Response Benefit to help people like myself. It's one of the reasons I started doing photography. I felt that I needed to use that money to develop a new branch of my artistic career that could eventually become another viable source of income. So you can thank the government for all these wonderful photos.

        ‘Green Soul’ is a scene from a building at McGill university. It was on my route to the Trafalgar School for Girls therefore I had to pass by the lovely McGill buildings every day. This courtyard was especially interesting to me. I got off my bicycle and ran up into the courtyard to get the picture, and while I should have gotten back to my unlocked bicycle sooner to make sure that no one had stolen it, I lingered in the courtyard for a while longer just to soak in it's beauty.

        Heather's title for this photo was perfect. I think of the colour green as representing life, and my soul certainly came alive upon standing in this green courtyard. I wondered how many people had gathered there over the years to sit and socialize. It was completely empty at the time I was in it, but to be fair, the university was closed due to the pandemic. None the less, I certainly felt a warm connection to this place. It almost made me want to go back to university.

        Hopefully 2021 brings a better year full of arts. How nice it would be to go to a live concert again and be around people, or even just hang out a local pub and watch a solo musician perform in the corner. Here's hoping our souls stay green!
