no. 88, the finale

We shall not cease from exploration And the end of all our exploring  Will be to arrive where we started  And know the place for the first time.

parting words,

"there are no true goodbyes when the heart still holds dear the memories and the new beginnings, and there are always new beginnings that follow fantastic finales ... the years spent participating in this beautiful collaboration will always live deep in me, the sharing of of our light across the canadian landscape. love you all dear friends" (Darlene Kreutzer)

"It seemed a near impossible task to choose this final photo. Endings can be so very hard sometimes. We began this collaboration in the dead of winter & it seems fitting that we end it in Springtime, where everwhere you turn there are reminders of new beginnings... Darlene, Jaime & Maddie, I don't have the words to express what I feel in my heart. Thank you for saying YES to this collaboration all those years ago, it has been a truly magically journey. & thank YOU...each of you for witnessing its unfolding." (Kirsten Crilly)

"What a beautiful little nook we created together, where we could translate poetry into imagery. Each time a new set of pictures was revealed, it was like opening a little gift. I will miss the anticipation. I will miss creating beautiful things with the three of you. Big love to each of you, and to all who have taken the time to visit our lovely space. New adventures await..." (Jaime Brandel)

"I carry your heart - I carry it in my heart" (Madelyn Mulvaney)
