SOLD OUT This Majestic Country
Calendar 2016
 By Maryanna Gabriel; Photography & Writing By Maryanna Gabriel
 



Last year I set out from the west in answer to a soul's call. I longed to see this country once more. I travelled alone is a camper van with my dog. I was on a pilgrimage of sorts recovering and healing my past for I had grown up in many parts of Canada. Beauty heals and so does time alone. In silence one can hear one's inner voice and many were the whispers. This simple calendar is an abbreviation of this experience in this vast and epic land. 8.5" x 11" $18.00
+ tax & shipping. Published by Magic Cottage Creations.   Sample

 

 

"Gorgeous. Just gorgeous."

"March made me weep... you can see forever from there...
You need to know I use your calendars every day... I have kept every one of them."

"Just hung your new yearly calendar up... got to say, it is one of the most satisfying and looked forward to events of the year. Not exaggerating. I really look forward to it, and further, enjoy turning every new monthly page."

"Really lovely. Very poignant. I shall enjoy it through the year."

"It is beautiful."

"... an inspired idea and a wonderful collection of photos that convey a lot... an inspiration..."

"Outstanding pictures... We live in an amazing country and how lovely it is to see it
with pictures taken by you with your words each month."

"I knew that a wonderful calendar would evolve from your cross country journey. So thoughtfully put together!
It is such a special calendar with your unique pictures, your blog excerpts and well chosen quotes."

we truly enjoyed the paintings you chose, but even more the things you chose to say about them,

This is the most beautiful thing we have seen in a long time."
