I am so excited about this week’s “Most Important Thing,” because Heather is one of my favourite people in the whole world. She is my aunt(father’s sister) and is just a bundle of joy and energy. She’s spent most of my life living in Vancouver while I grew up in Ontario, so we didn’t have too many opportunities to connect. However, since we have moved North, we’ve had lots of trips down to Vancouver and have been able to spend time together(along with my other relatives whom I love equally!) and develop a closer relationship. As I mentioned in my last post, I spent some time in the city before flying to Whitehorse last week and asked Heather if she would like to be in my project! We had a very fun little photo shoot and I am so happy with the results. The featured picture is my favourite… I think it just perfectly captures Heather’s calm, loving nature. However I love the other photos as well because they capture her spirit of FUN!

What do you believe is the most important thing in life?
In thinking about the most important things in life, I kept coming back to closeness and connection. Closeness and connection with people – friends, family and all humans that one has the opportunity to come into contact with. Also connection with ones’ self, with nature and with the world. To be connected with each other, with ourself and with our earth seems to me to be an important part of our humanity.
