My archiving project for the month of April continues, and here is my favorite hat. The Hat! I purchased this hat in 2003 in Portree, on the Isle of Skye. It was a┬áspecial visit for me because 2003 was the 200th anniversary of the Selkirck Settlers arrival at Belfast on Prince Edward Island. Some of my ancestors originated in South Uist, and came over on the 1803 voyage, and after they arrived they settled on the north shore of the Island around St Peter’s Bay ( the most beautiful area on PEI).

I’ve been thinking about simplifying things lately…and then I did this. Maybe I really am an everythingalist, or an overthetopalist… Anyway I fought with this painting all day, and though it at best can be described as a strangely ugly piece of work, I think I won. I rather like it, and I can see beauty in its homely face.
