What About Emotions

November 4, 2020
Fall Landscape by Moore-Cantieni

I believe that the importance of “understanding emotions” is under rated in our society. Medias and self-help books try to promote Emotional Intelligence but at the end of the day it is often addressed as trend. Emotions are often featured a bit like fashion accessories or home-décor tips and tricks…

I consciously started to travel the world of my emotions in my forties. As a girl, I studied at private school with the nuns and loved it. I recalled learning about French, English, Latin, Religion, Math, Biology, History, Geography, Chemistry, and Physique. I learned all kind of sports and had fun with arts and craft! Did someone taught us about emotions? No, I had never heard of it.

Every night of the week, I was going to ballet school and loved it. Dance always have been my true passion and my first love. When I stopped dancing fifteen years later, I sheltered dance in my heart. I locked it and threw away the key far behind my back and never looked back. For the next twenty years, when I encountered anything “dance”, I ran away as fast as I could to avoid it. I was feeling “deep emotional pain” but I had no clues what to do with it. Therefore I repressed it and moved on.

Creative Heart By Moore-CantieniFor me, dance has never been a channel of self-expressions. I love dance because it was an intense amazing trip where I could escape for hours, forget my unhappy home life and stayed focus in the beautiful world of dance. It gave me the feeling of freedom. On the other hand, it was a fantastic experience of “Being One”! One with the moves, one with the music to the point I became the music. I was one with the floor, space, movements, rhythms… This unique feeling of “being one” with the universe was exhilarating… I never dance to express my emotions and I never really understood why other dancers would say that. In retrospect, I must say that I did not know what emotions really were other than happy or sad.

Later on, I studied visual art at Cegep for two years. I had to take two courses just on “colours” for 12 weeks each, three hours per week. Why was I mixing colours for three long hours week after week? Well as an artist, you have to understand colours… The more you play with it, you learn what they are and how to use them… At university, I had to pick a few course outside my faculty. I chose a course on winter camping. Now that was fun! I studied all kind of topics like nutrition, management even philosophy… But I never signed up for the course about “Emotions” because it did not exist. It just fascinates me to see how “Emotions” aren’t in school curriculum… It is interesting to notice that school created space for sex education, but not for emotions… Hmmm… If we want the world to be a better place and reduce the cost of healthcare and reduce the divorce rate; let’s start by teaching “Emotional Intelligence” in primary school!

Discovering Christopher Bradley-Hole

October 31, 2020
Saisbury Labolatory Design Of Christopher Bradley-Hole

Mr. Bradley-Hole is one of our favorite Landscape Designer. His work is of great inspiration to us. We never had a chance to meet him yet, but we enjoyed researching his work and discovering his philosophy.  Many reporters and writers often describe the artistic work of Bradley-Hole with recurring adjectives such as “minimal, harmonious spaces, geometric, and pure proportions”. The consistency and integrity of his design style has become a sort of mantra throughout the international press.

Christopher-Bradley-Hole the winner of the “Gold Medal & Best Garden award” at the 2013 RHS Chelsea Flower Show for the Telegraph Garden.

During an interview he said: “I’ve always had the philosophy that there should be room for people in design. I think design must have a socialist philosophy; it must be concerned with people, like people interacting and enjoying themselves, whether it’s two people or two thousand. It must be about improving people’s lives, trying to do something which is going to make the world a bit better.” He acknowledges this way of thinking involves more time and effort, but insists he would prefer breaking new grounds than just repeating tired formulas that makes ” the world a depressing place because you’re just reducing everything to a sort of banal level.” We personally find this statement refreshing and totally agree with it.
