"I am 3/4ths Canadian, and one 4th New Englander - I had ancestors on both sides in the Revolutionary war." - Elizabeth Bishop

Our Prospect Bay, N.S., correspondent writes:

Recently, Prospect Bay, N.S., writer Jan Morrison spent time at the Elizabeth Bishop House. Jan has a blog, Living the So-Called Simple Life, and she's put up some lovely images of her time there, which I wanted to share with you. You can also read more about Jan on her other blog: www.labanan.blogspot.com

Though she has read Elizabeth Bishop's work, this visit was Jan's first to the Elizabeth Bishop House and might then be seen as her "First Encounter."

Jan's interest in the old patterns that are found in the Elizabeth Bishop House seem to echo John's "Today in Bishop," and Bishop's concern about the dying out of local culture.
