Place forms who we are. Our way of living in, and knowing, a place is a part of our culture and value. Time in Nova Scotia has imprinted a unique lived experience onto everyone who has touched this place.
Place makes you, and you make place. It may be a subtle and subconscious effect that lies within, but it is unavoidable. Pushed up against the sea, surviving on a rugged land, this place has formed our sensibilities and traditions. When we acknowledge these traits in our surroundings, when we “know a place backwards”, this is the connection and power of place.
