This is the first in the Bedrock Series.
In the Summer of 2022 I crossed Canada by bicycle as a riding member of the Spinning Wheels Tour to raise awareness of how to live well with Parkinson's Disease. We started in Victoria B.C. on June 25 and arrived in St. John's Newfoundland September 17. Along the way we encountered innumerable people living with the ailment, and we offered encouragement and support. We also raised funds for some very worthy charities.
On route, I collected interesting and unique rocks from interesting and unique places, and I have spent the last few months shaping and polishing them for use in art projects, ensuring that each piece can bear the sign "Made of Canada". I hope that you enjoy what is to come.
This piece, called Mother and Child, is meant to honour my wife and every woman like her who has endured every imaginable hardship, discomfort and personal sacrifice to bring bright new babies into the world. There is no better example of a bedrock contribution to our society.
