The Compleat Angler

On Vancouver Island there are many trails for hiking. There are also many people that express their opinions in an unconventional, but effective manner. Near Fanny Bay there is an area that is called Wacky Woods. The folk art along these trails was placed by the late George Sawchuk. Whether you agree or disagree with the opinion expressed, the art will make you think about many issues. And thinking about them is good for all of us.

Today’s picture is Izaak Walton’s mailbox. Walton wrote the classic, “The Compleat Angler”, published in 1653. Whether the trout placed in the mailbox was for someone to take, or for Walton, this picture encourages me to make the world a little brighter and a little kinder.

“And upon all that are lovers of virtue; and dare trust in his Providence, and be quiet, and go a-Angling.
‘STUDY TO BE QUIET.’ (The Compleat Angler by Izaak Walton.)
