Turtles All the Way Down is an exquisite orchestral piece composed by my daughter, Heidi Ouellette that was commissioned and performed by the MCO this past May. As I was proudly sitting and listening to it’s premiere, I found myself transcended by a solitary transitionary note within a bleak passage midway through the piece. In that moment, I felt overwhelming joy, a lightness of spirit and the feeling that anything was possible. While creating my fibre art piece Turtles All the Way Down, I tried over and over, unsuccessfully, to recreate this exhilaration with a single turtle exploding through the surface of the water. It was then that I realized that the beautiful note symbolized the process not the result and my struggling brave turtles attempting to swim upward from the bottom were indeed the very essence of joy.

Representing JOY in the artist’s solo exhibit ‘Feeling from Without and Within’ September 4 - October 31, 2018 at the 12th Street Gallery/ B&B/ Studio in Brandon, MB.
