The Hampton Herald

This has been a wonderful journey for me, but at last it reaches its end. But before I deliver my final thoughts, there’s one more interview: PC member Bill Oliver (Kings Centre). Mr. Oliver says that a historical figure that inspires him is Winston Churchill. Mr. Oliver described him as a direct man who took charge and made good decisions. Making good decisions was a central theme of our interview, as he pointed out that government needs to focus on what’s best for the province, not just a party. He feels as though it’s time for the different parties, who he believes all have good members, to start working together to bring real change. He notes that we’re at an important moment in history, one where we’re going to have to make some unpopular decisions because that’s what’s best for the province. He feels as though one of the reasons some people don’t trust government is because of the lack of communication governments have with their people. He feels as though government needs to be very open and clear on its position. After that, people will start to understand why the government does what it does. He said that being a politician has actually made him more compassionate and has taught him how to multitask. Mr. Oliver noted that we need a better education system, one that encourages innovation. “Politicians don’t always make the best choices,” he says, which is why he wants input from the people legislation will actually affect, like teachers contributing to education reform. And based on precedent, you can probably guess that he said that he would be a blue crayon. To him, the question had nothing to do with associating a colour with a party, which he says is bad, (and wasn’t the intent behind my question), but simply because blue is a colour that calms him and that he enjoys. Now, I wanted to take this time to summarize some of the more important things the politicians said. One common theme was that the government needs to start working together more. As of late, politics

has become about division, about Viewpoint vs. Viewpoint. But as anyone who has ever been in an argument is aware, not much actually gets done when all you do is fight. Secondly, many feel that the lack of communication is causing a huge divide between the voters and the politicians. That’s one of the reasons we decided to start this column. The voters need to take some initiative, but politicians have a much larger role to play. Third, whipped votes. Some parties feel as though they mean politicians can’t serve their constituents, while others feel as though parties have to be united to get anything done. Finally: be aware and get involved. It’s easy to become cynical about politics, but not trying to change anything, nothing changes. And make sure you learn how to spot the stories that are real and the ones that aren’t. There are some people who spread false information to sway you into voting for one thing or another, so try reading about the same stories from different sources to make sure they’re valid. Just remember: your vote does matter. Sure, it’s just one vote, but if everyone who thought “my vote doesn’t matter” voted anyway, I think the province would be a much better place. Democracy is a group effort, we all have to play our part. That’s what makes it so difficult, but also so great. So, this September, go vote for who you think would run our province 0011 the best. I know I will be.

I Want Nothing This is one of the worst phrases you could say when speaking about your funeral arrangements. Though we recognize some folks would prefer not to have a full funeral service, or to be viewed in a casket; there are still many options available to create a meaningful celebration of your life that will give those left behind a starting point for their grief. Keep in mind that your loved ones will be mourning your loss and looking for support from their families, friends and communities. By saying you want nothing; you may create feelings of conflict and guilt in them when they are trying to choose what’s best for those you care about. Have the conversation with your loved ones and consider what their needs will be.

means. It means that disenfranchised orphans who have slipped through the cracks are brought back into the system. It means that children who are hungry are provided with a daily meal – maybe the only meal they will receive. It means that young women are empowered and brought onto an equal footing with young men in a society where gender equality is far from the norm. When you combine all this with the proven fact that young people who go to school are less likely to contract HIV/AIDS in a country that has the highest incidence of AIDS in the world, you begin to realize that providing an education in Swaziland might just be the very best thing you can do. What better way to support a worthy cause than to do it while enjoying some fantastic performances by incredible artists. So join us on Saturday, August 11 at 37 St Andrew’s Street.

the ability to unite people in a unique way, across all barriers - gender, economic, ethnic and even location. The small towns of Hampton and Piggs Peaks are separated by about 13,000km. We also have vast differences in economic status, culture, and traditions. But on August 11, we will be united in spirit through music. The funds raised at the event will be used to pay school fees for young people in Piggs Peak who otherwise would not be able to get an education. On the surface, that sounds rather bland. It’s when you start peeling back the layers of an education in Swaziland that you see what it really

would like to express their deepest gratitude to all the friends, family and co-workers that visited, sent condolences, food, flowers and donations in her name since her passing June 26th, 2018. We appreciate it all so much. We also want to thank everyone who supported the music and silent auction benefit held on May 6th. Special thanks to Backstage Music, Sacred Heart Parish, all those who donated to the silent auction, Colleen Fair, Shelly O’Donnell, Gerald Pearson and all of the amazing performers. You all lifted Lois’s spirits and made her last wishes possible. We feel very blessed to be a part of such a wonderful community.

SELF ESTEEM EMBRACE THE DARKNESS; SEE THE LIGHT Don't give into the pressure of becoming too positive. I know that must sound strange coming from me. And while I truly believe in the power of positivity, negative emotions must be addressed. We tend to pretend a lot. We pretend not to notice, or even hide what we truly feel. We want to bury resentment and anger. In today's society, the pressure to suppress or camouflage negative feelings is real. However, when we accept those negative emotions we can regain and maintain peace of mind. Acceptance of one's darkest emotions brings about emotional resilience, and fewer symptoms of depression and anxiety. Acceptance involves not trying to change how we feel, but staying in touch with the feelings and taking them as they are. Doing so leads to positive mental health and higher levels of satisfaction in life. How could that be? By accepting dark emotions like anxiety and rage, they will no longer have control

over you. You are in control. You always have been. We have all, at one point or another, said or did something in a moment of anger that we soon regretted. Accepting all emotions whether you view them as negative or positive makes you happier in the long run. We tend to fight with ourselves when we feel frustration, anger, resentment and the like. We feel bad for feeling that way. It is natural to feel that way from time to time. Do not fight it. Accept it. Know that feelings are fleeting. Personally, I follow the five year rule… is it something that will still bother me in five years? If so, I'll discuss it, work it out, and try my best to resolve it. If not, I let it go (no matter how long it takes). Fortunately, acceptance works for everyone. It is effective whether you are dealing with feelings related to intense life events or minor inconveniences. Habitually accepting all emotions not only reduces feelings of ill-being but also is more likely to

lead to elevated levels of well-being. Emotions occur in the brain. They create reactions in your body that change your physical state (sweating, increased heart rate, panic, etc.) Feelings are mental experiences that arise from the body's physical state. Feelings are sparked by emotion, yet colored by thoughts, memories and past experiences. Your feelings are shaped by your own temperament, experiences and varies greatly from person to person and from situation to situation. You are unique and so is your perception of the world and how you feel about it. Do not fight the darkness. Instead, embrace it and only then will you truly see the light. You are 0027 the light!

Gardening reinforces ecological lessons, from effects of weather on plants to the relationships between plants and insects. There are many ways we can encourage children to garden by planting fun flowers and plants especially just for them. Emphasize the rewards of gardening. Parents, grandparents and mentors can promote positive thinking, and by doing so can help raise the confidence and self esteem of their small gardening friends. Kids need to have a space to call their own, but keep the size manageable so the child does not become overwhelmed. Section them off their own little garden plot. Let them choose what and where they want to plant. After the site has been chosen, it is a good time to talk about what is required for a successful garden. Teach the young gardener that growing a healthy garden begins with good soil. Explain that plants, just like people, need to eat and drink. Make sure that the chosen spot gets

enough sun and has a readily available source of water. The garden should be located where is easily accessible to the child and can be admired by others. Allow them to play gardener. Your child’s garden can include flowers and vegetables. The rich rewards of gardening can last a lifetime. Become a garden facilitator for a child and do what you can to create a positive experience. Then stand back and let nature work its magic. Get the kids in your life hooked on the joys of gardening. 0034

Gardening can be an introduction to the many ways children can interact with plants and the outdoors. There are few things children enjoy more than digging in the dirt and making mud pies. They are fascinated by looking for worms and bugs and love to water the garden and anything else in the near vicinity. A child’s garden should be about the excitement of discovery in a world that is always changing. Gardening is a wonderful training ground, teaching children botany, agriculture and the life cycle of plants and insects while helping them to develop a sense of responsibility and accomplishment. There is a wealth of educational experience locked in a little piece of dirt and a few plants. Many children have learned about seasons, plant physics, and insects. They practice math and reading, measuring and calculating. Many small gardeners have potential to develop good work ethics. Most importantly they have fun. The hours of entertainment that

TALES FROM THE CAMERA BAG PLAIN VS. SIMPLE Plain according to Google is; ordinary, unembellished, unadorned, unfussed, basic, modest, and unsophisticated. Simple is defined as; straightforward, easy, uncomplicated and elementary. These two words are often used together and used in the same sentence as ordinary. As I was going through (& deleting) images I came to realize that I was attracted to the more uncluttered, images, featuring one theme, and uncomplicated colours, textures, lines and contrast. I've included a simple image of the Kennebecasis river during a sunset, which has been broken down to three elements; the elements within the picture are further simplified by adjusting exposure or other tricks. For example, the river has been calmed and smoothed out by using a six stop filter, giving me a 30 second exposure, causing the water to become silky smooth. The second component, Long island, is almost featureless as a silhouette since all you can see are the peaks of the trees.

The sky is what brings this image from plain to simple, as it has marvelous if you did not see it for yourself you would not believe it colour. Yes there is some texture in those clouds but the time exposure smoothes those details out. Another technique photographers can we use to reduce an image to a simpler form is selective colour. I hear the groans from many of you who have been involved with photography for a while, since the use of selective colour is cliche; nonetheless it is effective. I remember making an image on Grand Manan island, where I found myself behind a rustic and weathered, small fishing shack, the kind where the fisher whiles away the hours repairing nets. Behind this shed was a red wooden bucket. It was such a contrast to the gray, weathered shed. So I made it a black and white image except the red bucket. It may be corny but it still works for me. I encourage you to view the online version of this article so

that you have the opportunity to see the next image I have included. It is a small storage shed on the side of the hill of a well known farm in Sussex. There is a ton of clutter all around this shed, the farm house, farming implements, bales of hay... I focused on just the shed and the glorious light that was on it. White shed on white snow but the roof and door were red and the sky was blue. Edited for space, see full article & photos at 0032

DIRECTOR’S NOTES NOTES FROM IMPERIAL - JULY The theatre is quiet this summer. We are doing maintenance in our technical department – sound, lighting, stage, etc – and working on the final details of our new marquee installation. And, let’s face it while people love to see live music and theatre, with a short summer like ours we’d all rather just be outside. We still welcome lots of tourists (thanks summer students for helping out!) but for the most part we are in planning mode. I love planning mode! It’s finalizing all of the small and large details – like media buys, show posters, playbills, brochures, sponsorships, hotel bookings for artists, video trailers for Box Office, budgets, media releases, and… I could go on. It’s all of the details that, when done well make the Season run smoothly. Of course were working with people (artists and audiences) so it’s not quite as simple as that, but I still like the principle.

Of course something can always go wrong no matter how well you prepare. An artist can be stuck in a snowstorm; or they can find a body and have to meet with police so they almost miss their show (this happened!). The newly installed sprinkler system can go haywire and soak all the instruments of a visiting orchestra (happened!) or the power can go out when you have a house full of 800 toddlers (happened!). You can perfect the sound for a rock show and still have two people standing side by side while one says it’s too loud and the other, it’s too quiet (also happened). You can have all of the very best of intentions and still have an unhappy audience member or a grumpy guitar player. But, I swear if we didn’t do the work and preparation we’d never make it through the season with our senses intact. It’s funny because I mention all of

these things that have gone wrong and I don’t mean it in any way as a complaint. The truth is that those are the types of things that make a season interesting and memorable. After the soaking of the orchestra’s instruments the whole staff, local musicians and friends banned together to clean up the stage and find replacements for every single instrument and the show still went on. The 800 toddlers were invited back the next day when the power returned and for the most part a sincere apology and taking the time to listen can help even the most unhappy of customers to feel better. Here is to preparation with the full knowledge that it 0030 may not matter a jot. B.
