Instrumental Sadness, Stories and Songs On A Grey Rainy Spring Day

There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love.

Last Minute Wedding

When Chelsea and Jordan Harper found out Chelsea’s mother only had a week left to live, the couple moved their wedding date up - planning everything in just two days so the bride’s mum could be there for the ceremony.

Despite the time constraint, the couple successfully pulled it off and married on March 13 - thanks in part to donations from people who wanted to help.

One of these donations happened to be wedding photographer Wendy Teal, who saw the couple’s plea for help on Facebook and decided to offer her services for free.

But what the couple didn’t know was that Teal would be shooting their wedding photos in the same hospital where Teal’s own parents had both died four years earlier from stage four cancer.

'You close your eyes and you still see the accident'

It’s very quiet. We’re still a community in shock


Myles Shumlanski was at home on his Tisdale acreage just before 5 p.m. Friday, winding down after the work week, when he looked out his window and saw the bus carrying his son Nick and the rest of the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey squad roll by. “There goes the boys,” Shumlanski remembers saying to his wife Vivian, who was getting ready for a family outing to the arena to watch the Broncos’ playoff match in Nipawin, Sask., about 20 kilometres to the north.

Minutes later, Shumlanski’s phone rang. Nick, 20, was on the line, and he was hysterical. “The bus was in an accident,” he screamed into the phone...Read The Full Story

'Color has the power to bring life back to the most important moments'

A 14-year-old Polish girl named Czesława Kwoka was murdered in Auschwitz in 1943. Brazilian artist and colorization expert Marina Amaral (@marinamaral2) has created a colored version of Czesława's registration photo.


From Marina Amaral's website:

'One day I decided to combine my fascination with history and skill using Photoshop.  I started to restore and put color into photos that were originally black and white, allowing people to see history from a new and colorful perspective. Each photo is made to be realistic by recognizing the value behind each one of them, respecting and preserving their stories, paying attention to the finer details and maintaining their original essence. Every completed work has gone through long and in depth research, and is supported by the opinions of experts in each particular area if necessary, to faithfully reproduce the original colors and atmosphere. My work ranges from simple portraits to complex and detailed images, taken from various historical periods covering a wide range of topics.'
