Good Morning World. Artwork by Paul Windsor, Haisla, Heiltsuk. Board Book.
"When I was younger, I would wake up and holler, "GOOD MORNING WORLD!" It helped to awaken my spirit and release good energy and humor. This was the spirit behind this book: a sense of humor with a free style. The paintings in this book reflect my memory and experiences of time spent on our land, and a deep connection to our traditions. Each piece offers respect and love for the animals, plants, and insects, with the sun as the main character. Each sun represents the ancestors of the characters depicted on the page. Being mindful of how we are all connected and interdependent was important for me to express through this book.
The whole purpose of the book is to share the GOOD energy coming from all the experiences I've had in the past, present, and going into the future. There are days that are challenging, but it is important to carry on, improve one's creativity, and learn to respect ourselves and the land we share. By doing so, we can gain a fresh start and a new beginning. GOOD MORNING TO YOU ON YOUR JOURNEY!" - Paul Windsor, Haisla, Heiltsuk.
