Doris McCarthy (1910 – 2010) painter, teacher and writer is best known for her vast array of abstract Canadian landscape paintings.
There is a trail proceeding to the bottom of the Scarborough Bluffs named in her honour:
At the foot of the trail is the sculpture “Passage” by Marlene Hilton Moore
Usually I head east when I reach this sculpture. You can walk along the lake to the Guild Inn in this direction. Today, I walked west for the first time.
Here is some of what I saw:
The luminous grasses, and the merry sun
In the grave sky; the sparkle far and wide,
Laughter of unseen children, cheerful chirp
Of crickets, and low lisp of rippling tide. – Emma Lazarus (1849–87)
This is a wonderful place. Thanks, Miles!
