The Irish Heart of Newfoundland (1991)

Here is a wonderful video made by a group of women of the Cape Shore, assisted by Bruce Gilbert and Fred Campbell, and sponsored by Cape Shore Area Development Association.

He stopped the car about twenty times and he’d get out and look all over the country and he’d say to me: “This is God’s country. God Almighty owns this country.”

On 26 September, 1907, Edward VII, By the Grace of God, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and of the British Dominions beyond the Seas King, Defender of the Faith, Emperor of India, declared the Colony of Newfoundland, having enjoyed responsible government since 1854, the status of an independent Dominion within the British Empire. The change of name shifted the official title of Newfoundland from the ‘Colony of Newfoundland’ to the ‘Dominion of Newfoundland’.

Unlike other dominions, and quite unique in history, the government of Newfoundland in 1934 voted to abandon self-government in favor of direct rule from London, becoming the rare entity to reject independence in favor of being governed by someone else.

In 1949 Newfoundland became a province of Canada.

sometimes, during weeks like this, when I’m not sure what I’m doing or who I’m trying to be anymore, it is hard to not be there.
something about the salt air, and beautiful epic land and seascapes, make all of that not matter. you just know who you are and where you came from when the wind brushes your face, and your boots dig in to familiar soil.
i need something. I’m just not sure what that is.
