Jonathan Langley's life took a devastating turn when he lost his eyesight to a rare illness. Once a successful painter and printmaker, Jonathan now lives in complete darkness, rarely leaving his apartment and angry at the world. When he encounters his precocious 11-year-old neighbour, Lupe, the two form an unlikely friendship. Her cheerful presence shatters his hardened exterior, revealing a gentle man struck by tragedy. Lupe leads him to a fresh perspective by showing him the power of kindness, compassion and love.
Based on the celebrated teachings of Louise Hay, Painting the Future explores the power of positive thinking in healing past struggles and learning to live a joyful, heart-centered life.
High school is finally over, and Indigo Russell is living with two of her best friends in the Glebe, an artsy, bohemian area in downtown Ottawa. It's summertime, which means humid, restless nights. The apartment is making strange noises at all hours. Is it just her imagination, or is something more sinister at play?
Meanwhile, Indie has no idea what she wants to do with her life. As close friends and classmates prepare to head off to university, she's left wondering where to go - a task made all the more difficult as her thoughts are interrupted by weird voices. Who are these voices that keep talking to her? Angels, or villains? Is the apartment haunted... or is she?
As she searches for answers, and attempts to control her supernatural abilities, Indie forms a close bond with nice-boy Paul. Not long after, Indie's first love, John, comes back into her life, complicating everything. Fate leads her to Annabelle, a woman who shares her psychic gift and who may be the one to help her figure it all out.
In the face of danger and heartache, Indie must learn to follow her intuition, listen to her inner guide, and discover who she should trust, to become the person she is meant to be.
Indigo Russell is a student at Ridgemont High School, in Ottawa, Canada. Ever since she can remember, she can see and hear things... before they happen. Oh, and she can talk to the dead. Pretty cool, right? Not really.
Indie doesn't want anyone to know - she just wants to be a normal teenager. She just wants to fit in, like everyone else. But when people try to get close to her, like her best friend Lacey, or the mysterious and handsome loner, John, her visions keep getting in the way. Indie struggles to keep her secret from everyone, hoping that it will just go away. Meanwhile, her visions become more intense, more dangerous, more disturbing. Life quickly begins to spin out of control, and she doesn't know what to do, or who to turn to.
