the air up there

Not much time to breathe lately. I have as much work as I can handle right now. And that's good.

I worked several high energy evenings at Cantos last week, one of which was an all-ages blues jam session. I have a massive bruise on my chin from where it hit the floor when I heard a brother and sister, just barely into their teens, belt out some really nasty-awesome blues standards, while laying down some smoking guitar licks. Definitely the highlight of my week, hearing those two.

In my other work, I have been making my way around East Village, meeting all the neighbours, talking about the future. Everybody has a story. I'm gathering them.

And in my other other work, the latest issue of BC Musician Magazine, the venue issue, has hit the streets. My contribution, Jamming with Ghosts, brings it all full circle.

What are you up to?

Sick. Surviving February. :(

The thing about the bug this season is that is lingers. My husband is in week five. HOpe you are over it quickly John!

Band, band, band, Barbara. Big concert in April. A guest bartione player from the UK will be joining us. All high-toned classical stuff....

Keep on doing that surviving thing, John. Here's some chicken noodle soup.

Week five! Hope your Spousal Unit kicks this bug to the curb soon, Vicomtesse. Can't wait to hear about the big tony concert!

Sometimes I need reminders like that, Lesley. Thanks. Phew.

It's been busy around these parts too. So much for easing into the new year.

On the plus side, your visit is quickly approaching!

I am really looking forward to that, Al! It's always great to see friends and to get away to the soothing coast.
