July 25th (Wait, how did that happen?)
We’ve been enjoying a gorgeous summer here in the Yukon, and I hope you’ve been having a great one, too, wherever you are.
This past weekend I had the good fortune to spend two nights at a beautiful cabin at Fox Lake, about an hour outside of Whitehorse. I went alone, with just paper, pens, and several good books for company, and spent my time enjoying the peace and stillness of the lake. I love my family and I love my work, but it was wonderful to temporarily escape the constant demand for attention and to focus instead on fish jumping, bees gathering pollen, sunshine on my skin, and the feel of smooth paper under my hand.
Now I am back home and back in the thick of a busy performance season, caring for my two young girls, and preparing for the fall. I have a few performances to do here at home in Whitehorse, but I’m particularly excited about the Vancouver album launch in September. Stay tuned for more details on that!
