Little Love Poems

I/we don’t really do Valentine’s Day. There’s not much point when you celebrate your love every day. Yes, I know. Puke. Five or six years ago, in the early days of love, a friend put out a request for “little love poems.” He thought he might publish a collection. So I...

Februarys Gone By

Februarys Gone By

This is the second February we have been in our lovely little rental house in Sackville, NB. But prior to this, the shortest of months has provided plenty of excitement! 6 years ago - February 2014 I met my love in February 2014, while working on Noel Coward's Blithe...

Garlic Soup

When my friend told me that she loves to make this simple soup, I was skeptical. In fact, I was skeptical right up until I had a spoonful yesterday. This is the perfect soup to make when you're sick. It's quick, simple, delicious and loaded with garlic. And it's...

Sick Day

It got me. I have succumbed. The dreaded cold. It’s mostly in my head (sniffle, cough), but my body is protesting too. I got the “must-dos” tackled and now it’s tea, soup and sleep for me. I’m really hoping if I rest hard I’ll feel better tomorrow.

Walterdale Wisdom

Someone from Walterdale Theatre once told me, "every performance is an audition for your next show." It's always stuck with me. It's simple and obvious and maybe that makes it feel profound. I don't remember who said it; I know that I've repeated it to others. Perhaps...

Ukulele and a Microphone

Wow. That was... exhilarating! My first time will not be my last. It didn't go as well as I hoped, but who cares! It was SO MUCH FUN. I ended up going 8th/last (insert long story about how I wanted to make sure Aldon would be able to make it on time). I had so much...

The Mic is Open

The Mic is Open

I've been to a few open mics, but I've never performed at one before. Tonight is going to be my debut! I got my little ukulele about a year ago and I am just now finally ready to get up on a (small) stage and play and sing in front of strangers. I'm really worried...
