The Swell Season

Sad music has always helped me put life in perspective; contemplative, achingly beautiful music makes me feel happy. I know it's the catharsis I crave; that I need, that makes me love this genre of music. Anyhow, I think Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova create and epitomize the type of music I love... thank you for sharing with the world your love; your beautiful music; your passion.

I can not wait for your new album to come out!

Struck a Chord

A Ted Talk on living life passionately, meaningfully, wholly and deeply. I'm certain Sandor Teszler would have been a kindred spirit of mine.

Parliament Sunset

Rich and I went on a Quebec/Ontario tour last week. We decided to drive up to Montreal visit an old friend, then slowly make our way back through Ontario stopping in our favourite Canadian cities along the way. We had a fabulous time, ate all of our favourite foods (which we're hard-pressed to find rural Ontario). Japanese, Indian, Korean, Vietnamese... mmm! It was a great week enjoying the simple pleasures of life...friends, family, dinners out, good wine, laughter and fun. Thanks to all our hosts along the way!!
