Hello Summer

June 27, 2021

Hi, folks. Happy summer! May this be a summer for us to go out and do the things we enjoy with our friends and families. Prince Edward Island has been blessed with very little Covid but it has been hard for everyone everywhere!

Summer 2020 Update & Rock Barra Retreat

July 15, 2020

Hello, Folks.

It’s been a while since I’ve sent out a note. Crazy times, eh? It’s a good time for kindness and patience and gardening.

2018 Ontario Tour and Toronto Singing Workshop

Hello, Folks.

Happy fall! Today was a great day for apple picking, my 92-year-old mom and I went to a local orchard where old varieties are on offer. I like to preserve a big supply of apple butter. Tomorrow we turn the water off at Rock Barra Retreat for the winter. We had an incredible season there with more activities than ever ranging from Lomi Lomi Hawaiian massage to making your own medicine bag with a Cree grandmother. And did I […]
