Winter for me is a time to rejuvenate! Try some new activities…especially learning something new! A very social time….connecting with my many ‘winter friends’ here in the BC Kootenay Mountains.
We have had an inordinate amount of snow here this winter, which has made the skiing fantastic!
This winter I have been learning/practising French and taking online courses in cell biology and the gut microbiome. Then there is our annual Winter Carnival, where I volunteer to decorate the Ice Bar with lights.
And for the past month, I have been organizing and promoting a local performance for my brother, SPIRIT, right here in Rossland at the Old Firehall…and which I have to say has been the highlight of my winter!
The show was a huge success and many thanks to Rossland Rotary, John Premier Chef Services, and, of course, the fabulous talents of my Bro!
Some of the compliments I received…
“What a fine musical night! We really enjoyed it. James is a very talented performer. We would have liked to talk to him personally after the show but we didn’t get a chance before we had to get Rolo home to bed. Please pass along our appreciation to him and let him know how much we liked the show. Well done on the venue and all the work you did to put it together but judging by your big smiles and laughter it was well worth it. ” Rolo and Hobbi, Rossland, BC
“Thank you thank you for involving Ed and I on the “know” of such a FABULOUS evening listening to your brother last night! What talent, what a voice, just WOW. We had such a wonderful evening being part of this great venue. You had such a proud look on your face as the big sis for your little brother….and rightly so!” Rachel, Juneau, Alaska
“What a wonderful evening yesterday. Jaap and I enjoyed it soooo much. Your
brother is really awesome. You did a good job getting him over to Rossland. The
organization of the evening was perfect. You can be proud. “ Simone, Hilversum, Netherlands
We also got to spend time with my brother, cross country skiing, playing music, eating great food, and just chilling.
