The Squamish Sound Podcast

2019-09-06 Squamish Chief The Squamish Sound PodcastWhen Jennifer Thuncher called to interview me for a story in The Squamish Chief, I was delighted as always to talk about Emily Carr. Jennifer’s story duly appeared in the paper (see separate post), and I was further delighted when she told me she wanted to use a clip from the interview in their weekly podcast, The Squamish Sound. It’s a poignant tale in the Emily Carr lexicon, which I like to think I would have told better had I known anyone else would hear the recording. But you’ll get the point.

If you listen to the whole broadcast on YouTube, you’ll find the clip beginning at 12:00 minutes.

Summer Workstation – Presentation Prep

2B9A6346-3Preparing the presentations for my BC Book Tour is pure pleasure in this beautiful late summer weather when I can move my workstation to the garden. Every time I look up I see a hummingbird at the canna lilies or a butterfly on the coneflowers or a bee on the sunflowers or a chicadee at the feeder. Crickets are singing beneath the lilacs and a warm breeze nudges the tomato vines into a swaying dance. Oh, right … back to work.
