Autumn Weekends

This year’s autumn weekends were just beautiful. I had the opportunity to get out to the parks in the region to have a look at the change in colours. There was no disappointment. The trees changed so slowly this fall and even within a day the trees had advanced to their inevitable barren winter sleep.

A sleep that regenerates the soil around them, warms their roots, and creates shelter for all the little creatures in the forest they share. I always enjoyed the fall. In fact, I believe it is the best season of all. Not too hot, not too cold, not too big, not too small. It is just right…

Vancouver Island Music Festival

VIMF Main Stage

Looks like I will be going to the Vancouver Island Music Festival this weekend. Since I’m back in the talk show host saddle, I have the means to go and do some interviews as a member of the media.

I am always looking for a personal story, so don’t expect a lot of celebrity news, expect more from the people that make it happen and the people who volunteer throughout the weekend to make this one of BC’s premier music events. This year the line up of talent is magnificent. From country to world music, there is something for everyone. Camping is sold out, so you might have to ask me nicely to set up your tent in my back yard. I have room, but I get first priority for the coffee in the morning and of course, first rights to the shower!

Have a look at the festival here. I will be on my own at times and also with the wonderful folks at ShawTV –  North Island.

Watch for me. I’ll be the one with the microphone in my hand!
