The New Show

Well, taping of the new show is done! Today time seemed to be both fast and slow.  The part I know best is the interview. Timing is everything in an interview. It’s a surreal place as an interviewer as while the guest is talking, you have to formulate the next question. Since I never script an interview, it’s not as easy as it looks.

Good news is the show will air the week of July 10th and after that it will be available on the station’s YouTube channel. I will share it all as soon as I know the air dates.

2017 So Far

I have to admit that I have some great people in my past, present, and future. 

Reconnecting with old friends is wonderful. Making new friends is also special. Of course there are a few people who I’ve met briefly in my new city that I’m sure we’ll also become close. 

So much water under the bridge in 2016 made it difficult to focus for me. An unknown health issue led to emergency surgery removed a nasty abscess from my cheek. This apparently zapped my energy for a long time. My excellent doctor friend and musical cohort, took care of that emergency within hours. 

Setting up shop back in Canada, means a new home, a car, and all the things necessary to have a place to put my socks. Not an easy task when you have a life 10,000 km away too! 

Voice overs, writing, renovations, and all that were put on top of my already busy schedule. No rest for the weary. 

This year is a clean slate year for me. I hope it is for you too. I left the baggage that’s not mine on the carrousel. Where it can be picked up by those who actually owns it! 

Best wishes to you and yours!
