… And I’m back where I started.

I left the Kootenays in April with itchy feet and a busy head. I spent the Spring in Central America, playing music and exploring the cities, beaches, jungles, lakes, volcanoes, ruins and markets. Such colours, textures, sounds and smells. The world is so big and so small at the same time. I'm humbled once again.

So now I’ve returned back to my base between the Valhalla and Kokanee ranges with a soul still restless. I don’t think any amount of travelling could quiet my gypsy mind which begins to roam the moment my body sits still. But it does excite me to know that being back in BC, a summertime paradise, is the next part of my wacky journey this year.

I’ve arrived in the Slocan Valley at the time of year when everything sparkles. There are more shades of green than the human eye can understand. The lakes and river ways, crystalline and full of trout, course through the valleys and ranges bringing everything to life. Wildflowers dance in the breeze, hummingbirds hover impossibly from blossom to blossom, deer peek from cedar groves and the beaver works to repair its dam washed out in the spring floods. My words can’t express the extent of the beauty in this place.

The rest of the Summer looks to be full of music and magic (as well as things like chopping fire wood, repairing water lines and maintaining gardens). Oooh life! I hope each and every one of you is enjoying it!
