The Breeze...

Labor day has come and passed which means the starts of yet another semester. Gone for now are the extra-hours of sleeping in on weekday mornings, the late night summer shenanigans, and the lengthy days of sunshine. Sigh... I'm so happy it's the weekend. 

Dr. Dog has been keeping me company in the car this week. Oh, the breeze.

Are you moving much too fast and the good times just don't last? If you're always on the go, make an angel in the snow and freeze...

Happy Weekend. Enjoy!

Happy Birthday, Mackaroo...

Today is my dear friend, Mack's birthday. He's had his own category on the website for years and is the only person I've ever let take over my blog for a day. It's hard to believe it's been some 6 years, Mackaroo, but here we are! I scanned through my photos and highlighted some of my favorites above. You're a man of many talents and a million faces.

I thought a little tune by The Revivalists was appropriate for the day. 

Happy Birthday, Mackaroo. I'm glad to hear you're feeling pretty today.

Fieldwork and Friends..

Earlier this week I made a trip to the Fraser Valley to do a bit of fieldwork. Nothing makes a Tuesday like a bit of fresh air, some u-pick veggies and fruit, and getting to meet the loveable little ladies above. I'll definitely be going back out that way soon. Oh, the places research takes you.

I've posted below something I am quite excited to share with you. The talented cellist, my dear friend Ayla Green, was recently featured in a music video for the band Noiseheads. Ayla is simply delightful. Hearing her sweet cello wail always makes me smile.

It's time to go play in the mountains for a while. Enjoy!





Happy Birthday, Brando-Mando...

Today is a my dear, kind, and mega-talented friend, Brandon's, birthday. He's been quite the ambassador to Canada since I arrived. I'm not so sure this past year would have been as adventure-filled had it not been for this fella. I hope it's a splendid day for you, brando-mando. I look forward to making some music together soon!

Here's a little video from the man himself; Blocktreat...

Happy weekend. Enjoy!

One Year Ago Today...


It's hard to believe that one year ago today Nicole and I pulled up to the border patrol station and crossed over into Canada. My what a year it has been! It seems like forever ago now that Oh My Love was released and that I packed up my car and headed north. The album launch party was by far one of my favorite nights in Pensacola. I am still so amazed and grateful for those who came out to celebrate the release of that project and say farewell for now. 

Much has happened since I arrived in Canada. It's been a year of growth and learning; song-writing and smiles; new and renewed relationships and understanding.

It's amazing what time can do. I've posted above a few of my favorite images from the past year. I've posted below a little tune by the lovely Ruth Moody; I'm happy to have been introduced to her music this year (thank you, you) ;) 

(sigh)... My soul is smiling. Enjoy!

ps: I submitted my first draft of my dissertation proposal to my adviser today! it seems so fitting that it occurred exactly one year to the day after I arrived. PTL!
