“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” – L.M. Montgomery
And I’m awful glad that I choose to celebrate a holiday that celebrates gladness in both October and November. There’s a whole lot to be glad about. The clouds have been dumping water lately, and I reckon the river’s glad to be full. I suppose the salmon are glad about river being full. The bears are glad about the salmon swimming, and the eagles are glad about the bears’ leftovers. Me, I’m glad to run across an eagle print in the sand the size of my hand.
And, I’m also thankful to be working on so much great new music these days. I’ve got collaborations with the Erato Ensemble and the Vancouver Chinese Music Ensemble coming up in the next year. Plus, I’ve finished tracking a new album and I’m working on the mix in the upcoming weeks. If you can’t wait any longer, check out a live version of one of the tunes that’ll be on the new record….
