...performing "Smoke on the Water" with a guitar and a Saskatchewan grass whistle.
A Saskatchewan smooth brome grass whistle to be precise. Anyhow, I thought I'd post this little video from Saturday before I get to the email. It's amazing how quickly the inbox piles up when you're away from the computer. We spent the entire day on the road. It was a gorgeous day for traveling. Overcast and a bit rainy.
June 12 - As a few of you may have noticed, there was a more serious note to this post last night, but I pulled it off this morning when I learned that the blog post to which I'd linked was gone. Oh well. I was going to find something to replace it with, but ended up working on a poem instead.
June 13 - Some of you may have noticed that I changed the video in this post. It's essentially the same, minus the black bars and two seconds at the beginning. Also, as I mentioned in a previous video, I've gone into summer mode, so the blog will be a bit lighter than usual. By summer mode, I don't mean holiday mode. I'm currently hard at work on two books, finishing one and developing another. As well, I'll be spending a great deal of time on the road over the next couple months, doing research and writing. I'll be attending some events as well. I hope to see some of you next week in Saskatoon at the Brick Books launch of Torch River by Elizabeth Philips and All Our Wonder Unavenged by Don Domanski. I also plan to be at the Saskatchewan Festival of Words in Moose Jaw. From there I'm off to the Fernie Writers Conference in Fernie, BC. Expect a video heavy blog for the next few months!
