Hello everyone, everywhere,
Today was a difficult day at rehearsal. I pulled some muscles over the weekend and had a rough start but things loosened up eventually and everything was fine again. We have a show coming up this week at the Hub and I’m really looking forward to it.
I’ve lived in Alberta for almost twenty years and until recently the economy was really good. The change in the last couple of years was crushing to so many people and I feel for them very much.
And now it’s time to close our eyes and our thoughts, if only for a moment…and rest.
VOICES IN THE WIND
You know, these days I see people lining up for any respectable job. The jobs that they rejected yesterday now seem good enough to fill out the paperwork.
Faces. Faces. So many faces are gone. From everywhere they came, and to everywhere they went. A lot of those who are still here want to leave.
On the flip side, for us to have all we need tramples on the rights of those who truly own this land, who were made to suffer excuses and dishonour while watching so much of their lives disappear.
Some days it becomes almost overwhelming–all these voices in the wind.
(NEVER EVER GIVE UP).
