The Suitcase & The Jar, Author Reading

The Suitcase and the Jar Becky Livingston Fernie, BC

“Mark your calendars! Patty Reedyk will have this book in stock soon. Read it beforehand if you can. It knocked my socks off. I read it in a single sitting (with no intention of doing so). I found myself lost in it from the first pages. A beautiful exploration of grief and love and resilience. How do we find meaning when there seems to be none? How do we go on when we can’t go on? Is there a way togrieve joyfully or grieve lovingly? There is so much to talk about – the realest stuff. Plus Becky Livingston is someone you absolutely want to meet! Come hear how she quit her job and sold her house and spent 2+ years as a nomad, wandering the planet and spreading her daughter’s ashes. This is a conversation – and a book! and a woman! – you do not want to miss. Trust me.”

Festival Of Lights In Fernie

Michelle and I were artists in the Festival of Lights this past weekend and, although the work was hard, it was worth it. To be part of community projects is so important to me and to push us to work in a different way (glowing 3D objects!) gets the brain working double-time. Thank goodness Michelle doesn’t mind getting involved in these projects with me.

The whole event was incredibly fun. Parading around downtown with our families, dancing in a crowd, looking at the other brilliant art installations, drinking hot chocolate and watching fireworks at the end. A great event for Fernie!

“Corteo, which means cortege in Italian, is a joyous procession, a festive parade imagined by a clown. The show brings together the passion of the actor with the grace and power of the acrobat to plunge the audience into a theatrical world of fun, comedy and spontaneity situated in a mysterious space between heaven and earth.”
