Well, old man winter is upon us, the hills are freezing over and Vancouver is in a state of apocalyptic emergency, (they got a whole inch of snow) Skiers and Boarders are getting excited, the more summery folk are gearing up in wool and wood fire, the kettles are on, en masse. Sounds like A good time to hunker down and do some writing, pre-production has begun on the next record and some exciting collaborations are in utero.
This season brings about both a heavy weight with the current state of the world and darkening days with a deeper sense of possibility in the seeds frozen beneath the surface, it is after all, through the process of dying that we are reborn. It is the cyclical nature of our world, as we pulse betwixt our faith and our fears, to do the hard work of composting our selves into our next creative endeavour. Spring will be here soon folks, hold fast!
In the meantime, keep your eye out for some regular Silver Star Mountain dates and coffeehouse features from yours truly over the winter here in The Okanagan Valley. Stay warm ya'll
