my first video for wordless wednesday. this is one made by my friend carol during a lovely women’s weekend we both attended at cascadia retreats in roberts creek on british columbia’s sunshine coast. by luck, we chanced upon an up helly aa celebration which, i found out, is europe’s biggest fire festival.
that’s my kinda torch.
this is bluesman john mayall, pretty much the way i first saw him perform for the first time back in … 1971, i think. i know, he’s not using exactly the same instruments as the guys in my last post … hey, maybe i should find some you tube video for that kind of music, too!

the written word – of course, bloggers like me, we love it. and it certainly has healing powers, in many ways: it educates, it helps us think, it can soothe, it can make our hearts soar.
but there are so many other ways. here is a delightful little music video by m. ward that one of my good stumbleupon friends, mrcclass, a special ed teacher from halifax, sent me the other day. enjoy it!
