Everything is out of boxes but some items haven't "appeared" yet. Outside my window I can see (and hear) blue jays squabbling, much preferable to traffic sounds of being in the city. As of November 28, 2015 this is my new home and many may be the years before I need to move again!
One of my favourite weddings this past summer - an intimate gathering at Fairhaven Farm Stay in the Cowichan Valley. Before changing clothes to play the harp, I joined a tour of the working farm, water buffalo herd and modern dairy facility. Water Buffalo milk is higher fat than regular dairy cow's and makes excellent mozzarella cheese - you can buy it at specialty shops on Vancouver Island.
September 27th, 2014 - Still warm enough to play outside on the patio.
These four little tykes were dressed their best and were far more interested in the harp than in the wedding proceedings.
They each got a chance to play the strings (clean hands checked first) and thought it was pretty "cool". The oldest one made great arabesques with his arms as I played.

Ever felt frustrated with trying to learn a new piece from written sheet music? If only you could hear what the piece sounded like first! As part of my August 2014 online Harp Notes newsletter I provide YouTube videos of the written music downloads. Now you can learn by watching and listening as well as reading the notes. Ideal for those who struggle with note-reading or prefer aural or kinesthetic learning styles. Try it out!
