Powell River, a car, two ferries, a sail boat, a plane, a bus and heart shaped hot sauce.

A friend of mine moved up to the Pow Wow as it's affectionately bumper stickered to be (heart included! I knew we'd get along...) and invited me up for some transit, seaside, sunburn, gardening, book reading (aloud), hammock lounging, hill climbing, dog petting, sunset admiring, shore thumping (waves!), concert story listening, pretzel eating, up at 4:40 am, 37 -inch sail boat driving, I'm still on a boat for another 12 hours after I'm off the boat after 12 hours, see an eagle catch a fish right in front of my eyes, sea lion dive, tanker motor around, binocular looking good time of a weekend. Thanks Claudia and Fraser and Xena and Matisse. I had a big smiles sort of time!

My new friend, Sherry, made this slide show of the reading I did at the Powell River Public Library. It was my first public reading, ever! (I've read it to friends here and there along it's path of production...but nothing like this!) I was so touched by the gesture, I teared up. Thanks Sherry! Incredibly sweet! I couldn't have asked for a better audience. :D

What book reading is complete without saltwater taffy?

Saltwater taffy love

After the reading, I worked on some felting and gave a felting lesson...

Hi Karen! Is that Claudia Medina?? She’s a friend of mine and I love her! I visited Powell River last year and I told stories there! I had a blast!

I love all of your heart-shaped things! Everywhere you find a heart it’s the universe reminding you that you’re surrounded by love.
And you really are!
Sending you love and light!
