Day 8

Bragg Creek.

In many of these community arts centres, volunteers figure prominently in making the shows happen. They’re cheerful, enthusiastic, helpful. They sell CDs, make food appear in dressing rooms, attend to your comfort- they are the lifeblood of the venues.

Bragg Creek is outstanding…in fact, all of our Alberta dates have been smooth and welcoming. There must be something about the expansiveness that allows a relaxation of spirit. It’s palpable.

Off to Edmonton today, for our second to last show. That would be -and here it is again- the penultimate.

Oh, must mention that the food had been exceptional on this trip. A very pleasant and nourishing thing for the tired and roadworn.

More tomorrow.
