What A Week!

There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, 
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy. 
 Hamlet (1.5.167-8), Hamlet to Horatio


Pierre Pelletier (1933-2019)

It’s been an intense week as I had to deal with the death of my dad. It wasn’t completely unexpected as his health had been in decline, but as these often go, one can never be sure of when it will actually happen. So I sadly wasn’t able to be there when he passed but did travel to Rivière-du-Loup the following day to take care of the consequences. It’s ongoing…

My dad was an fun-loving man until his health started to fail. His lifelong interest in politics often fueled it chats. For the last few decades until three years ago, he would spend the winter in the Dominican Republic. This led to the writing of my song The Final Winter. I am reposting it in his memory.

Be well!

Hunkering Down

What better than a cozy tracking session on a snowy and blustery day?!

Fraz Milne and Chris Bender were in to lay down drums on two of the former’s new songs and the results sound already really good. I leave it to Fraz to reveal when these will see the release light of day.

Going rather well, I think.

If you want to see me do something different, pop in to Relish Bar and Grill this Tuesday December 3, 2019, when I will be mixing the Django Jazz Band at 7pm.

Hot jazz, great food and a wide variety of drinks! What could be better on a cold winter evening?

Until then, be well!
