Old Friends, New Friends

September 7, 2008

Dear Everyone,

It was a beautiful day today and we had a wonderful brunch hosted by our good friends Ann and Bruce. I was sipping tea (in a beautiful teacup embossed with pink roses) while admiring the beautiful flowers in their garden.

Thank you for coming to Rossini’s last weekend. It was a very enjoyable evening with friends whom I have not seen for almost a year. The Bob York Trio was awesome and we made beautiful music together. It was a lot of fun!

This Sunday, September 14, I will be appearing at the Jazz Vespers in St. Andrew Wesley United Church located on Burrard and Nelson. Show is between 4 to 5 pm and there is free parking underground. I am quite honored to be in the company of Miles Black on piano, Nino DiPasquale on drums and Dave Guiney on bass. It will be a fabulous set! I will be performing most of Miles’ arrangement for this show. Entrance is by donation. So please mark this date on your calendar and please bring your friends.

It was nice to see old friends from Vancouver again especially Cecile who celebrated her birthday that night. Yes, it was a treat to see the gang and my “survivor sisters”. Cecile, Marissa and I have battled hard to beat cancer and we are all feeling great! Thank you very much!

Arlene and Richard were there. (Remember Arlene? We got trapped in the elevator). Yes, she has recovered from our traumatic experience. And how can I forget Brian, Dianne and Maureen (my favorite audience).

This past week was about connecting with old friends. We spent time with our friends Mike and Marilyn from Minnesota and we toured them around Vancouver and the surrounding areas. That was quite a pleasant experience. It reminded us of how beautiful this city. Sometimes we take these blessings for granted.

It’s going to be sunny and warm this coming week so enjoy and see you soon!
Thank you for your support.
