This is the kind of winter weather we all love. The highlands are bathed in brilliant sun with the most beautiful light blue sky imaginable. As Jane would say, “it’s a summer sky”. I wish.
Sir Sam’s is bustling with activity today and I’m sure this weekend will be just fantastic for them. Also this weekend we have Highland Cup snowmobile races on Saturday and Sunday. It’s billed as oval racing at its best. Should be a perfect weekend for those spectators. The Winter Folk Camp is also on this weekend … workshops to inspire those who enjoy making music. Saturday and Sunday nights they have concerts featuring a host of great artists. Jane and I are going to take in the Sunday concert.
Speaking with Martha Perkins in Vancouver (Editor of the Bowen Island Undercurrent) she said, in our radio chat, that a help program has been established for workers and volunteers with the Olympics who are suffering from Post Olympic Depression. A number of these people who have worked diligently for the past seven years on the Olympics are having considerable difficulty now the “hurrah” has died down. Huh. How about that! And we thought it was just us having Olympic withdrawl symptoms.
