Hi,
I just got home after a month away.  It feels good.   It was a great month.  Saint John for the night before Canada day, Ottawa for Canada Day, the UK for two and a half weeks opening for Jools Holland, living on a house boat in Amsterdam for a few days, 6 days on the French River canoeing, a great show opening for Joel Plaskett in Springhill, Nova Scotia celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Anne Murray Centre (I got to meet Anne Murray too!) and, yesterday, a family reunion in Londonderry, New Brunswick. It’ll be nice to chill for a little while now.  I’m playing in Fredericton this weekend for New Brunswick day at the Lieutenant Governor’s.  Should be fun.  I may even debut the French translation of "When It Comes My Turn", which was translated by none other than the Honourable Lieutenant Governor himself, Hermenegilde Chiasson!!  What a dude. The canoe trip I did last week in Ontario was a stunning success.  Really fun and great weather.  We swam tons everyday and I got to try my hand at white water for the first time.  It was a bit messy but I had a blast. Here’s a photo of the river at sunset.  A beautiful spot indeed. And here’s a photo of me after finishing a run at some white water.  Happy to have made it through unscathed.
Thanks for the visit.  I hope you’re all doing well.
Take care,
David
