Yes I am indeed a Woman on a Mission…..but I wish I was also a woman “going to” Mission, too! Just got an invite to stop in at Mission, BC on my way back to Toronto October 7 when I do my 2nd VIA Rail Artists on Board singing gig. No-can-do unfortunately as I am…

“What? Visiting Vancouver with no rain gear?” So said my brother to me on this wet, rainy downtown Vancouver day. Off we went to the local dollar store to buy a couple of ruby red umbrellas which stood out against the sea of black, grey & beige umbrellas that everyone else seemed to be using….

I dubbed my trip as the “The “Oh-My-Good-God-Stop-The-Car-Grab-The-Camera” Journey to Whistler Mountain” There is no other way to describe our trip to Whistler Mountain yesterday. I can see why they built up the highway to include passing lanes – you can play the “Spot-The-Tourist” game. We are the ones in the slow lane with our…

When I partnered with March of Dimes (www.marchofdimes.ca) for this “Everyday Heroes” VIA Rail tour through Western Canada, I really had no idea how people on the train would respond. It’s been incredible. Everyone loves the song I wrote for my brother and many people chatted with me after the performance about people in their…

I am my own Flash Mob! Well, that’s how it felt anyway. I was asked to sing in the Jasper, Alberta VIA Rail station so as soon as we stopped, I hopped out of the train with my keyboard, stand & backpack. With a little help from my friend and her family, we quickly set…

“This Land is Your Land This land is my land From………………………………………………………………….”   …………well, turns out the rest of the lyrics depend on where you live, as I found out!   As soon as we started to sing the chorus, the Americans sang “From California to the New York Island….” And the Canadians sang “From Bonavista…

So nice to be back in communication again – yea Winnipeg! I have cell service again…for now.     I have met so many nice people on the train – no surprise. I figured there would be interesting travelers and I was certainly right about that. Having no cell service meant no blogging or emails…

Welcome to Northern Ontario – land of no cell service! So much for my daily blogs which have had to stay in my draft folder waiting to be uploaded. Well, it was probably a good thing because one would not have wanted to miss the beauty of the rugged wilderness around every bend takes your…

What a night!  Have a great little cabin – kinda cramped with a 5 foot keyboard, 2 suitcases, some bags but such a great understanding roommate that we managed to make ourselves comfortable.  Too bad the train was almost 4 hours late which meant it was after 2AM before we could finally lay our heads…

ALL Aboard!!!! Tomorrow, let the fun begin! I will board the VIA Rail train in Belleville and switch to another train in Toronto bound for Vancouver. OK, you may say. Sounds like what a lot of other people will be doing, too. Well, it is…except they don’t have to sing for their supper – literally….
