Star storytelling at Arts & Heritage festival STEPHANIE TAYLOR “Storytelling is the fabric of community. It’s the place where everything butts heads. It’s not politics, it’s the politik, it’s the place where everything shows up, where everybody is allowed. It has to be allowed.” Fabric of the community. That’s what Richard Rowberry and Ray Stothers believe storytelling is, and they have created the Nelson Arts and Heritage Festival to expose the community to this oldest of traditions. Rowberry, the man behind the TNT Playhouse, and Stothers, a man who would consider himself a professional storyteller if he wasn’t a professional bus driver, are more than capable of delivering such a festival to Nelson. Featuring every type of storytelling from spoken word to drum circles and a one-man show about escaped elephants in Cranbrook, the Arts and Heritage Festival is a three weekend celebration of sharing entertainment, knowledge and experiences. Beginning on Wednesday, Sept. 29 with a variety show of sorts at the Capitol Theatre and ending mid-October with a theatre performance at the TNT Playhouse, festival-goers will experience some of the best talent the Kootenays has to offer. “Its a great initiative,” says local theatre legend Lucas Myers, who is debuting his new production, Deck, during the festival. “It’s about time that something like���������� this happened.” International calibre artists like Myers are prolific. The list includes Salmon Arm storyteller James Murray with Blu Hopkins - a man who Stothers describes as “a huge man with the most milky voice. I interviewed him once and didn’t want him to stop talking.” - along with Bree Switzer, and “some young people doing the finest

lights.” Deck is one of those shows that isn’t appropriate for younger audiences, but it sure is telling a story. “Deck has turned out to be very much like a story. It’s about this one character. Sort of,” Myers explains. “I play a variety of characters but it really is this one guy talking about this experience that he had and how he dealt with it. It’s pretty basic, there’s not a lot of bells and whistles, its just me up there with a few instruments a few props, and, well, a deck. “And partial nudity.” While Myers has been called a lot of things, from comedian to actor, he maintains that his style of entertainment is more like storytelling than traditional theatre. “The difference between storytelling and theatre is that theatre will have the fourth wall,

in which you’re watching something take place and you’re not necessarily being included. I love storytelling because I love making the audience aware that they’re there, and including them.” Tickets for all of the performances throughout the three-week festival will be around $15 per performance, but the tickets will be sold on a pass system, where discounts will be given for multiple show purchases. The passes will also be transferable, and volume discounts are offered. They are available at the Capitol Theatre during box office hours. For more information visit www.tntplayhouse. com.

Technology in town Nelson opts out of ATM theft update sustainability tax

Today’s Dr. Science column is about the technology side of science, and how it impacts Nelson. There are many small businesses, or lone entrepreneurs in Nelson who apply science in their technology related jobs. As an example of someone operating in this mode, I interviewed Cam Shute on August 19, 2010. Cam works for Genuine Guide Gear, G3, a backcountry ski equipment manufacturer based in North Vancouver. Cam is a tele-commuter and/or remote employee. Together with his family they chose to live in Nelson while he maintained his employment with G3, so as to escape Vancouver. His family was looking for a small community with an outdoor lifestyle. Cam is a Mechanical Engineer, and he also has a Master’s Degree in Biomechanics. He makes visits to the head office every quarter of a year, and his time is spent 75 per cent on design work (computer), 15 per cent on hands-on measurements and testing, and 10 per cent on project management (telephone and email). His main technical working areas involve the design of ski bindings, avalanche probes, shovels, and skins. Dr. Science was fascinated to learn that a modern ski binding has upwards of 100 parts, and each of these parts is custom designed

The RCMP investigation into the Kootenay Boundary area Automated Teller Machine (ATM) thefts is continuing. A fourth similar offence has now surfaced and is likely associated to the other thefts. The three previous offences are; Kootenay Regional Airport in Castlegar, stand alone ATM on Sept. 10, 2010 at 1130 p.m.; Kootenay Savings Credit Union ATM at Hwy 3A/ Hwy 6, South Slocan on Sept 12, 2010 at 1:36 a.m.; and the Heritage Credit Union ATM, South Slocan on Sept. 14, 2010 at 1:25 a.m. The fourth offence occurred on Sunday, Sept. 12 at approximately 4:30 a.m. Culprits entered the Kootenay Savings Credit Union ATM room at the Waneta Mall in Trail. Culprits then broke into a secure room containing the safe for the night deposit box and attempted to break into the safe, but were not successful. RCMP are making progress in their investigation and are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the suspects, and a vehicle, involved in these ATM

A+ study spaces

The back-to-school season can bring plenty of chaos into the home. Kids go from being carefree over the summer holidays to having responsibilities. Keeping up with homework requires skills and habits both parents and students can struggle with. Setting up an efficient study space is one of the most important things a parent can do to help their child succeed with homework. Make sure the space is well stocked with all the items they may need. If you are struggling with choosing the right supplies/reference materials for their study area, consult their teacher. This will save time otherwise wasted on looking for supplies. Have your child help you set up the area to assist them in developing good organizational study habits. Place all materials in labeled containers, dividers, or trays; this makes them easier to find and be moved to clear the space. Children splitting living with mom and dad can easily become disorganized, so I suggest having two sets of


restoring order Jenn Heale supplies. So, where is the best space for a study area? An ideal area for older children is an office/bedroom where they can shut a door to shut out distractions. Younger children who need more direction may be better off in the kitchen where Mom or Dad can help them as questions arise. Create a supply centre somewhere on a shelf or in a cupboard near by with all the materials they will need. Limit distractions to enhance their concentration levels. So be sure to place their study space away from the television, if that is not possible make sure the TV is off while they are doing their homework. Computers are great resources, but monitor this to make sure they aren’t being side tracked.

30th Annual BC Rivers Day Celebration Sunday, Sept. 26, 2-4 p.m. at the Passmore Hall

”Rivers are the arteries of our planet, they are lifelines in the truest sense”, states Mark Angelo, internationally renowned river advocate and recipient of the Order of Canada and Founder of Rivers Day. The event is a tribute to the importance of the clean headwater areas that descend into the valley and feed the Slocan River, one of the last free flowing rivers in the Columbia River Drainage. This is a free educational event.


Nelson ‘BE Remarkable’ Facebook Campaign

Nelson is vying for funds from an innovative Facebook charity campaign called Be Remarkable. Through the campaign, British Columbia’s 45 credit unions are enlisting young adults from across B.C. to help them give $100,000 to local charities. Every time a Facebook user tags a friend in photos of their region or town, BC’s credit unions will donate $1 to a local charity.

ON OCTOBER 16, 2010, eligible voters within Electoral Areas E, F and a portion of Electoral Area H (south of Enterprise Creek) of the Regional District of Central Kootenay will be asked to vote on whether or not they are in favour of contributing to the Nelson Municipal Library through local taxation. The vote will be conducted on an area-by-area basis in accordance with the Local Government Act. Residents in each area that pass its other voting opportunity (referendum) will gain universal access to Nelson Municipal Library services.


In the fall of 2009, a consultant, hired by the Regional District of Central Kootenay, initiated a community consultation process to identify and assess options for the future of library services for residents in Electoral Areas E, F and south H. The Board of Trustees for the Nelson Municipal Library identified that the current means of providing service (Library membership) to outlying communities was unsustainable, largely due to a significant increase in demand for service. Membership fees for residents in Electoral Areas E, F and a portion of Electoral Area H account for 2% of the Nelson Municipal Library’s budget, yet 17% of library users come from these areas. Residents of Electoral Areas E, F and south H are being asked to consider the establishment of three separate services for which taxes collected would be used by the Library for enhanced services. If the referenda pass, residents of Areas E, F and a portion of H will no longer have to purchase library memberships. The Library Board has committed to a number of improvements to Library services including satellite library services in the Slocan Valley and up Kootenay Lake, improved hours and service at its Nelson location, an improved and expanded collection of materials to use and borrow, and a shut-in service for people who cannot leave their homes to access the library. Residents will have representation on the Library Board of Trustees and, if all three electoral areas vote yes, new and improved services can be implemented to support youth.


Each Electoral Area will be voting on separate questions which include maximum dollar amounts. If the referenda pass, residents of Areas E, F and a portion of H will be required to pay taxes and at this time, based on the taxable assessed values, the maximum amounts equate to a residential tax rate of $0.103/$1000 of assessed value in each Electoral Area:


Must meet all of the following requirements: • On General Voting Day must be eighteen years of age or older • must be a Canadian citizen • must have resided in British Columbia for at least six months and within the service area for at least 30 days immediately preceding the day of registration • must not be disqualified by the Local Government Act or any other enactment from voting in the Other Voting Opportunity or be otherwise disqualified by law. Resident electors not on the Voters List and wishing to register on voting day will be required to produce 2 pieces of identification (at least one with a signature). The identification must prove identity and residency.


Must meet all of the following requirements: • on General Voting Day must be eighteen years of age or older • must be a Canadian citizen • must have resided in British Columbia for at least six months immediately preceding the day of registration • must be a registered owner of the real property, either as joint tenants or tenants in common, and are individuals who are not holding the property in trust for a corporation or another trust • must not be entitled to register as a resident elector within the service area • if there is more than one registered owner of the property, only one of those individuals may, with the written consent of the majority of owners, register as a non-resident property elector. Non-Resident property electors not on the Voters List and wishing to register on voting day will be required to produce: • 2 pieces of identification (at least one with a signature) to prove identity; • Evidence of ownership in the real property (any of the following): o state of title certificate o registered agreement for sale o property tax notice (last); or o property assessment notice (last) • Written consent of a majority of the other property owners (if any) that they are entitled to register for the jointly-owned property. (Consent form may be downloaded from the RDCK website at



The RDCK has enacted a bylaw which authorizes voting by mail ballot and establishes the procedures therefore. The only electors who may vote by mail ballot are: (a) persons who have a physical disability, illness, or injury that affects their ability to vote at an Other Voting Opportunity; and (b) persons who expect to be absent from the Regional District of Central Kootenay on General Voting Day and Advance Voting Day.

Street Talk: Where would you go on your dream vacation?

Butter is not better Dear Editor, If you are genuine in wanting to encourage your readers into better eating habits, then I suggest you begin by reigning in your food columnist (Be a Butter Believer, Sept 8 issue). After a lifetime of self-confessed margarine consumption, she then turns around and ‘endorses’ organically churned cow-juice. Oh, sorry, RAW would be the go. In this mixed-up world “organic” is often a highly dubious appellation. Of one thing you can be sure: if it is labelled as such you will pay the highest market price. In the case of butter, that price is through the roof. Recommending organic, or, God help us, raw butter, to the average punter is akin to helpfully advising them of the

wonderful palate cleansing properties of fresh strawberries - after their month-long champagne binge in February! Will the next column let the big secret out the bag? Caviar is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids! Perhaps the most egregious flaw in this whole, grossly ill-conceived affair would be the failure to mention un-salted butter. Yes, it costs a bit more than regular but it is a superior product. Ask any dairyman. And, you don’t have to drive to Kitsilano to grab some! Please, Express, let’s not forget who and where we are! Chris Wheeler Slocan Park

A response to Nancy Rosenblum

My dream vacation would be going to Bali, for a little bit of business and pleasure. Work hard, play harder.

Lyndsey Luvstar, Nelson

I wanted to say a big thanks to Nancy Rosenblum for her Gay Pride letter. It is easy for many of us to be complacent, especially in Nelson. It is important to keep in mind that we have a Prime Minister who has opposed every single legal right we have won in this country. I think that if he had the opportunity (ie: a majority government) he would take away our legal rights quicker

than you can say Christian Fundamentalist. While I understand the direction that the Chair of Nelson Pride is moving in and I’m all for striking a conciliatory chord, I am reminded of US President Obama. He tried to avoid the race discussion during the election, he probably feels post-race in many respects, just like many of us feel post-gay. Ultimately though, he had to address the race issue

head on and it was one of his most inspiring speeches too. We are not yet there in terms of full acceptance ,and hence freedom, even in Canada. As long as some of us are being hurt and as long as many of us censor ourselves from fully being ‘out’ in our families, our workplaces, none of us our free. Jane Byers Nelson

I would go to China, because I’m interested in lots of their craft and art, but also their gardening.

Suzi Gordon, St. Hanover, Jamaica

NOT enough emphasis on core maths, and sciences. Needs more interactive learning, not memorizing. POST secondary eduction is as important now as a high school diploma used to be, and it’s just too expensive. MORE support is needed for the public education system. Online learning needs to be proven a reliable substitute for classroom learning for each course. POST secondary tuition is very affordable and of high quality, in my experience. What’s missing in our education system at

A toss up between Australia and Japan or China, because they are so exotic.

Frank Smith, Nelson

all levels is teaching financial literacy. Our population is inept and completely uneducated concerning responsible financial behavior. TAXPAYERS paying for transportation to and from schools is wrong, that’s should be parents’ responsibility. WHAT is right is that we have fantastic options and range... what is wrong is that we are trying to find a way to measure magic. VERY very bad: Chronic underfunding and lack of support for special needs students of all types. Really good: Changes at elementary level in methods

of teaching reading and writing, and focus on restorative rather than punitive methods for guiding children in developing kind, repectful ways of interacting with others while getting their own needs met. THE problem is we do not see ourselves as a resource. We are always cutting the education budget. WHAT’S right is the quality, which is high. What’s wrong is that post-secondary education should be universally free to any Canadian who can meet the academic standards.

Publisher’s Note: Nelson Becker

Education vacations A vacation can be an education. People in our community are very well traveled, and many of our local travelers go with a purpose to learn or to serve others. It might be similar to what Bruce Halstead has done in his 31 journies to Romania to help those less fortunate. It might be similar to some of our LVR High School or Mount Sentinal students who travel to help people in developing countries. These kinds of travel, of giving of one self, is valuable and necessary for the betterment of our world. Another type of travel is focused more on selfeducation. It might be learning dances or uique recipes from different cultures.

Both of these kinds of travel force the adventurer into personal relationships and when these travelers come back to the West Kootenay, they bring back with them stories and knowledge from another place. For me, a person who is not likely to go to these places, it gives me an opportunity to identify with the world tourist. Travelers have a responsibility to their community to bring back stories, photos and recipies. Nelson, too, is often a destination for many people to travel to. When we meet a traveler on our streets, let’s make sure to give them something that they can take back with them, things that are uniquely Kootenay.

Fish Heads and Flowers Fish Heads to the loud drunks who weave their way home at 2 and 3 in the morning, waking people up with their inane chatter. I hope that your sleep is disturbed by lots of loud noise very soon so that you can know what it feels like. - Sleep deprived Flowers to the old Canadian flag atop one of our most classic of heritage buildings. You’ve lived a good life, ol’ girl; time to come down from your proud perch, and allow another fresher flag fly in your stead. - Not-asfaded, patriot Fish Heads to the psychiatrists who diagnose youth recovering from street drugs as schizophrenic, then prescribe them pills with horrible side effects that make their lives even more difficult. Please stop this and get them the detox programs and counselling they deserve. - Tired of pill pushing

Flowers to all the wonderful people who donate good quality, lightly used clothing. - Warmer woman Fish Heads to those people who text messages back and forth all day long and ignore the people around you who are trying to engage in a real conversation, so you can answer some pointless text with a “lol” or a “: )”. Lets be a little more considerate, people! It’s no different than whispering secrets while others are present. - Go text yourself Flowers to those people who in the face of a leadership crisis, step up and do something to help, no matter how small it may seem. - Proud of you Fish Heads to people who slag out anything and everything, yet act so insulted if it comes back to them. Get a taste of your own medicine. Watch your mouth

IMTV is, from left to right: C.J. Mini-Van (Musical Personality), Jenna Raider (Host & Creative Producer), Kat Whalen (Director), and Shane Hainsworth (Assistant Director). You can catch the first episode of season two on Thursday, Sept. 30 at SpiritBar, or online at

IMTV season two is second to none In an entertainment landscape rife with at-the-click-of-a-mouse product, the IMTV crew finds a way to fuse online and live shows, providing audiences with the best of both worlds, and a chance for local talent to shine across the globe. IMTV Season 2 Episode 1 Thursday, Sept. 30, doors open at 9 p.m. at SpiritBar, 422 Vernon St.

STEPHANIE TAYLOR With one year of live and online shows under their belt, the IMTV crew is returning for their second season a little older, a little wiser, and a little more fabulous. “We are again trying to find all the local talent out there,” says IMTV hostess Jenna Raider. “We want to give these very talented local artists a place to spotlight their stuff, strut their stuff or make us laugh.” Season one shows, featuring artists as diverse as Liesel Forst, Lucas Myers, and Avril Foxx, have set the bar pretty high, but season two is already bringing together another stellar collection of local legends and as-of-yet unknown talent. Visitors to the IMTV stage for their sophomore season include Adham Shaikh (on November 25) and for their upcoming show, rock legends Savage Blade, drag queen Moira la Noir, and a fall premiere

courtesy of the fashion-friendly ladies of Global Underground. Also featured in season two is the return of the incomparable Marco Sordini, bringing with him an almost other-worldly talent for hilarious banter with Miss Raider, and CJ Minivan rockin’ the mix-tapes for an unstoppable night of sweet jams and deep cuts. “And don’t forget the film shorts, and lots of other fun surprises,” Raider adds. In addition to the live performances, the late-night talk show-style series will be streamed live onto the worldwide web and available for all to see via the IMTV sister company, There, viewers can watch the show on a new, smoother feed and with a more consistent sound, thanks to “Internet superheroes Blair and Zeb,” adds director Kat Whalen. “We’ve increased our bandwidth this year, so we expect the quality of the feed to be far superior than last year.” This doesn’t mean, though, that locals should stay home in their jammies and watch the show online, and the girls are

encouraging everyone who is able to come down to see the show live at SpiritBar. “There are two entities; you come to see the live show and its something, and if you’re watching the online show its a totally different thing,” Raider explains. “Like when you see a live band and compare it to a live-recorded album, its a whole other art.” “That’s why Jenna is so good on stage,” Whalen adds. “She is so good at improv. And Shane (Hainsworth, IMTV assistant director) and I are quick on our feet and can adjust to technical problems behind the scenes.” In spite of some minor problems with Internet sound quality last season, feedback from the public has been positive. “Lots of people, after seeing the show, tell us that they’d love to be on,” Raider says, “but then they get nervous! “It’s a friendly, organic environment though, really guests are just sitting and chatting with me, no pressure, just a really good time.” The crew wants the show to be used as

an outlet for all types of creative talent in the area, something which everyone can agree there is an abundance of. “It’s a really cyclical endeavour for us, because we get to go out there and do what we love to do, and we can help promote people who are doing what they love to do, and provide a networking experience. “We know about so many talented artists here, but we want to know who we don’t know,” Raider adds. Artists interested in appearing on IMTV should contact Raider and the crew through the website, They are also looking for businesses and groups to sponsor the events. IMTV episodes can be seen live every other month at SpiritBar, a place that “feels like home, because the show has a live music element that plays well in the bar scene. “Plus,” Raider adds, “Ryan (Martin) has been great to us, very accommodating. And funny!” IMTV Season Two kickoff is Thursday, Sept. 30, doors open at 9 p.m. and seats will fill up fast, so come early.

Library/Co-op Cookbook Launch Friday, Oct. 1, 6:30 p.m. at the Nelson Library, 602 Stanley St.

Two local institutions have teamed up to create a literary cookbook. Seasonings: a Year of Local Flavour in Words and Recipes will be released at a special event on Friday, October 1. Dozens of cooks and scribes came forward and submitted recipes, poems, stories, and essays celebrating gardens, growing, seasons, and food. Food photographer Heather Goldsworthy of Image Obscura Photography and designer Steven Cretney of The Forest Design Communications made the concept soar. Although the Co-op is a full partner in the production of Seasonings, 100 per cent of the profits from the book will benefit the Nelson Library and its expansion project. The Seasonings launch is part of a special event and open house to showcase the Library’s expansion progress to date and to celebrate the Library’s birthday. The library celebrates nine decades in the community. The evening is an open house, so people can tour the library’s renovation and expansion at its halfway point. It’s also a birthday party, because being 90 years young is no small achievement. Delicious samples and a birthday cake (carrot, of course), supplied by local bakers and chefs, are part of the evening’s fare. Celebrating words, books, and seasons are four of the cookbook’s writers— Rita Moir, Tom Wayman, Eileen Delahanty Pearkes, and Almeda Glenn Miller. A literary reading will start at 7:30, and cookbooks will be available for sale throughout the evening.

Swollen Members w/ Cityreal & Rafferty Saturday, Oct. 2, 9:30 p.m. at the Royal, 330 Baker St.

Swollen Members have put in the work. In 1996 Mad Child and Prev traveled to the B-Boy Summit in San Diego, where Mad Child battled and was initiated into the legendary

Rock Steady Crew, hip hop’s highest respected collective, making Swollen Members one of only three Rock Steady affiliated rap groups. Their latest effort, Heavy, weighs in as their most sonically evolved to date. This is not only an important time for the group but for their potential impact on rap music as a whole.

They say it’s your birthday

Japandroids hits the stage at Spiritbar on Sept. 28.

I once marked a housemate’s birthday by sneaking into her room at dawn, setting up speakers on either side of the bed, and blasting “Birthday” by the Beatles at cranked volume. She did, eventually forgive me. She never forgot that birthday. I’ve had that Beatles tune in my head for days while we’re getting ready for the Nelson Library 90th birthday party. We’ve been doing our best to crank up the volume. October 1st is the big day, and we’re doing it in style, starting at 6:30 p.m. There will be balloons, cake, goodie bags, and tours of our expansion at its halfway point, so folks can see how bright and spacious we’ve become. It’s also the launch of our literary cookbook Seasonings: a Year of Local Flavor in Words and Recipes, a project created in partnership with the Kootenay Country Store Cooperative. As well as fundraiser, it’s a celebration of all things local: food through the seasons, and writers and their words all


Japandroids Tuesday, Sept. 28 at SpiritBar, 422 Vernon St.

Japandroids is a two piece band from Vancouver, BC, and is coming to Nelson fresh from the summer festival circuit. This ‘band’ started in 2006 as a creative outlet for the post-teenage angst of Brian King and David Prowse. Originally intended to be a trio, the boys decided to forgo the logistical nightmare of having a ‘lead singer’ and do it themselves. As a consequence, Japandroids are one guitar, one set of drums, and two vocalizers. They call it garage rock, but they don’t care what you call it, as long as it’s not minimal. Japandroids are maximal - a two piece band trying to sound like a five piece band. Supporting Japandroids gets you into Heaven, no questions asked. Opening will be two great bands, Frog Eyes and PS I ���������� Love You.


check this out Anne DeGrace year ‘round. I found myself salivating over the recipes—which were Co-op Marketing Manager Jocelyn Carver’s department—submitted by Co-op Deli suppliers and cooks at large. But the words, too, are delicious, from haiku to short story. The evening will feature readings by our four “seasons” essayists: Rita Moir, Tom Wayman, Catherine Fisher reading for Eileen Delahanty Pearkes, and Almeda Glenn Miller, whose piece “January Gets a Bit Dark for Me” made me laugh—something we should all do in the darker days of winter. Almeda writes: “To solve the problem of January I put up peaches in the fall. I don’t slice them for pies or anything like that; I halve them because I like the way they mimic a whole stack

of suns in the Mason jar. To come to terms with a January winter morning, I place a few peach halves on a Mediterranean blue plate, and refuse to speak English to anyone all morning. “No speak Eeenglish,” I say. “Leetle, leetle eeenglish” because I don’t really have another language I can speak.” My own birthday is in January, with a new plan for peaches on the menu. But for the Nelson Library’s birthday, what’s on the menu—besides delectable samples from Seasonings— is a celebration of where the library’s come from, and where it’s going. Because just as the sprout grows into the butterdrenched bean come fall, the Library’s grown. We’re ripe with a great collection, shiny new digs full of light and colour, an upcoming referendum with an opportunity to share our bounty with the wider region, and a fabulous outlook for the future. You could even say we’re cranking up the volume. That’s not half bad for a 90-year-old gal.

Sept. 22 - 28 Aries

Life may really be like a box of chocolates right now. You may have too many sweet options and you can be finding it is hard to decide. Emotional love triangles may be manifesting and evolving.


You may discover something new about yourself that can life altering effects. Perhaps you are uncovering hidden talents. Now is the time to let your creative ideas shine. Put the energy into making it happen.


Relationships, relationships, relationships. Got one? Want one? Want out of one? Having troubles making up your mind? Honour your truth within. Say what you mean and mean what you say. Be mindful of your words and how they translate into action. It’s all or nothing right now.

Scopes by Stenya


This is a time for organization, instant action, and being prepared. Have the end goal in sight and everything else that has to be done will fall into place. Remain open to alternative courses of action if they seem more efficient.


Getting into a new routine can be fun and refreshing. Be careful about how you are scheduling in to your day. You may even have to specifically schedule your down time.


It could be a minor or major event that can bring increased joy and happiness into your life. Your careful calculations and paying attention to the details can be paying off now.


Reconciliation with the past can help you in the present. Family matters or past relationships that leave you feeling bitter can be hindering your progress. Take what you have learned from these potent situations and make amends where they are needed.


Are you reiterating negative events of the past all the time? This can seriously drain your energy and even those around you. Do what you can to be in the present and see the beauty of life.


Preparation can be the key to your success right now. Like a squirrel that has to gather its food to last the winter, you too should be getting ready for the months ahead. This can increase your level of enjoyment later down the road.


Get serious about making things happen for yourself. No one else is going to do it for you. If you know what’s best for you, then do it, no matter what people around think.


Time to gather your resource and plan strategically for the next upcoming months. Balance passion with logic and dig deep to find what resources are available to you.

������������������� ��������������������� ���������������� ������������������������ ��������������� ����������� Pisces �������������������������������� New and exciting challenges open your mind to entirely ������������������������������������������������������������������������������������ new possibilities and ways to view the world.

She left here, as we know it, less than one year ago But... Today is her birthday and I am thinking of her. I still hear her laugh and see her smile I remember our talks and going for walks And the fun things we’ve done over the past many years. Today is her birthday and I am smiling inside. It’s a time of reflection. For when I think of my friend, I feel grateful for friendship And for the memories I have.
