Welcome to Quills Quotes & Notes!

Rosemary Phillips - writer, singer-songwriter, performer, author
Behind this home page lies a joyous adventure in words (lots of words), music, images and colour as I share with you the gifts I love to work with.
Read about, watch, listen and be inspired by: world class musicians; original songs and stories for children and the child within; and interview articles with people who are making a difference in this world.

QUILLS: Index of Articles
Here are human interest stories, reviews of concerts and CDs, biographies, and interview articles with both world class performers and the neighbour next door. See Index of Articles. These are inspiring stories of achievement, success, tragedy, struggle, discipline, humour, love, passion, hope, new ideas, old ideas, and life. Most of the articles have been published in newspapers and magazines as promotion for artists and orchestras, particularly for the Vancouver Island Symphony, and Songs Strings & Steps.

A Song To Remember

Since its first appearance on the Internet in 2002, Quills Quotes & Notes has published three CDs, several YouTube videos, and two 'little' books for children and the child within - "One Seed", and "The Whales' Secret". "Colour You Healthy" is a Pocket Guide to the Use, Effects and Healing Properties of Colour, and "Happy Feet Foot Massage" is a fully illustrated manual on this unique technique using reflexology, massage and natural healing techniques. Follow links from the images above and from the menu to the left for details and see the QQandN Catalogue and Order pages. Above is also shown my recent work, published by Reikos International - "A Song To Remember" written for and available through the British Columbia Boys Choir. For information about "A Song To Remember" visit the QQN Spotlight Blog.

NOTES: Music and Performance

Music is an integral part of this web site - from the musicians who have been interviewed for articles to original music and recordings I have created, and my performances for audiences of all ages. There are lyrics for original songs, samples of recordings, FREE MP3 downloads of There is Hope, Asha (Hope), Little Candle, and Thank You . On YouTube watch/hear "A New Song", Asha (Hope), Little Candle, and Thank You , the educational children's read-along, sing-along "One Seed" video, and a new video of just the "One Seed Song" with lyrics.

A Feast of Words
While enjoying the feast of words in the many articles on this site, take in A Bite of Sliced Bread with a story from “Sliced Bread: Notes from a Baker’s Rebel Daughter” - the kind of story that requires some chewing and time for digestion. (Sorry, it’s not a cookbook – I burn boiled eggs and potatoes, frequently.)

"Time for a good hot cup of tea"

A Cozy Read
Pour a glass of wine and read stories by writer Rosemary Phillips
So come on into the web site for a cozy, comfortable experience – put on the kettle for a good hot cup of tea or coffee, or sip on a glass of great red wine (the internet can also be slow and enjoyable), and read about: bassist Gary Karr and his love of chocolate; of the hilarious opera comedienne Natalie Choquette and her family; about the harmonious Celtic Tenors from Ireland; or about the amazing life of jazz singer Dee Daniels while listening to her singing; and so much more…


With cheers, smiles and gratitude
