(Visit the "Positively Purple" page for full lyrics and guitar chords. The video here was recorded during a house concert, and for fun it was turned purple.)


Life on Earth has changed, and continues to change. The future is unknown.

A Song To Remember

It all started in 2002 with "One Seed" the children's story, play and song, a simple 'little book' that has now been used in schools and homes around the world. It is a story about life, and how the courage of one has deep and far-reaching impact. This is now followed by the very timely storybook "The Day the Wind Changed" with the videos and second edition E-book released in March 2020.

Additional fun stories have been added to A Bite of Sliced Bread from the book, published in 1999, and presently out of print. Recent story additions have included "Doors", a gag played on the late Alex Trebek when we were working for CBC Television and the show Outside/Inside, and a redo of the autobiographical- biographical interview with the late Paul Horn, grandfather of New Age Music, titled Music as Healer, which was also originally published in Sliced Bread.

QUOTES: Articles, Interviews, Reviews - See Index of Articles

From interviews with world class musicians to the local neighbour, here 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 and on the internet as promotion for artists and orchestras.

Here you can read about: bassist Gary Karr and his love of chocolate; about the harmonious Celtic Tenors from Ireland and how each is making a difference in this world; or about the amazing life and healing journey of jazz singer Dee Daniels while listening to her singing; and the constantly changing life of the brilliant guitarist Daniel Bolshoy and more...

NOTES: Music & Performance, Recordings & Videos (FREE downloads)

Music is an integral part of this web site - from original music and recordings like "Homemade" to performances for audiences of all ages, and interview articles with world-class musicians. There are lyrics for original songs, and FREE MP3 and Video Downloads, like the children's read-along, sing-along "One Seed.".

A Feast of Words and a Cozy Read
So come on in to the web site for a cozy, comfortable and digestible experience - put on the kettle for a good hot cup of tea, coffee, even chocolate, or pour a glass of wine, for the internet can also be slow and delectable.

Enjoy.

With cheers and gratitude
Rosemary

NEWS - an addition to the Higher Common Sense items. STOP Growth GO Sustainable - a letter to Prime-Minister Justin Trudeau, and governments of Canada and British Columbia. While extreme in thinking and written in 2021 it is VERY relevant to the climate crisis we are facing in 2024.

NEWS - Video by, and update with, international jazz singer - Dee Daniels. Sometimes It Snows In April is dedicated to Prince.

NEWS - I have re-posted the autobiographical interview article with the Grandfather of New Age Music - the late Paul Horn. With his permission it was posted here in 2002, when this site was first created and was about the only such article on the internet. Paul used it himself on his own website. Times change, and now there are many articles - but I just felt inspired to put it back up - titled 'Music as Healer.'

NEWS - "SLICED BREAD" has new pages, and I've added more "Bites" (stories) from the book.
