This October has already been full of more treats than tricks. Take this past week for instance. I received a phone call from the offices of Montecristo Magazine a hallmark of Vancouver publications), informing me that my latest submission : "To Top It All Off", was ready to be published online. What a great way to start a day! Only days earlier my Lady and I had a wonderful photo shoot session with our friend Allan Bacani. What a great way to end a day!
Later this week I sit down with Jordan Kallman of The Social Concierge to finalize my involvment in this years TedX. It's being held at Rogers Arena, an amazing venue that is sure to be filled with bright minds, I will have to take a very deep breath before taking stage that night. In the midst of this work-related stuff, I am looking forward to the opening of my friend Mattie Schmidt's (formerley of House Guest) new venture, Hello Goodbye. I love when the Vancouver lounge scene gets another well deserved spot to socialize in. And by the time you read this, I will have made an appearance on Shaw TV for National Poetry Day. As soon as I get a link for the segment I will make sure we get it out to you via social media.
Never to be without good food, wine and friends, I have been invited to an upcoming local harvest dinner at Mt. Lehman Winery later this month and I can't wait. The month wraps up with the 2nd Annual Music Heals Gala: Strike A Chord. Last year we did very well in the fundraisng department and I aim to do my best as the host of the event, to keep people motivated to donate.
I'm writing this from our new office space, glancing up occasionally at the back wall which I painted this past weekend with dry erase paint, the ideas are flowing. As you know, next month is our yearly relaunch. New content, new look, new energy. We are constantly learning and that will always help guide us in providing you with the most interesting material we can muster. Enjoy the Thanksgiving and Halloween festivities and remember, it's always better to give than to recieve!
