Robert Paterson writes,

Starting in June, I will be having two interviews a
month on CBC Mainstreet. I have decided to focus on hearing the stories
of the many Back to the Landers who came to PEI in the 1960′s and the 1970′s.

They have great stories to tell that have something
important to tell us again as we enter a time when knowing how to live
simply may become less of a choice and more of a necessity.

For a golden age, they built their own houses, killed
their pigs and chickens, swam naked, made butter and cheese. Most now
live quite conventional lives but what stories! What confidence that
they could do anything! What friendships and what a contribution to
"Our Country"!

I am starting in Eastern Kings - the hot bed of hippiedom. My  guides will be Darla Thompson and John Rousseau.

I’ll be reading, Robert.

You’ve Arrived

May 31, 2005

Thanks to Jeneane for the link to Squarks.  One hopes his business here will not soon be finished and that we may enjoy his company for a while before he rushes away, like a fish in a hurry.

Should we meet in person, and in some small way, find a common
interest; the pupils in our eyes might widen, just ever-so-slightly.
Or, perhaps the widened would be replaced by a scowl of mistrust -
that formation on the superciliary ridge above the eyes. And, one of us
might wonder why an annoying twitch is beginning to develop in a region
on our body that tends to be publicly noticable. So, the apprehension
and an evergrowing cloud of ambiguity lurks; a tad beneath the surface,
but far from the heart of the relationship.
