Creativity, Friends and Community

Sorry that I haven't been posting as regularly as usual. I've been very busy this weekend. These three incredible people came to visit Lisa and I and our kids for the weekend. Luckily we have enough rooms in our house to keep them. They are Rik Leaf(left), Marie Josee Dandeneau (right) and Tina Newlove (middle). Rik is a singer-song-writer politically socially involved kinda guy from Winnipeg. Marie Josee is this funky dreads girl from Winnipeg who plays bass like a wild woman and is incredibly playful and funny. Tina is an artist who dances and paints while the other two perform. She works and sells in the Guelph area. They are all bursting with creativity and I loved hanging around with them for three days. Needless to say we had lots to talk about. They played at a couple venues while here. One of them was our church service. They took two hours of just playing and talking. I'm telling you it was an incredible time. I was very emotional through the whole thing. I thought to myself that this is what it's about. This is what it is! Many others said the same. When they pulled out of our driveway this morning, I could feel my heart being pulled right out of my chest. Rik and Tina have been here before and we are friends. MJ was brand new. But I fell in love with her and with them all over again. We all live too far apart, don't we!?
