Today was a good day.
I went downtown Vancouver with my roommate Lorne and I discovered a wonderful French Bakery that was new to Davie Street. At least, I don’t really remember noticing it before and it certainly wasn’t there in the early 1990s when I was a fixture on those precious rainbow blocks.
When I got home, my cousin Rhonwen Derbez phoned. She’s in from Toronto and doing a small concert tomorrow afternoon. So that’s going to be a fun outing.
I finally won my debate with her over Opera and Rock N Roll.
My cousin is a trained Opera Singer, she graduated from the University of BC and studied in Italy and France privately for a couple of years before settling in Toronto.
With all the music that was I posted, she messaged me last spring to say that she’s opened her mind a bit about fusion and collaborations.
which cracks me up since I know she know more about Opera than me.
so tomorrow will be a big day to look forward to
a visit with my cousin and getting to watch her show with my parents in the afternoon.
