A Spellbinding Show
Anne & Gilbert

Review by JoDee Samuelson

There’s a nice buzz on the streets of Charlottetown, almost a European flavour. Maybe it’s the full moon, or maybe it’s just summer. We join a cheerful crowd going into The Guild for the evening performance of Anne & Gilbert: the Musical.

Many of us remember The Guild building when it was still the Royal Bank. We have watched as one small transformation

Kiss the Moon, Kiss the Sun
Kiss the Moon, Kiss the Sun

The Cove Journal
by JoDee Samuelson

It’s been raining all day and we’re tired of being indoors, so it’s a perfect evening to attend the Victoria Playhouse. Everyone has been saying good things about the play Kiss the Moon, Kiss the Sun. The synopsis on-line reads: “A pregnant young woman and a disabled man meet at a bus stop and begin a friendship that will change their lives forever.” Sounds a little heavy, bu

The Golden Hour
The Golden Hour

The Cove Journal
by JoDee Samuelson

There is a time in the evening just before sunset—not every day, but a clear day with a little dust in the sky—when the whole world is briefly bathed in soft yellow-orange light. Photographers call this the “Golden Hour,” and if you’re down at the shore when this happens you feel extremely special. The red capes literally glow, and everything pauses while the sun blesses t

The Cove Journal
by JoDee Samuelson

Last month on Mother’s Day I naturally cast my thoughts back to my own mother, Constance Victoria Swanson, who was born in St. Paul, Minnesota, just before the beginning of World War I. If Mom knew I was writing this column, she’d be so proud. She’d be telling all her friends about me, and sending me ideas every week.

Mom was a woman who believed wholeheartedly in

Oh Joyful Spring
Oh Joyful Spring

The Cove Journal
by JoDee Samuelson

The winter tires are put away, the snow blower man has been paid in full, and the tomato seedlings have their second leaves. It must be spring.

As snow melts back from the walkway, the first flowers to appear are dear little crocuses, spreading their six petals into the sun during the day, closing up protectively at night, asking nothing of anyone except, “Please

Attitude is Everything
Attitude is Everything

The Cove Journal
by JoDee Samuelson

It is the middle of March, and while open water beckons over the horizon, the land remains imprisoned by ice and snow. Three weeks ago we made a snow-woman down at the shore. She is still plump and bossy. Today is overcast and she does not need her sunglasses, but they look good on her, she thinks. Besides they’re frozen to her nose. Which is to say that she i

The Lonely Hunter
The Lonely Hunter

The Cove Journal
by JoDee Samuelson

Long blue shadows stretch across the field as the lonely hunter zigzags through the snowy countryside, dragging his tail behind him. Perhaps he is the same fellow who swings through our yard as part of his daily regimen, stopping by the bird feeder to dig in the snow for fallen seeds, then wandering over to dig through the compost pile to find some edible morsel.

Pheasants Are Pleasant

The Cove Journal
by JoDee Samuelson

The season of flannel sheets and down-filled duvets is upon us. Let us sing the praises of luxurious bedding. And fluffy wool socks. Next Christmas I am going to cut to the chase and buy angora-blend socks for everybody, because I finally realize that fuzzy socks are a gift that keeps on giving.

Speaking of Christmas, we’ve had special visitors at our bird feeder s

Down by the Sea
Down by the Sea

The Cove Journal
by JoDee Samuelson

It’s still dark out when the phone rings. “It looks like a beautiful morning. Should we have coffee?” “Sounds good.” I get out the thermos and start making another pot.

The sun is barely up as we make our way through the snowy woods to the shore. The steps down to the beach have been taken up, so gingerly we let ourselves over the bank, trying to find a foothold

Don’t Get Bogged Down

The Cove Journal
by JoDee Samuelson

I was feeling a little blue today. My brother out in Alberta is not well and I got caught up in one of those loops of memories and mixed emotions that seem to have no end. My brother’s a motorcycle guy. He collects old tractors, puts bicycles together from scratch, brings home washing machines from the dump and makes them work again. I’m not sure if we’d be friends if we

The Cove Journal Review
by JoDee Samuelson

It rained all day, a heavy plodding rain straight down without let-up or interruption. Cats and dogs curled up in their usual places and slept the hours away. School children yawned as they studied their books, teachers sighed and glanced anxiously at the clock, farmers went to town. Sump pumps kicked in and rain barrels overflowed.

Then at suppertime, as

The Cove Journal (review)
by JoDee Samuelson

A new bridge is being built in the Cove this summer. What with the noise of jackhammers, compressors, and dump trucks coming and going, not to mention detoured traffic streaming down our usually quiet road, life seems a bit hectic. Let’s slip away for the afternoon and have a good laugh. Destination: Summerside, home of free parking, ball tournaments, W
