Singing to Myself

Review by Emily Jelliffe

After viewing Harmony Wagner’s film, Singing to Myself, my impression as I stood up to clap with the full house of satisfied viewers was a pulling sensation at my heart.

It wasn’t just the beautiful Jenn Grant song that ran with the ending credits, or the delightful closing scene in the film that moved me. It was the storytelling of two main

Tyler Gallant likes the seafood business

by Ann Thurlow

It’s easy to imagine Tyler Gallant behind the stove in a restaurant kitchen. He moves with the grace of someone who is used to juggling a lot of things. He is always looking around; he anticipates a customer before they even come to his stand.

In fact, you would have found him in a restaurant kitchen before you would have found him where he

Island poetry: Yvette Doucette

Curated by Judy Gaudet

This is how I connect to you

all lissom-like the elm trees bend
seawind lifts and scents my hair

there are shapes in evening’s clouds
cat morphs into wolf, dog-bear, whale

a moment comes and passes, a word
bitter-sweet – and twilight is

Of course, once the water freezes solidly we can skate on it, or in the olden days, drive a horse and sleigh to town on the

Hanna Matheson loves to draw

by Cassandra Bernard

Behind round glasses, her eyes focus on the t-shirt logo she is sketching for her friend’s band, Stabbing Joy. Hanna Matheson, 21, has always been inspired by people and this shows through her unique and intriguing artwork.

“People would be my biggest inspiration that influences my work,” she says. Going back to elementary school and when she used
