Needles and cones
The Cove Journal

by JoDee Samuelson

The winter solstice has come and gone. We’re on the up-swing now! As the sun rises higher in the sky, every day grows a little longer. Thanks to everyone in the countryside who put up colored lights for the holidays. What a lift they give us during this darkest time of the year. I suppose they wouldn’t be such a treat if they were up all year.

The same holds

A gift of Island poetry: Beth Janzen

Curated by Deirdre Kessler 

GHOSTS

They stood looking out
from every line
and nothing spoke to them.

They whispered to each other
and let their eyes roll up.
They ate the alphabet.

The trees budded, leafed, and coloured
The seasons passed unsung

The snake chewed a little more
of its tail each day until it disappeared.

It was so dark.

I waited and watched the trees.

Tonight the blossoms fall

At the heart

One Great Bite
by Ann Thurlow

If life had an official vegetable, I believe it should be the kohlrabi. When it is young, it is green and tender and vulnerable. Its skin has not hardened; it doesn’t take much to pierce its defenseless heart. But meet up with a kohlrabi in winter and you meet something else. The skin is tougher, the flesh gives a little more resistance. But you know what? It’s still delicious. It still has the same sweet heart.

Profile: Glen Strickey

by Jane Ledwell

Little did Glen Strickey know as an eager-beaver twelve-year-old that some of his uncle’s Sunday afternoon jam-session guests, who welcomed him to play saxophone with them, were world-famous musicians like Oscar Peterson or Oliver Jones.

It may be Saturday nights in Charlottetown, rather than Sundays in Cape Breton, but Glen still plays his saxophone with

Hello winter

Hello winter

The Cove Journal
by JoDee Samuelson

Well, hello winter! One day we were blithely raking leaves in t-shirts and shorts, and the next day we were bundling up against a fierce north wind and brushing snow from our doorsteps. It would be nice to blame Daylight Savings Time for all this, but of course that can’t be true. Fortunately our stunningly beautiful fall weather gave everyone, from farmers and
