Rainbow Valley

Un-Annie Valley

Review by Sean McQuaid 

When is an Anne of Green Gables story not an Anne story? When it’s writer/director Hank Stinson’s entirely Anne-free stage musical adaptation of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s 1919 novel Rainbow Valley

Granted, the novel itself isn’t steeped in Anne content. The fifth of LMM’s books featuring Anne Blythe (née Shirley), Rainbow Valley offers a

Mary’s Wedding

Dream Couple

Review by Sean McQuaid 

Dreams don’t always make sense. Take it from a guy who once spent most of a dream in a sing-along stock car rally teamed with Ray Charles and Anne Shirley (Ray was driving, naturally); but logical or not, true or not, dreams are often emotionally powerful. Sentimental and surreal, dream-spun drama Mary’s Wedding channels that power in spades.

The Cove Journal

by JoDee Samuelson

You never know how a day is going to unfold. You think you do, but you don’t.

One morning after a heavy rain we went to the woods to see if a new crop of chanterelles had appeared. Sure enough, dozens of golden Cantharellus cibarius were proudly pushing their way up through the mossy forest floor. All perfectly clean, no slugs lurking underneath. Yay! Snip snip

East Pointing

East Pointing
The Nature of PEI

by Gary Schneider

It took me a while to discover the beauty of East Point, the northeast tip of Prince Edward Island that juts into the Gulf of Saint Lawrence. The province has so many exquisite vistas and lighthouses, and East Point always seemed like a long drive. But as my passion for birding grew, and I followed the reports of other birders, I regularly noticed interesting

Talking Bands

by Evan James Ceretti

The story of the band Defuser is not a new one, as it’s not inherently different than that of the thousands of bands that start every year. But, it’s a music love story that shows the true power of music and how it brings friends together to create music, which then travels through amps, speakers, and laptops to the ears of hungry listeners worldwide.

Defuser is
