SIGNS OF LIFE ARE

Signs of life are everywhere. The garden
won’t stop growing. When we turned our backs, moss,
heather, thyme, violets, forget-me-nots, and strawberries
took over. As gardeners, they’ve proved among the best.

The text goes on repeating itself: the walls
are made of it. The dead were the designated
auditors, but since we’ve ceased to believe in them,
it’s become a way of life for the

PEI Symphony Orchestra

Dynamic direction

Review by Ivy Wigmore

On March 4, the PEI Symphony Orchestra presented “Dvořák 8 and More” under the direction of guest conductor Dinuk Wijeratne.

I love watching how conductors interact with the orchestra and Wijeratne is particularly fun. Described by the NY Times as “exuberantly creative,” the multi-talented composer / performer / conductor was physically almost balletic in

Profile: Monica Lacey

by Jane Ledwell

For the Art in the Open festival one year, Monica Lacey created an installation conjuring an abandoned house in the woods. “Drunk teenagers stumbled into it,” she recalls. “I don’t even know if they knew it was part of the festival—but they started to have a house party…The suspension of disbelief they had was so magic.” Eventually, she had to kick them out to

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

Few storefronts in Charlottetown have seen as many incarnations as 177 Great George Street (formerly 77 University Avenue). 

Some remember it best as an Indian buffet called Royal Tandoor or a Chinese place called Silver Streams. Others may have rocked out for a night at the Alibi Lounge. Others still may have

Connecting Prince Edward Island to the land down under

by Teresa Doyle

There’s a reason why Island musicians love Australia. In fact a few good reasons, the first being The Woodford Folk Festival. Paper Lions, Ward MacDonald, Richard Wood and Gordon Belsher, Irish Mythen, and other Islanders have played there. 

This year my son Patrick Bunston and I were invited and The East Pointers were

Bon courage

Bon courage
The Cove Journal

by JoDee Samuelson

February’s slush is giving way to March’s … slush? I recently heard an elderly lady remark that “This winter has been very unsatisfactory.” We have certainly experienced water in a variety of liquid and solid states. At present our garden is under water, but the ground is frozen so it’s possible that the garlic will survive.

The forest has also taken a beating.

A gift of Island poetry: Brent MacLaine

Curated by Deirdre Kessler

Every one will bloom.

Those that fade will do so painlessly.
They will go gently into memory
and be icons for confused lovers in a future time.
Regret will be a strange devastation
in a foreign land.

Those that endure will be exemplary,
their brilliance undoing any hint of shadow.
Hymns and poetry will be unnecessary.

And finally,
mistakes, miscues, untimely words,
missed
