If your eye is drawn to the artist profile in The Buzz in any month, it is probably drawn by a photo of the person being featured. I love these photos. Usually purpose-posed for The Buzz article, they give me a glimpse of a person I’ve met from a new angle, in a new light.

For the past fifteen years, I have usually written the article that surrounds the photo, I

In Her Own Write
One Great Thing

The great film director Preston Sturgis once said (and I am paraphrasing wildly here) “It is as noble a calling to tell people how great the world is as it is to tell them how badly it stinks.” I have thought about that quote a lot in my many years as a journalist. Certainly, I spent a lot of time telling people about the stinky things other people

Is this home?

The Other Notebook

You’ll notice if you see me on the street that I’m not as young as I once was. Birthdays resonate with a slightly dire significance, numbers dropping into place like the black ball in the wrong pocket. Anniversaries prompt me to look back through the years I’ve spent on PEI, looking to set it down in words, to understand.

It was April of 1996 when I arrived on

My Brilliant Career

My Brilliant Career

And Yet I Blame Hollywood
Island Imagemakers
Horoscope for Islanders

To revisit my history with The Buzz, I have to go back to my history with Peter Richards. A modest fellow, he won’t like this, but in order to be accurate it’s necessary.

I first became aware of Peter when I turned of age in the tubular 80s and started attending dances at the late and lamented Montage Dance Theatre.

Keeping it Country

Keeping it Country
by Charlie Hansen

Country Prose

In the beginning there was “The Old Rattler” and his hand-written column that sparked an interest in the country music scene in PEI. Unfortunately, not too long into his journalistic career “The Old Rattler” (Manning Paul Myers), passed away after a long career in country music that spanned many years, many miles, and many bars.

Paul had a drive in him that also

I’m Dining Out Here

My love affair with restaurants began in the early eighties at Myron's Old Spain on Kent Street in Charlottetown. I was four or five and the waitress knew my dad. I can't remember specifically what she did, but she made me feel pretty good about myself. I think she tickled me at one point. When she brought the food I could hardly contain my excitement. The

Where the Road Leads

Where the Road Leads
by Catherine MacLellan

Notes from the Road

I was having a bad day. You might say a bad week. Ordinarily, being stuck in Austin, Texas, wouldn’t be a bad thing for me. It was February 2010 and I was there with my guitarist Chris to play at the annual SXSW conference. There was some mix up with our airline tickets but we had been able to get to Austin with some luck and unusual kindness from the

The Cove Journal

Writing this journal every month has made me acutely aware of the passage of time. This spring we have marveled at the lengthening days, our neighbor’s new lamb, fresh tips on spring seaweed, scent of mayflowers, eagles at the Cove making love—yes, it’s true! Now the days march on to the merry month of June, June of the Rhubarb Social, the Summer Solstice, the
