1. What brought you to Powell River?
We needed a change from city life, but wanted to stay near the coast; take a birds-eye view of the lower BC coast and Powell River really stands out: a bustling little town, surrounded by nature but without pretense. It was easy to choose, existing for its citizens rather than pruning itself for tourism. There's unexpected arts and cultural happenings, 32 swimmable lakes and people with pioneering spirit.
2. What is it about PRISMA that inspires you?
Lately I have been thinking about the many ways PRISMA enriches our local culture and the people here, and the most amazing thing to me is how people who have never met, who have the common language of music, get together in an orchestra and play.
3. What’s your perfect day?
Waking early and watching the sun come up while drinking a hot cup of coffee and a few glasses of our delicious water, doing qigong practice in nature, going on an adventure with my camera, eating at least two delicious meals, watching a fabulous movie on the big screen, talking and laughing with interesting friends, listening to a good song, piece of music or podcast and settling in with a good mood.
