Hope you’re all enjoying your holiday Monday. Assuming you get one, of course. this August long weekend is so weird and I don’t think I’ll ever understand it as long as I live.
We’re enjoying ours, thanks for asking. The weather has been absolutely beautiful and we’ve been taking good advantage of it to do fun summer things like eat ice cream and corn on the cob, enjoy some cold beverages and relax with the radio on.
Speaking of the radio, I’m going to be on it tomorrow morning, so I’m told.
A little over a week ago, I recorded a segment with our good friend Jason Dunkerley. He’s co-hosting a weekly show on CKCU radio in Ottawa. It’s called Connection, and here’s what it’s all about.
Connection is a new weekly show which will explore the power of connection with people who are making a difference in our community and beyond.
We’ve missed out on so much connection over the past couple of years. We’ll play an eclectic mix of guest-inspired music, and through the show, connect with people and ideas across the fields of health and wellness, creativity and spirituality to deepen our understanding of what helps people to remain rooted and engaged in this changing world.
I think I fall into the creativity category. Lord knows it isn’t health.
Some of the people they talk to are Ottawa famous and some are just regular folks that they’ve met in their travels. I have some friends and family in and around Ottawa, but that’s not enough to make me Ottawa famous, I’m pretty sure.
Anyway, I’ve known Jason at least in passing for nearly 30 years and have been lucky enough to count him among my small group of very close friends for more than 20 of them, so it was easy for us to have a 15-20 minute conversation about life in a pandemic and doing our best to maintain sanity and important relationships. I think it went well. If you’d like to find out, tune in tomorrow at 8:30 A.M. Eastern time. 93.1 FM if you’re in the listening area and have a radio, CKCUFM.com if you aren’t/don’t. You should also be able to yell at your smart speaker to play the station if you’re into that. I believe it will be archived for on demand listening as well if that’s more your thing. You really have no excuse for not listening to it, you guys. Unless you just don’t want to. That’s fine. But I hope you will.
Enjoy the rest of your day, in any case. If you’re looking for me, I’m probably outside.
Update: Here’s a link to the episode for what will hopefully be your listening pleasure, or at least a half hour of your life that you won’t want back. CONNECTION
