Reg wanted permission to play a recording I'd done last winter of my first chapter. I said yes about the recording, but because the event was held at night, I did hum and haw for a few days about attending. I haven't driven on Highway 16 at night in quite a few years and didn't want to ask my husband because someone has to stay home with his 93-year-old mother, Vera. In the end though, my husband took pity upon me and all three of us went to town (68km). He and his mum went off and did their thing while I "worked", then picked me up later and we drove home during the rainstorm.
What did surprise me (immensely) was when I arrived, Reg met me in the lobby and informed me I'd be going on stage. Yes, imagine my surprise? I had a small anxiety attack while I listened to his instructions. On cue, I was to walk on stage (in the dark) and sit at a table with a laptop. As the recording of my first chapter played, I was to type away as if I were creating the words as the audience heard them.

The best part of the evening was being back stage with all the performers. My mother sang with three sisters during the war and had so many wonderful stories to tell about their gigs. I was able to have a glimpse of what it was like for her.
