Heyden Inn

 I was asked to perform at the Trout Forest Music Festival in Ear Falls, Ontario. Someone from BC told me great things about The Trout Forest Music Festival in Ear Falls, and that I should do it because it is great and because it must be close to my home since I live in Ontario. I wanted to do lots of close-to-home shows this summer so this seemed to fit my plans perfectly. Had I actually looked at a map, and had I actually considered the breadth and girth of this Europe-sized province, I might have reconsidered. Though, I have an...

Marshlands

 In Sackville, New Brunswick there is an old Inn named Marshlands. The mansion was built in 1854 by a wealthy merchant as a gift to his daughter. Originally called the Cogswell House, the place was sold in 1895 after the mysterious death of the original occupants. The new owner, stone mason Henry C. Read, renamed the building after the nearby Tantramar marshes — Marshlands.  The locals say it is haunted by the spirits of the Cogswell family: the two stoic parents and their mischievous children. At a nearby pub I grapple...

Textile

    Today we stopped at an abandoned textile plant in Windsor Nova Scotia. This fortress-like facility once produced enough Stanfield Underwear to satisfy an entire county’s needs. Now it stands derelict, exposed to the harsh Maritime elements and the devious whims of local delinquents. As we approached, we saw that the front door was accessible. The wooden two-by-fours that once sealed the entrance had been pried off. The door was cracked open. We entered and were immediately confronted by a daunting, rusty safe. Someone had...

JFY: Taxidermy in an Abandoned Orphanage

I’m not sure how these things ended up here, but there are numerous taxidermied animals in this abandoned orphanage. It doesn’t seem like the best place to store such things. Firstly, keeping stuffed animal corpses in a former home for orphaned kids seems a bit unnerving. Secondly, anyone could crawl in an unlatched window, or thorough some large drainage pipes beneath the building. Say you were sneaking around in there. You might simply unlock the side door and carry the taxidermy out, piece by piece, on your back. Maybe...

Just For You VII

Posted by on 9:48 pm in Blog | 0 comments

This piano might be centuries old. The legs have collapsed and the strings have all oxidized and snapped. Layers of sickly yellowish dust cover the mildewed and sun-bleached spruce.  Someone came through here recently. It may have been months ago. The stranger walked on special pointed shoes — not pointed at the toes, but at the soles. They wore shoes like little stilts to avoid leaving tracks in the dust. The visitor was lured by this ruined and stripped instrument — by the creaking floors, the silence and the depression....

MET18 – Just Four You V

Here is a Mountain Lion. This one appears to be taxidermied, but it is not. Look close. This mountain lion is pretending. Some agreement was made, all down the line, between the beast, the hunter, the artisan and those involved in the transport and display. I can’t explain the specifics, but rest assured, this mountain lion is very much alive. She has been standing still for a long time. She has been waiting for you to arrive.  It’s hard to tell how this one will react when you walk into the room. She has been waiting to bite...

MET17 — Just For You IV

  The body of baby whale appeared in the Amazon jungle on the island of Marajo. There was nobody around to see it arrive — nothing to document or describe the event. I bet there were no animals, no insects either. It likely happened in the black of night. I imagine it happened in an instant. An uncharacteristically cool breeze rustled the leaves of the surrounding foliage and it appeared, or had been there already. If someone had been there, they could have given a more sensible account. There may have been a more sensible sequence...

MET Part 16 — Just For You III

There is a slowly collapsing building in the Russian region of Kamchatka. The barren, grey monolith rests on the coast of the frigid Okhosk Sea. This eroding structure is all that remains of the once bustling fishing village of Kirovsky.  Founded in 1907, the community was named after Sergei Kirov — a Bolshevik commander and close confidant of Joseph Stalin. In the late 1950s, international fishing vessels began drift-netting the Okhosk, depleting the once fertile waters. By 1964s, the village was all but abandoned. The...
