Not For Dreamers


Fishing is a tough profession to tackle (pun intended).

  1. Hello, Jim.. I'm boppin' around your blog and actually, quite by a fluke, ended up at "It's a Yo-Yo-Ma Day." So, although your "Fish'em Not Wish'em picture inspired some thoughts (Ms. Vegan here would say "Don't fish'em, Wish'em :) it's the Yo-Yo Ma post that I've GOT to thank you for! When I read your post, I thought, "Yeah, Yo-Yo Ma. What a great idea and I immediately went to You Tube to find something. Came up with this. You HAVE to listen to it. Yo-Yo-Ma talks about how Bobby McFerrin changed his life. For some reason, that video just hit the spot tonight. Beautiful! Thank you! (There is one glaring wrong note in the piano though. Listen for it. But it doesn't matter at all.)

    1. Carol,thanks. Yes that piano wrong note was 'there' and thankfully it was a 'jammin' session. Now to Silent Woods.....I have most of Yo Yo Ma's recordings but don't recall hearing this one. Guess what I may use this Sunday on Eclectic Tastes? It was lovely and got my day off in a right direction.

  3. Good pun, Jim! And great photo. Love the name on the boat! From your photos lately, this looks like such a colourful spot. It makes for great images. You must be one happy photographer!

    1. Yes I am! Spring colour is what all we 'northerners' lack this time of year, don't you think.
      Thanks Martha.

    1. Nothing better than a fishing village to get the nostrils tuned up,Ivan. It is very colourful there.

  5. OOOOHH that Silent Woods video has brought tears to my eyes - quite literally. Loved the Bobby/Yo-Yo jam. What a treat. Oh, and your photo looks like a painting - beautiful :-)

    1. Lisa, wasn't that video moving....to see Yo-Yo really 'feel' and be in that moment. So happy Carol shared that with us!
      Good to see you Lisa, now wipe those tears away and enjoy your day.

    1. Fishing is for the young! It is a way of life for so many here in Nova Scotia. In fact one of my nieces is married to a fisherman.

    1. Tough and dangerous,Terry. A fishing community here in Nova Scotia lost 5 young fisherman just last month in one of the above boats.
