The year started with momentum. The January 18th performance of The Griot's Journey was preceded by the closest thing to a media frenzy that I have experienced. Interviews on TV, radio and for newspapers began early in the New Year and then at last the performance itself. This was very well received by my enthusiastic audience at the new Waterloo Region Museum. I have The Friends of Waterloo Region Museum, Mary-Eileen McClear and Anne Childs to thank for such a robust effort. In February my energy returned to me after two half bouts of Flu, just in time for me to begin a very busy season of performances in celebration of Black History Month. I think I may publish my list of activities close to the end of the month.
