Ever since the big flood that took out my town (Jamestown, Colorado) in September 2013 I have been displaced to Estes Park. I have performed in Estes Park for their Longs Peak Scottish Festival as well as for the Estes Park Arts Council, and it’s a lovely place. At my home in Jamestown I bordered National Forest, and now I border Rocky Mountain National Park! Every day I see tons of wildlife. Deer, Elk, Mountain Goats, Coyote, Foxes, Bobcat, Bear, and Marmot are a few of my neighbors I encounter regularly. Brendan (my wonderful Newfoundland) enjoys it as well, and we philosophize when we can make time for it.
