My friend Joanna Streetly and I were interviewed on CBC Radio this morning. They wanted to chat with two writers from Tofino. I was a tad nervous, but it turned out all right. I thought the interviewer's question about how could I write from Tofino was a tad silly. That's the beauty of writing, you can do it from anywhere! (But, I must say, having access to high-speed Internet and couriers can help a lot, too, at least for the kind of writing I do.) This picture is not a great one, but it shows a lot of things, including my newly bald husband taking the photo in the left of the frame. He had his head shaved on Sunday to raise money for cancer research. (In conjunction with the annual "Cops for Cancer" ride on Vancouver Island -- Tour de Rock.) Through the window you can see Joanna and I with Paul Vesey, as well as a few locals and the CBC banners, etc.
