A new year, a beginning and a challenge. Once again I am concentrating on getting organized, getting things done and planning my year ahead. It is time I tell myself... no more excuses. I remember a friend years ago who told me that I was the queen of excuses because I could always come up with a good reason very fast not to do something. I used to laugh but the truth is that I am a very good excuse maker and that is not a good thing. It is a fault of mine, one of many unfortunately that has held me back from doing what I really want to do. We all suffer from this to some degree.
But not this year........
So here I sit at my desk in my little home office in front of my computer with a cup of tea, a pencil and planner. Time to really do it. And what is it you may be asking that I really want to do?
Give Louise a voice. I promised her that years ago back when I got to know her in 2000.
She was an amazing woman and I learned so much about myself because of her. I always said that to understand Louise would be to understand all women.
Oh yes... I have to tell you that she was a real life Princess.
I did years of research, built a temporary museum exhibition which later became a travelling exhibition that made its way out to Alberta, the province named after her. I worked with Les Productions Vic Pelletier and we made two documentaries on her life.
Here is a link to the first documentary- The Secrets of the Cascapedia in French.
