The annual Goodwill Shakespeare Festival in Summerland is winding down today. We had four young women from the Kooteneys as billets–wonderful, polite, creative, enthusiastic all. The same goes for the students in previous years.

Continued kudos to the organizers for their enthusiasm and commitment. The three days are a powerful reminder of the need for creativity, of the bonding effects of such time together, and the amazing positive energy it draws forth. Creativity starts young. Creativity keeps us young.
