The End Is Not The End

Boot camp is over… I think we are all genuinely concerned about the lack of food after today. There seems to be this common knowledge that you leave here a little round. Our pontoon party cruiser captain made us all move to the back of the boat last night so he could reverse… My list…

Star Gazing

Saturday Sept. 27th This evening, we had the first of our showcases. One moment, you’re talking to someone and relating to them on a practical level and then hours later, on stage, they are fireflies, lighting up the room. It’s amazing how unmasking oneself, doing what you love and loving those you do it for,…

Monday evening we were treated to the last of the artist showcases.  Each night has been an experience unto itself, and has showed off the amazing and varied styles that exist in Alberta country music today.  From Lucette’s “murder ballads” to the uptempo and interactive set of Nice Horse, the night started out with a…

Nobody Likes Goodbyes…

  It’s so crazy. This time last week I had a knotted stomach anticipating this experience. And this morning I woke up and realized I’m sad; I don’t get to hang out with all these amazing people all day. I’m ready to go home – and my brain is so full of information I can’t…

Best time ever!

Dear Project Wild, I had the best time ever. I can’t even tell you how much I’ve learned. I feel like when I come home today, I’ll come home a slightly changed girl. Not in crazy ways, but in more simple, subtle ways. Maybe I will walk a little taller. Maybe I will be kinder…
