I wrote the following poem in August 2015. I wanted to commemorate the minor miracle of how a group of “artsy” folk in the Village of Fraser Lake was able to pull off the first successful Fraser Lake Festival of the Arts- in the pouring rain yet!
There’s a long rough road ‘tween hope and change
When you are all alone.
But with a roomful of folks from various walks
And a positive correlation of talks
Similar passions and interests arise
To rearrange, change and prioritize.
Hope for the future begins to unfurl
A group of like-minded can change the world!
