After an epic drive with two very patient small people in the back, we have landed in my home province and found a beautiful place to live in the Annapolis Valley, NS. Most of my time recently has been spent wondering where the day went, in a jumble of baby toys and long drawn-out attempts to get outside. I will, however, have enough time in the new year to take on a few banjo students. So, here's my ad, for all you Wolfville, Gaspereau, New Minas, Kentville, Canning area budding banjoists:
