We’ve Got This
“A grateful mind is a great mind which eventually attracts to itself great things.” Plato
Well I’m not sure I have a great mind, but I do have a grateful heart and as this is the Thanksgiving weekend, I thought this was the perfect time to thank folks for all they do to make the Whistler Writers Festival such a success. We would not be here without their dedication, good humour and unwavering commitment.
The 17th annual Whistler Writers Festival begins on Thursday, October 11th. Yikes! So much still to do. I tell myself to breathe. And sometimes this actually works.
As many of you know the festival began modestly with a dream to provide educational opportunities for writers and thought provoking reading events for readers, right here in this community.
But steadily this thing we created has grown and taken shape. Folks bought and continue to buy tickets, others provide the necessary financial support and still others, the unsung heroes of all of this, continue to put up with me, coming up with ideas and initiatives I wouldn’t have begun to imagine. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you here, today, on this Thanksgiving weekend and to say again, we’ve got this. No matter what happens, I know these folks are there for me and together we’ll solve whatever challenges come our way.
