Once Upon a Day in Cowichan

I'm sure by now many of you have already viewed the five minute trailer for this spectacular video (produced by DV Cuisine), which premiered last week to a standing ovation. For those of you who haven't seen it, please take the time to watch it now; you will not be disappointed.

This video explains why I have never had the desire to travel much, or felt the pull to move to Toronto or New York to become a not-so-famous artist. Everything I want is right here, right where I live. As I watched the video over and over, its depiction a far cry from the "drunken" Duncan of my youth (maybe that was just me!), I felt my heart swell along with the "Ode to Joy" soundtrack. The full-length video, about 45 minutes, is available through the CVRD. I have a feeling it will sell out quickly...if it hasn't already.
