The Soiree and Beyond
Posted by Kari-Lynn Winters

Kari-Lynn Winters

It has only been a few days since I left the Northern Tour, and already I am missing our tour and times together.
After the soiree—an incredible event with silent auctions, friendly faces, kind hearts, and a celebratory atmosphere, I flew off to Ontario for a book tour.  I miss having a van full of friends to discuss the events with while listening to Johnnie Cash, a driver that would drop us off at a local coffee shop while he found the schools, libraries, etc., always ensuring that we were on time, and the fantastic scenery of the mountains, lakes, and forests.  The only thing that I don’t miss is the weather.  It’s warm here in Waterloo (about 24 degrees).  Also, the people are incredible here too (just as they were in the north).  I am reminded how lucky I am to live in this incredible nation.

I wrote a wee poem about the soiree….

If the soiree were a colour, it would be salmon pink (my favourite colour).
As vibrant as the reefs outside Australia.
If the soiree were a taste, it would be dark chocolate,
Smooth and melting in our mouths with just the right amount of sweetness.
If the soiree a sound it would be the alarm clock music on my ipod,
Something I love to savour and be in the moment with, but also something that moves me into another great day.
