Time has a funny way of flying

Been a while since I visited my own site. Lots has happened, it all feels like a yesterday, a very close yesterday. I seem to have a couple of things on my mind lately. They are simply sayings that say exactly what I need to say…at the moment.

‘Say what you mean and mean what you say’  [Dusty Rhodes but not sure if he heard it in a song a long time ago]

‘Perception is 99% of the Flaw’ [during my ongoing quest to become a pun-pro I am proud to say I coined that one]

‘Make up your mind and do what you want to do’ [a recent fortune cookie pull-out]

Perhaps I am more acutely aware of time when the clocks spring forward…almost like  signalling a warning of some sort…enough to drive a perfectly sane (I think so anyway) women to the brink of neurosis, distress..ok: a bout of mild anxiety.

But then again, it could be the coffee.

Mexico-a return engagement

Hitting the stage in Mexico this coming mid-December to mid-January! 

First stop is a return engagement at The Palm in Puerto Vallarta for a few nights and then off to Ajijic for another 3-week engagement at El Piano Rojo. My musician son, Nico, will be accompanying me as we present Encore Piaf…and More; a European style cabaret show featuring some of Piaf’s most memorable songs plus a delightful mix of other tunes sung in English, French and Spanish.

We are looking forward to returning to The Palm and seeing many familiar faces. We are also excited to perform in the new cabaret in Ajijic, which I hear is quite a beautiful spot. The best working holiday ever!

Performance dates, the season’ s list of performers or tickets online: visit The Palm’s website for details. 

Hasta pronto!

Join me (Judy Cornwall) and my delightful family as we celebrate Christmas the Cornwall Family Way, (circa 1983-just think of the costumes!!), with lots of songs, humour, some ‘aw shucks’ moments all headed by a most talented cast of actors and musicians.

Tickets are available through the Chemainus Theatre box office 1.800.565.7738 or online.

Thanks for supporting live, professional theatre on Vancouver Island!  Joyeux Noël!
