Editor's Update

Slow & steady, that's been our

growth motto the last

four and a half years.

It brings us much joy to

present to you our first

20-page Grapevine with

eight pages of colour!

It may seem like a small

step, but it certainly adds

a new level of logistics...I

think we have figured it

out. We're happy about the

current position of the paper

and even more excited about

where it could go. Slow & steady...






This approach to growth has properly served

the Deep Roots Music Festival as well. Now

in their tenth season (congratulations!),

Wolfville is gearing up for another weekend

music celebration (September 27-29). The

main thing I've come to understand about

the Festival over the years is to have faith

and confidence in the committee's selection

of performers. Once again, I don't recognize

too many in the line-up, but that's all part

of the fun! Deep Roots exposes us to an

incredible array of new and local music and

in turn, it's satisfying to see these performers

recognize the Valley's memorable

hospitality when they're

on stage. If attending Deep

Roots has always been on

your bucket list, then what

are you waiting for? This is

your year! Check out the

full schedule on pages 10

& 11.

This issue has a wine focus

(pages 12 & 13) because

there's always plenty of exciting

progress being made in the

industry. From grape stomping to

corn boils and live music, every winery

has something special planned for this year's

Fall Wine Festival (September 13 – October

14). There are currently fourteen wineries in

the province making grape wine, and there

projected to be at least twenty by the year

2020. Slow & steady...

Just as the plodding theme is running

throughout this update, don't go rushing

through this issue. There is a lot packed into

it! Thank you so much for your continued

September 19 - October 3, 2013


While hiking around Cape Chignecto, I came across what can only

be described as trail magic. At the bottom of the eight-switchback

hill into Mill Brook, someone (who knows who?) left two

still-cold beers in the middle of the trail for

whomever might be in need of

such a delight.

Thank you, whoever you are.

They tasted oh, so good, unbelievably

good. After hiking a grueling 46 K,

nothing could be as wonderful as a sweet,

cold, delicious beer. Hikers treating hikers

with thoughtful acts, no wonder I like

hiking so much.

Jackson is a two-year-old neutered male tabby. He is white

with a very dark tail. Jackson was a stray in Wolfville, with

a leg injury which has since been attended to. Very unique

colouring on this guy!

Update on BOOTS: Still Available

Boots is a female black-andwhite

cat who is about two

Stories from Valley musicians compiled by Mike Aubé

Calling all Valley performers and songwriters! I'm looking for your gig stories and

stories-behind-the-song. If you have something to share, mail them, along with a

high-resolution photo, to mike@mikeaube.com. This week's installment is from Donna

Holmes, Host of “Open Mike & Donna” Tuesday nights at TAN Coffee, Wolfville.

Writing a song is hard, except when it’s easy. Easy

songs occur to me about once per decade; the

difficult ones, about once a year. In other words, my

repertoire needed a boost. So last November I decided

to write 30 poems in 30 days. About 50% of what I

wrote that month was crap, and a good portion of the

remaining poems decided they liked being poetry rather

than songs and that was that. This left me with two new

songs. I was thrilled - I had just doubled my usual output!

They’re both about winter –

that happens when you write in

November. I haven’t been able

to perform them for a while.

People get upset when you sing

songs called “Wintertime” in

August. The weather’s finally getting cooler again. Come by TAN

Café this Tuesday and I’ll play them for you. Then you can play,

and tell me the story behind your song.

The final push is on for building a hospice

and palliative care centre in the

Annapolis Valley. That’s why the Valley’s

automobile dealerships have rallied to launch

the “REV UP for Hospice” campaign!

The campaign runs from Sept 2 to Dec 31.

Participating dealerships from Windsor to

Middleton have committed to a matching-gift

program that aims to raise $80,000, all for the

hospice and palliative care centre slated to be

built at Valley Regional Hospital. The Hospice

and Palliative Care Centre at Valley Regional

Hospital is the final project to be funded by the

“Our Community Our Health” campaign.

Compiled by Mike Aube




The centre will support patients and families as

they deal with life-limiting illness.

The money raised during the “REV Up for

Hospice” campaign will be counted towards an

ambitious $8 million goal. Over $7.3 million

has been raised, already funding several improvements

at Valley Regional Hospital.

Participating dealers include Best Toyota, Cornwallis

Chevrolet, Connell Motors, Bruce Auto

Group, Kentville Chrysler, Kentville Mazda,

Kentville Nissan, Valley Ford, Valley Volkswagen,

Forbes Kia and Pothier Motors.



If you could walk away from your life and begin

anew, where would you “. . . go? Lila Hope-Simpson What would has a gift for you making do?

the mundane, exceptional.”

Would you plan ahead, or would it be spontaneous?

—A. K. Henderson, author of Lilacs in the Snow.

Lila Hope-Simpson’s novel Stepping Out explores these

questions as the protagonist, Lydia Starr, makes her

way from small-town Nova Scotia to Montreal to start

afresh. But of course, before she can truly find peace

and fulfillment, she discovers

that running away is not

the answer. First she must go

back and face the adversities

that drove her away in

the first


Although this is Hope-Simpson’s

first adult novel,

she is no newcomer to the world of writing. Her

award-winning children’s book

Fiddles: Journey of an

Acadian Mouse (Nimbus 2012). Beautifully illustrated

by well-known local artist Doretta Groenendyk, it tells

the story of the expulsion of the Acadians from Grand

Pré through the eyes of a family of mice who ISBN 978-1-927003-26-8 live in the

Dubois household.

As a long-time columnist for The Kings County Advertiser

& Register, Hope-Simpson wrote the Positive Parenting

columns, focusing on parents and families. These columns and stories were published into

a compilation entitled The Clothesline Collection. Topics range from date rape to toilet training,

vegan meals to child care. A portion of the proceeds of this book will be donated to the IWK

Health Centre Foundation.

These topics came easily for Hope-Simpson, who has a background in Early Childhood Education

and is currently the Director of the Home & Heart Family Day Care Agency, which oversees

approved child-care homes from Hantsport to Middleton. When she’s not working or writing

up a storm, Hope-Simpson can be found walking her dogs, Chester & Bruno, planning her

next trip, sharing coffee with a friend at a local café, rug-hooking, or enjoying the view of the

Valley from the back deck of her Newtonville home, built by her husband, artist-blacksmith Ian

www.herbivorecarnivore.com | By Jesse Gadon & Emily Leeson

We’re here to eat. Emily, the herbivore, will order vegetarian

or vegan & happily taste-test any gluten-free

options. Jesse, the carnivore, will literally eat anything

put before him. Watch out napkins!

There are a lot of small plates in our kitchen. Small unbreakable

plates, largely available in primary colours.

And while they do serve a variety of appetizing fare,

it's usually the sort a toddler greedily enjoys.

Well, tonight that toddler is enjoying some Auntie-time,

and we are off to enjoy some small plates of a

more sophisticated and wondrously adult nature.


Good food begins with the raw ingredients. For Chef

Dave Smart, this means beginning with the seed

catalogues and selecting the best varieties that will be

drawn into his dishes. The small-plate philosophy he

adheres to means that the table is an ever-changing

tableaux of flavour, texture, and sensation. Dave

returns to classical French cuisine for guidance in

technique, but transforms what we may think a dish

to be into something contemporary, imaginative, and


The Scene

The atmosphere is modern and simple. Sleek lines of

the furniture are paired against panels of reclaimed

lumber. The Maître d’ brought us to our table, and

from there we watched the sun set against the dykes.

As it grew dark, the glow from the candle on our

table shared a luminance with the street lights. How

unexpectedly romantic.


Temporary Vacation. This tequila cocktail was sweet

and citrusy and marked with a smoked sea-salt rim. A

great cocktail. Period.

Bob Herman. A delicious cousin of the Old Fashion,

if you will. But the mystery still remains: who is Bob

Herman? We know he likes Bourbon.

1st Course

THE HERBIVORE: Polenta & Goat Cheese Agnolotti &

L’Acadie Vineyards Estate L’Acadie Blanc 2012. Ribbons

of zucchini, sweet roasted cherry tomatoes...warm

and peppery, this agnolotti brought out the bright

nature of the L’Acadie. When executed with careful

forkmanship, every bite paired each sensation with its

counterpart, in a perfect duet.

THE CARNIVORE: Pan Seared Halibut & Domain de

Grand Pré Vintner’s Reserve Muscat 2011. A beautiful

portion of halibut sat within a light but complex lobster

bouillabaisse. The rich broth paired wonderfully

with the notes of citrus and sweetness of the Muscat.

2nd Course

THE HERBIVORE: Faux Pho & Gaspereau Vineyards

Riesling 2011. This course came as a do-it-yourself

kit. Now, when I complete an IKEA dresser, there are

no screws left behind. I’m sort of the same way with

my Faux Pho. All in, this dish was spicy and sweet,

savory and smooth, crisp and supple. The tofu played

beautifully against the light garnishes, while the chilli

Front & Central | 117 Front Street, Wolfville, NS


spice and Reisling were obviously a pairing ordained

by a higher power than my own two hands.

THE CARNIVORE: Mushroom and Barley Risotto &

Luckett Vineyards L’Acadie Blanc 2011. From the soft

texture of the mushroom ragu to the endless pleasure

of beurre noisette cream with truffle oil, notes of citrus

to the “pop” provided by the barley, this dish brought

out the best in all of its ingredients.

3rd Course

THE HERBIVORE: Gnocchi & Blomidon Estate’s Baco

Noir 2012. The kale was the surprising star of this

deep, delicious, maplely mushroom Canadian dish.

Brought out by the earthy Baco Noir and soft cushions

of gnocchi, the kale was set up to be fully appreciated

in all its tones.

THE CARNIVORE: Duck Breast (3oz) & Blomidon Estate’s

Baco Noir 2012. There was a real sense of artistry

behind this dish. Perfectly cooked, the sliced duck

breast was ornamented with savory granola and micro

daikon radish greens, all accompanied by an apple

puree, giving the hakurei turnip and the rest of this

dish a natural sweetness.

4th Course

THE HERBIVORE: Field Berry Consommé. Fresh berries

and tart lemon ice cream sat alongside the mossy

green Matcha Green Tea sponge cake. It was a delightful

feast fit for forest fairies—or one very satisfied


THE CARNIVORE: Dark Chocolate Ganache.

A wonderful finale to the evening. Three scallop-like

nuggets of dark chocolate ganache, mantled by salted

caramel ice cream (made in-house) and transfixed by a

decorative waffle tuile wave. A monument of yum.

A Final Note

With the evening drawing to a close, the Carnivore

asked, as he always tends to do, “One more drink at

the bar?” In this case, we might have: Front & Central

even has a lounge licence now, which means, we

might have even started and ended our evening at the

bar for that matter. But somewhere up the hill, a tiny

toddler is likely waiting for a lullaby and a tuck in bed,

all warmth and sweetness until she wakes up screaming

at 2am. No, for now we’ll just depart, sufficiently

satisfied, sufficiently suffonsified, sufficient sufficed—or

whatever it is you say.

hine Day is a yearly tradition across Canada for many universities. Hundreds of students

Sare deployed into various communities to raise money for Shinerama.

What is Shinerama? It’s the largest post-secondary school fundraiser in Canada and raises

money and awareness for Cystic Fibrosis Research.

This year’s Shine Day was well attended and well supported by students as well as the

community. Shinerama Coordinator Meg Todd says, “A huge thank-you to Wolfville and

surrounding communities for helping Shinerama reach the highest-ever Shine Day total in

Acadia history!” A total of $15,016.36 was raised on Saturday, and that would not have been

possible without the generous donations of individuals from across the Valley and beyond.

Meg has spent numerous hours organizing the campaign and has proven to be hardworking,

dedicated and passionate about this cause. She says, "My hope is that students will remain

excited and continue to advocate for Shinerama for years to come. My hope in coordinating

this campaign for the past two years is that we have raised the bar on awareness in our

community and at Acadia.” She reflects on her position of the past two years: “We have made

Shinerama a success, and become a large contributor to helping find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis.

I have loved coordinating the past two campaigns and I personally want to thank everyone

for making this an amazing day and

making a difference! All students and

community members who took part in

Shine Day should feel proud that they

donated their time and donations to

such an important cause."

Don't forget that every dollar counts

and helps fund the research and

treatment of Cystic Fibrosis. There is

currently no cure, but we will find one!

This year, Shinerama across the nation

will have raised over $1 million for the

research and care of cystic fibrosis.

If you missed us on Shine Day, you can donate online at www.shinerama.ca. Click the donate

at the Shubenacadie Residential School

in Historical Context

“This was the hardest thing I’ve ever written."

Dr. Ian Mosby

SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellow - University of Guelph

20 September 2013 – 7 p.m.

K.C. Irving Auditorium, Acadia University

For more information visit: issacadia.wordpress.com


The Confederacy of Mainland Mi’kmaq

and Acadia University are pleased to

announce Dr. Ian Mosby’s upcoming public

lecture, “Nutrition Research and Human

Experimentation at the Shubenacadie

Residential School in Historical Context”

on Friday, September 20, at 7pm. His public

keynote address will follow a private meeting

from 10-2 with Elders at the Confederacy of

Mainland Mi'kmaq at Millbrook First Nation.

Saturday morning, Dr. Mosby will meet with

the Indigenous Students Society of Acadia

(ISSA) at Welkaqnik, the Aboriginal Gathering

Throughout this past summer, Dr. Mosby's

research into nutrition science, Aboriginal

Speaking Up

Engaging and empowering students in government, with keynote speaker Elizabeth May

The idea for a conference addressing student

empowerment in government regarding

environmental issues sprang out of a

meeting of the Acadia Environmental Society/

Sustainability Office (AESO) last year, where

attendees expressed the desire to plan an event

that would bring students together and empower

them to take action. Young people may often feel

powerless because their voices may not be heard

nor respected among decision-makers. In this day

and age, it is becoming increasingly important

for younger generations to speak up and make it

clear that we have a stake in our future, that we

need to be included in decisions regarding our

environment. But how can we ensure that our

voices are heard at all levels of government, be

they municipal, provincial or federal?

The AESO hopes to provide you with some

answers during a three-day conference on

October 25, 26 and 27, held at Acadia University.

This conference is being made possible through

a joint effort between the AESO and the Atlantic

Youth Environmental Council (AYEC), a newly

formed student network consisting of students

from university campuses across Atlantic Canada

and the New England area of the U.S.A. The

AESO, in cooperation with AYEC, is in the process

of planning a wide variety of interesting activities

on relevant subjects, including environmental

leadership, business and the environment,

greening of campuses, gardening, environmental

problems, waste avoidance, government, and

much more.

There will be opportunities for studentled

workshops, debates and discussions,

problem-solving, connecting with members of

Canada, Dr. Mosby discovered little-known

documents outlining experiments conducted

on Canada's Indigenous population. One of the

testing sites for this program was Shubenacadie

Residential School, here in Nova Scotia. In this

public lecture, Dr. Mosby will focus specifically

on the testing program in Nova Scotia and its

implications for understanding the history of

residential schools in Canada.

government, and a good variety of hands-on and

sit-down activities to choose from.

The keynote speaker for this conference will be

none other than Elizabeth May, leader of the

Green Party of Canada, once executive director

of the Sierra Club of Canada. In the past federal

election in 2011, May became the first member

of the Green Party in Canadian history to be

elected to the House of Commons. She is an

MP for the Saanich-Gulf Islands riding (British

Columbia). May has an extensive background

in environmental activism, environmental law

and politics, and the AESO is thrilled to welcome

such an experienced and successful person to

Wolfville. Elizabeth May’s keynote address is

scheduled for Saturday, October 26, at 7pm

in the Huggins Science Hall. The event will be

open to the public, and will be followed with a

reception in the Garden Room of the KC Irving

Environmental Science Building.

The conference is open to all university and

college students, so stay tuned for more

information! Registration will be opening shortly,

but in the meantime the AESO is looking for

volunteers to assist with planning and logistics.

8 The Grapevine

September 19 - October 3, 2013


Guess what? All grains (white and brown

rice, quinoa, kamut, millet, wheat, etc), all

legumes (beans, lentils, chickpeas, etc), and all

nuts and seeds (almonds, cashews, sunflower

seeds, chia, flax, etc) are all actually SEEDS!

Not everyone knows this, but it’s time you

did: all seeds contain something that keeps

them in a dormant state (i.e., asleep) until

conditions are proper for them to come alive

and grow. Proper conditions are when the

seed has enough water to absorb, causing it to

swell and burst with life, releasing this “something”

that has kept the seed asleep and kept

it from rotting while it waits for water.

This “something” that all seeds (and nuts and

beans and grains) contain, is called an enzyme

inhibitor, and it is a necessary, natural chemical

used by the seed to protect and preserve

itself. When you eat grains, nuts and legumes

without soaking them first, you are absorbing

all the enzyme inhibitors that the seed is releasing,

which inhibits your natural enzymes

in your body, which causes you to not absorb

all the nutrients from the good food you are

eating. If you're not soaking them first, you're

not getting all the nourishment that you

need to, and over time, you are building up a

“block” in your digestive tract, blocking the

absorption of minerals and vitamins from all

other food that you eat!

When we soak our seeds, not only are we

releasing and discarding the harmful enzyme

inhibitors, but we are also bringing the seeds

to life, thereby activating all of their nutrients

and increasing the bio-availability of the vitamins

and minerals that the seed has to offer.

Proper soaking also makes the seeds more

alkaline, even after cooking, since soaking

increases the amount of available calcium. It's

only been in recent years that we've disregarded

the traditional methods of soaking, sprouting,

and fermenting our grains, legumes,

nuts and seeds. Somewhere along the line we

forgot or got lazy, and our health has suffered

for it.

Many people today have digestive trouble

when eating whole grains, beans and raw nuts,

and even some have allergies to these nutritious

foods. The main reason for this, along

with the large-scale use of harmful toxins on

all non-organic foods, is that the grains/nuts/

beans have not been soaked. We need to start

soaking, my friends, the info is here, the time

is now, So SOAK, SOAK, SOAK.

There's why.

Here's how: Use warm water to soak your

seeds, and leave them at room temperature

for the required soaking time, loosely covered

(with a cloth, plate, or loose lid).

For seeds that require a longer soaking time

(8-12 hours), adding 1-2 tbsp of lemon juice

or vinegar to your water discourages spoilage

from unfriendly bacteria.

For non-vegans, 1-2 tbsp of a cultured natural

product like yogurt, kefir, whey or buttermilk

are beneficial to the soaking process, as the

healthy, live lactobacillus bacteria in these

cultures begins to break down the proteins in

the seeds, making them even easier to digest

and absorb nutrients from.

Nuts need to be raw in order to revive and

activate them. No sense in soaking a dead

roasted nut.

As always, organic is best for the body/mind/


Always drain the water from your seeds after

soaking and rinse well. If you are cooking the

seeds, add fresh water and cook as usual.

The soaking time for seeds depends mostly

on the density of the seed, usually meaning

the denser the seed, the longer the soak, with

some exceptions.

8-12 hour soak : Almonds, Barley, Buckwheat

Berries, all Beans, Chickpeas, Flax,

Kamut Berries, Lentils, Millet, Whole Oats,

Pumpkin Seeds, Sesame Seeds, Rye, Wheat


2-4 Hour Soak : Cashews, Hazelnuts, Quinoa,

Pecans, Sunflower Seeds, Walnuts

If you want to go the next step and sprout

your seeds, and not just activate and remove

the enzyme inhibitors, you will need to soak

them longer. Usually a good rule is to soak the

seeds overnight or for a full 24 hours, drain

the water, rinse well, and leave moist and uncovered

(or under a cloth), rinsing 2-4 times

a day, until a sprout is visible, letting it grow

to your desired length before thanking the

universe and enjoying your little delicacies.

Yes, it takes a little longer to get a soaking

routine working for you in your life. It takes

planning your meals a day (or half a day) in

advance, and it means absorbing all available

nutrients and treating your body and the

foods you put into it with the respect and consciousness

that you all deserve!! Hooray !!

Here they come!

Landmark East students are heading out to

neighbourhoods in Wolfville and surrounding

communities collecting sponsor dollars for

their 11 th Annual Walkathon, the school’s signature

fall fundraiser in support of the Landmark

East Student Bursary Fund. The young

people, along with parents, alumni, staff and

board members, will be canvassing throughout

September to help build the Landmark East

Student Bursary Fund.

This year the Johnson Scholarship Foundation

will match 50 cents on every dollar raised at

the event. The Florida-based Foundation has

been a major benefactor of the school since

2000, investing over $1.65 million in bursary

funding to assist Landmark East families with

demonstrated financial need. The Johnson

partnership also incorporated matching grants

to boost local fundraising and has contributed

$130,000 of the more than $387,000 raised

over the past decade through the Walkathon


The need for bursary funding is ever-present

and growing every year,” says Landmark East

Headmaster Peter Coll. “Families, particularly

from the local area, are struggling to meet the

financial commitment of tuition payments.

Very often the availability of a bursary is the

deciding factor on whether or not a child can

attend Landmark East. The Valley community

has been extremely generous over the

years, donating to our Walkathon, and many

promising students have benefitted from that

support. “

This year’s supervised neighbourhood sponsor

drive takes place from 6:30 to 8 pm throughout

September. It provides an opportunity for students

to participate in the fundraising process

as a community-service project. Many of these

volunteers are international students. They are

brand new to the school, and often this is their

first encounter with the Wolfville community.

Canvassing also takes place in surrounding

communities such as Kentville, Canning, Port

Williams, Newport, New Minas, and Windsor,

as day students, alumni, staff, board members

and their families get involved as ambassadors

for the cause. Online giving is also now

an option through the school website: www.


Left to Right : Ben Kroker, Rebecca Holleman, Jaylene Hubley, Richard Adams, Delila Hubley, Wesley

Smith, Marika Hubley. Front-row elementary students: Emma Schofield, Mackenzie Routledge

This year the Walkathon will take place on

Sunday, Sept 29, from 1-5pm. Participants

of all ages will gather on campus to make the

5-kilometre afternoon hike through town and

the neighbouring dyke lands. The walk will

be followed by an informal celebration at the

school to recognize volunteer efforts. Local

merchants have donated refreshments, awards,

and incentive prizes.

Landmark East is Canada’s independent day

and boarding school for students with learning

differences. The school, located on Main Street

in Wolfville, was established in 1979 and offers

individualized programs developed to meet

unique learning abilities for students aged 8 to

The Who s Who



Sometimes a Who’s

Who is just a few steps

from my front door…

literally! Will Cooper

appeared at my yard sale last

year on Chestnut Ave to buy

things “to distract the kids”

while he moved into his new

house, just a few doors down.

And now Will’s my newest

Who’s Who!

Will Cooper was born in England

but grew up mostly in

Canada, first in rural Manitoba

and then Nova Scotia.

Moving around and travelling

became two of Will’s biggest

“hobbies”. He’s lived in Sierra

Leone, France, South Korea,

New Zealand and Australia.

After six years in New Zealand,

Will, his wife Jen, and

their two sons, Forest and Asa, moved back

to Nova Scotia. Oh, and I can’t forget their

bulldog-lab mix Kaia, who loves Wolfville just

as much as Will and his family. Will says, “It

seemed like a good place to raise our boys:

small, alternative, attractive, close to Halifax

and full of friendly people.”

Will has had a variety of jobs. He’s worked as

a travel advisor, a phlebotomist, a librarian,

an ESL teacher and an environmental studies

lecturer, amongst other things. Currently (no

pun intended), Will is working as an electrical

apprentice, which he finds interesting and

(when he’s not crawling around in a scorching-hot,

dusty attic) practical. However, Will’s

real passion is art. His dream is to be able

to do art full-time—or perhaps half-time,

so that he can spend the other half with his

wonderful family.

Last April, Will began experimenting with a

new style of art, where he draws images onto

large sheets of wood, cuts them out with a

scroll saw, sands them and then paints each

piece of the image with a solid color. He

then varnishes and glues all the pieces back

together on a backboard, like a huge painted

jigsaw puzzle, and the results are incredible.

They have turned into a brilliant and vibrant

collection of scenes inspired by the Nova Scotian

landscapes we’ve all grown to love. Now

YOU can see Will’s wonderful folk-art flavour

at the Wolfville Library, where his art is being

displayed until September 30. And Jen has

helped Will create a website to promote his

art, www.willcooperart.com. Check it out!

Will says,“I’ve been receiving a lot of positive

feedback about my work, and half of the

pieces I’ve made have already sold and I have

just been commissioned to do a new piece, so

I am doing what I love and it’s paying off.”

In his spare time, which comes sporadically,

Will enjoys building, renovating, and spending

time with his boys. When the in-laws look

after the kids, he loves to go swimming at

Lumsden pond and have café time with Jen.

Will loves to write as well, and has written

many newspaper articles, worked as an editor,

and written a fantasy-novel manuscript

and several children’s book manuscripts,

including a finalist in the Atlantic Writing

Competition’s children’s book category. And

as if he wasn’t talented enough with his

painting, Will also plays guitar and piano,

and recently won a folk-song competition in

New Zealand!

But what Will wants most are to be a professional

artist and to live on an off-the-grid

farm where he can build forts in the woods

with his kids and grow vegetables to support

his vegan lifestyle. He says “I feel fortunate

to be part of such a cohesive and supportive

community where there are so many great

opportunities for artists. I am particularly

grateful to the library for letting me display

my work.”

I wish you all the best with your many

talents, Will. Your art is fresh and fun, and

I hope people take the time to explore it.

Your appreciation for the environment is

inspirational. I applaud you for using your

surroundings to create beautiful art and for

sharing with your neighbours, both right

next door and far away! Good luck, neighbour!

Devonian Coast Wineries has announced

that it is acquiring Muir Murray Estate

Winery in Wolfville. Devonian Coast

Wineries currently owns and operates the

award-winning wineries Jost Vineyards on

the North Shore and Gaspereau Vineyards in

the Annapolis Valley. The transaction is due to

close on September 30.

“We are delighted to add this third location

to our winery operations,” says Carl Sparkes,

President and owner of Devonian Coast Wineries.

“Being the closest winery to downtown

Wolfville offers a great opportunity to build a

premium winery experience here in Atlantic


For the time being, the focus will remain on

vineyard development, while the winery and

wine shop will close temporarily for renovations

and improvements. The operation will

then reopen in 2014 as a new winery under a

new name.

“Our plan is to create new wines and a new

brand to fit in the ultra premium category,

which is an important part of Devonian’s

growth strategy,” says Sparkes. He adds, “This

location allows us to do something really

special in the Valley so that wine lovers will

get to enjoy new and different wine styles for

this region.”

This is one of the most exciting times in Nova

Scotia’s 30-year wine journey, and Devonian

Coast is proud to be a part of the phenomenal

growth of the industry. With several new

wineries and each existing winery placing

emphasis on quality and carving out their

own unique offerings, consumers can expect

Nova Scotia wines to continue to evolve to

world class.

“It’s here where the elements perfectly align”

As for this new acquisition, the journey is just

Léon Millot is a red variety that was created in

1911 in Alsace by Eugène Kuhlmann (yes, he

created Lucie Kuhlmann too!). The grape was

named after the winemaker at the Oberlin

Institute in Alsace. With our short growing

season we grow Léon Millot because it ripens

early and has high resistance against fungal

diseases. The skins of these very small berries

are a beautiful blueberry colour, and the tiny

clusters weigh just around 90 grams each! It

produces a lighter wine that can be compared

to the style of Pinot Noir. Almost all the local

wineries work with the Léon Millot grape. It’s

great to taste them from winery to winery,

as the winemakers use different techniques

in fermentation or aging, so you’ll see

September 19 - October 3, 2013

Horoscopes for the week

of September 19th

Copyright 2013 Rob Brezsny


ARIES (March 21-April 19): "If Taylor Swift is

going to have six breakups a year," observed

comedian Bill Maher, "she needs to write

a new song entitled 'Maybe It's Me.'" He

was referring to Swift's habit of using her

romantic misadventures to stimulate her

lyric-writing creativity. With that as your

prompt, Aries, I'll ask you to do some soulsearching

about your own intimacy issues.

How have you contributed to the problems

you've had in getting the love and care

you want? What unconscious behavior or

conditioned responses have undermined your

romantic satisfaction, and what could you do

to transform them? The next eight weeks will

be prime time to revolutionize your approach

to relationships.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Philosopher

Alan Watts used to talk about how the whole

world is wiggling all the time. Clouds, trees,

sky, water, human beings: Everything's

constantly shimmying and jiggling and

waggling. One of our problems, Watts said, is

that we're "always trying to straighten things

out." We feel nagging urges to deny or cover

up or eliminate the wiggling. "Be orderly,"

we command reality. "Be neat and composed

and predictable." But reality never obeys. It's

forever doing what it does best: flickering

and fluctuating and flowing. In accordance

with astrological omens, Taurus, I encourage

you to rebel against any natural tendencies

you might have to fight the eternal wiggle.

Instead, celebrate it. Rejoice in it. Align

yourself with it.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Author Elaine

Scarry defines "the basic impulse underlying

education" as follows: the "willingness to

continually revise one's own location in

order to place oneself in the path of beauty."

Consider making this your modus operandi

in the coming weeks, Gemini. Always be on

the lookout for signs that beauty is near. Do

research to find out where beauty might be

hiding and where beauty is ripening. Learn all

you can about what kinds of conditions attract

beauty, and then create those conditions.

Finally, hang around people who are often

surrounded by beauty. This approach will be

an excellent way to further your education.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): "Life is either

always a tight-rope or a feather bed. Give

me the tight-rope." So declared writer Edith

Wharton. But she was an Aquarius, and more

temperamentally suited to the tight-rope.

Many of you Cancerians, on the other hand,

prefer to emphasize the feather-bed mode.

I suspect that in the next nine months,

however, you will be willing and even eager

to spend more time on the tight-rope than

is customary for you. To get primed for the

excitement, I suggest you revel in some

intense feather-bed action in the coming

weeks. Charge up your internal batteries with

an extra-special deluxe regimen of sweet selfcare.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Half of a truth is

better than no truth at all, right? Wrong! If

you latch on to the partially accurate story,

you may stop looking for the rest of the story.

And then you're liable to make a premature

decision based on insufficient data. The better

alternative is to reject the partially accurate

story and be willing to wait around in the dark

until the complete revelation comes. That may

be uncomfortable for a while. But when the

full truth finally straggles in, you will be very

glad you didn't jump to unripe conclusions.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A Chinese

entrepreneur named Nin Nan dreamed up

a unique way to generate capital: He sold

dead mosquitoes online for a dollar apiece,

advertising them as useful for scientific

research and decoration. Within two days,

he received 10,000 orders. Let's make him

your patron saint and role model for the

next few weeks, Virgo. May he inspire you to

come up with novel ways to stimulate your

cash flow. The planetary omens suggest that

your originality is more likely than usual to

generate concrete rewards.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): "The most

important thing is to find out what the most

important thing is," wrote Shunryu Suzuki

in his book Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind. That's

your assignment for the next three weeks.

Do whatever it takes to find out beyond any

doubt what the most important thing is.

Meditate naked an hour a day. Go on long

walks in the wildest places you know. Convene

intense conversations about yourself with the

people who know you best. Create and sign

a contract with yourself in which you vow to

identify the experience you want more than

any other experience on earth. No waffling

allowed, Libra. What is the single most

important thing?

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Sometime in

the next nine months you may feel moved to

embark on an adventure that will transform

the way you understand reality. Maybe you

will choose to make a pilgrimage to a sacred

sanctuary or wander further away from your

familiar comforts than you ever have before.

Right now is an excellent time to brainstorm

about the possibilities. If you don't feel ready

to actually begin your quest, at least formulate

a master plan for the magic moment when

you will be ripe.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): In the

indigenous culture of Hawaii, "mana" refers

to a spiritual power that may abide in people,

objects, and natural locations. You can

acquire more of it by acting with integrity

and excellence, but you might lose some of it

if your actions are careless or unfocused. For

instance, a healer who does a mediocre job

of curing her patients could lose the mana

that made her a healer in the first place. I

believe that similar principles hold true for

non-Hawaiians. All of us have an ever-shifting

relationship with the primal life force. What's

the current state of your own personal supply,

Sagittarius? It's time to make sure you're

taking full advantage of the mana you have

been blessed with. Your motto: "Use it or lose


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Have you

been getting enough? I doubt it. I think you

should sneak a peek into the hiding place

where your insatiable cravings are stored.

If you're brave enough, also take a look at

your impossible demands and your unruly

obsessions and your suppressed miracles.

Please note: I'm not suggesting that you

immediately unleash them all; I don't mean

you should impulsively instigate an adventure

that could possibly quench your ravenous

yearnings. But I do believe you will benefit

from becoming better acquainted with them.

You could develop a more honest relationship,

which would ultimately make them more


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don't tape

your thumbs to your hands and stalk around

pretending to be a dinosaur. Don't poke

three holes in a large plastic garbage bag and

wear it as a tunic while imagining that you

are a feudal serf in a post-apocalyptic, sci-fi

dystopia. Don't use a felt-tip marker to draw

corporate logos on your face to show everyone

what brands of consumer goods you love. To

be clear: I would love you to be extravagantly

creative. I hope you will use your imagination

in novel ways as you have fun playing with

experimental scenarios. But please exercise

a modicum of discernment as you wander

way outside the box. Be at least 20 percent


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): "Take a lover

who looks at you like maybe you are magic,"

says the poet Marty McConnell. That's good

advice, Pisces -- not just in regards to your

intimate relationships, but about all your

other alliances, too. If you're seeking a friend

or consultant or business partner or jogging

companion or new pet, show a preference

for those creatures who look at you like

maybe you are magic. You always need to

be appreciated for the sweet mystery and

catalytic mojo you bring to your partnerships,

but you especially need that acknowledgment

MIKE Uncorked:



Since I was 16, I have

taken three sick days

off from work: two for food

poisoning and one for a

stress headache from my

oldest nephew Ben’s first

day of big school (Uncle

Mike was worried!). I am

just never sick!

Colds and sniffles are rare

to minimal, headaches

almost non-existent, no flu,

no allergies, no aches, pains

or broken bones or genetic

diseases. I am not saying I

am Superman, but I am a

rare case of a person who’s

just never ill. I believe it’s because when I was

a kid, my older sisters use to feed me lots of

dirt and rare exterior findings, so my immune

system has become a bit of a brick wall. I also

don’t lather myself with all those ridiculous

sanitizers, so my body can absorb and process

a bit of filth and know how to handle it.

But being that person doesn’t mean I don’t

take care of myself. I try to eat right, I exercise,

I drink lots of water and I am careful

about the things around me that could make

me sick. I also have an open mind and have

experimented with many alternative medicines

(mostly teas and herbs) to be proactive

against upcoming cold and flu seasons.

A few Grapevines back, I wrote a Who’s Who

on a wonderful lady named Holly Silver. Holly

owns and operates the Magical Closet in

Kentville and is also one of the chief coordinators

for the Holistic and Wellness Expo at the

Greenwich Fire Hall on Saturday, October 5,

from 9:30am-5pm. I have never attended the

Expo, but, now in its third year, it has become

an incredible event that I cannot wait to attend.

Just seeing the variety of products and

specialists makes the Holistic and Wellness

Expo well worth the $3 admission fee.

health and wellness.

According to the holistic

medicine philosophy, one

can achieve optimal health

by gaining proper balance

in life.

Holistic medicine practitioners

believe that the

whole person is made up of

interdependent parts, and

if one part is not working

properly, all the other parts

will be affected. In this way,

if people have imbalances

(physical, emotional, or

spiritual) in their lives, it

can negatively affect their

A holistic doctor may use all forms of

health care, from conventional medication

to alternative therapies, to treat a patient.

For example, when a person suffering from

headaches pays a visit to a holistic doctor,

instead of walking out solely with medications,

the doctor will likely take a look at all

the potential factors that may be causing

the person's headaches, such as other health

problems, diet and sleep habits, stress and

personal problems, and preferred spiritual

practices. The treatment plan may involve

drugs to relieve symptoms, but also lifestyle

modifications to help prevent the headaches

from reccurring.

At Holly’s Expo, you will find everything from

Chinese massage, hypnotherapy, psychics,

palm readers, and reflexology and Reiki practitioners

right up to chiropractors and Indian

head massage, body-care and back-support

products, gemstone jewelry, gothic glass, tarot

readings, acupuncture, and herbal-remedy

workshops. You’ll also have the opportunity

to meet many accomplished authors who have

19 The Grapevine

September 19 - October 3, 2013


Opened Saturday, September 14, at Harvest Gallery in Wolfville.

Artist Lynda Shagalan says that “Seeing

Red” was an idea that figured prominently

during her recent trip to China. “Red is a

colour deeply imbued with symbolism in the

Chinese culture, and although I used it purely

intuitively, these paintings express something

about my experience of this ancient culture.”

Figuratively, she was attracted to the graphic

quality and flow of the pictograms and calligraphy.

Even the branches of the twisted trees

in the gardens, leafless in early spring, seemed

to communicate in this exotic language.

Some of the pieces in the exhibition contain

a square hole in the center. In the photo

montages, the idea began as a way to consider

a kind of pervasive, circular continuity in all

things. In China, an ancient temple tucked

between a Starbucks and a contemporary

hotel suggested a portal into another century

and a passageway to the “other.” In the center

of the paper pieces, she has incorporated

small papers, distributed in the temples,

which are burned to carry prayers to loved

ones.“I thought of them as small prayers in

themselves, carrying my thoughts to another

realm.” Although some of the forms and ideas

for this show were precipitated by her trip

to China, the work contains a very strong

personal thread for Lynda that continues to

unravel and evolve in places familiar and not

so familiar.

Lynda grew up in Vancouver. She began her

art education by studying weaving, fibre arts,

pottery, drawing and painting, completing a

craft diploma at Capilano College in North

Vancouver. In 1980 she moved to Halifax to

attend the Nova Scotia College of Art. She

currently works out of her home studio/

gallery and teaches art at the Sacred Heart

School of Halifax on a part-time basis. She

has exhibited her work across Canada, and

her paintings can be found in many private

and public collections. Lynda is represented in

Wolfville at Harvest Gallery and in Halifax at

the AGNS Art Sales and Rental Gallery.

Gaspereau Press has just released Petitot, a new novel by Susan Haley.

Fresh out of college and reeling from the

failure of a marriage that had barely even

begun, Marcus takes a teaching job in a tiny

northern-Canadian native community. While

struggling to grasp his own predicament,

Marcus finds himself entangled in much

larger community tragedies: the suicide of

an aging priest and the death of two young

students from exposure. But it is his discovery

of the writings of Émile Petitot, a controversial

19th-century missionary Oblate priest,

linguist and ‘explorer,’ that finally threatens to

unhinge Marcus, launching him on an obsessive

quest for answers.

In this novel, Susan Haley explores the troubled

life and dubious claims of Father Petitot,

whose 15 years beneath the Arctic Circle were

punctuated by scandal, delusional behaviour

and episodes of outright madness and

paranoia—problems that caused him to be

shuffled from mission to mission, temporarily

excommunicated, and even forcibly hospitalized

by the bishop. Haley’s binocular approach

ruptures the normal historical perspective as

she attempts to depict Petitot in all his complexity,


through the

eyes of his

Inuit and

Cree contemporaries

and through

those of

Marcus, who

sifts through

the written

records of

one man’s

life in search

for the truth

about us all.

Susan Haley’s first two novels, A Nest of Singing

Birds and Getting Married in Buffalo Jump,

were made into movies for CBC-TV. Her recent

novels include The Complaints Department,

Maggie’s Family and The Murder of Medicine

Bear. Haley and her partner ran a charter

airline in Fort Norman, Northwest Territories,

for 15 years. She now lives in Black River,

Nova Scotia.
