Okay, last one for today. I'm pretty sure I went to this concert with my friend Jeff Mettlewsky. I was in my first year of music school, and had somehow discovered Philip Glass' music and fallen in LOVE. I don't know how we decided to go together (could be a nerdy music student thing 😉), but I'm glad we did. I can still recall how much I loved it. #mjsayshellofromYVR
I didn't keep this record up during my whole 5 years of uni, but I'll never forget being floored by these marks. My first semester at Capilano College was tough, and at the time I couldn't see this as the kind of affirmation that would result in a release of anxiety. I can now. I still expect perfection from some deep place in my heart, but I'm learning to root that out because it's far too heavy a burden. Still proud of my 4.22 GPA though. I definitely "found my calling" to some degree in music school. #mjsayshellofromYVR
Circa the early 1990s. Knee deep in ministry, children, complicated church politics, adjusting to life on the coast (away from prairie home) - two young adventurers living life with grace, faith, hope, and love. #mjsayshellofromYVR
Written on the back of this photo: "Jean & Leon Appenheimer (pictured here) were married in this house, Dec 21, 1938. A Kiss to build a dream on!
Will Vance built it, son John Vance took it apart. Remnants of Tom Vance home, Bethune farm. " ❤ Finding the sweetness of my grandparents' love for each other. #mjsayshellofromYVR
