So who else is glad to see the back of 2018? It wasn't the easiest of times... but the beginning of a new year is always the perfect reason for a fresh slate. (Phew!)

Last December, we took a trip to the Yukon. To say it was inspirational would be an understatement. There's something about the starkness of frost that is invigorating. I felt the same rejuvenation a few years prior on a visit to Mongolia in the dead of winter. It was like rediscovering magic.

Nature holds all the universe's secrets - after snow, comes the Spring. The cycle of life and all that.

This is the story of our trip to the Yukon in Northern Canada, the people we met... the choices they made... the way they live. I revisit it often because it has a way of uplifting my spirits. Hopefully, this recording - in some small way - can do the same for you.

Find a comfy spot, shut your eyes, and let a cup of hot cocoa cool beside you as you listen... smiley

Here's to the wonder of a new year.

Here's to new beginnings.

With all my best wishes.

Plus - the sorrows and surprises along the way.

How DELAMAR unintentionally managed to speak for a generation... and take it all in stride.
