Excerpt: Bygone Days – Folklore, Traditions & Fingernails, by Reginald “Dutch” Thompson

by

Better known as “Dutch”— Reginald Thompson is a multi-faceted storyteller with unforgettable voices—those of Roy from Murray Harbour North, Adelaide from Bunbury, Gus from Chepstow, and countless others. He tells the stories of the Bygone days in Prince Edward Island [sometimes NS, too], that, without Dutch’s talent and care, might be remembered only by family and close friends or lost altogether.

The heart of home

by

Home. The word conjures up vivid images and, oftentimes, conflicting emotions. We may be anxious to leave home or long to return. It might be a particular house, neighbourhood or town. It could evoke memories of boisterous family gatherings or of a quiet, cosy place to find peace and solitude. Home means different things to different people while still being a concept that resonates in some way with everyone.
