Inspiration from south of the Mason-Dixon line

We often go to Kingston (Ontario) to get away from our surroundings. I could carry on about the many reasons that make Kingston the great escape.

During one of our getaway weekends last September, we saw a performance by Sheesham and Lotus. They seem to live the period of history when the railway was the iron horse, connecting communities in a way that had never been thought possible. They play music of the era dressed in clothes that make it seem they jumped off a box car mere moments before setting up to perform.

My approach to digital hinges on the integration of established and emerging ways to communicate, connect and convert. So, it’s great to haul this video out once in a while to refocus and inspire me.
