Owlkat Canadian folk icon Vera Johnson (119* d) RE: Canadian folk icon Vera Johnson 08 Apr 07

Hi y'all,
I haven't been here for ages because of university and graduation (you don't have to be crazy to do this, but it helps) but I'm very glad I dropped in today.
I remember Vera Johnson playing and I saw her on at least a couple of occasions. She glowed with warmth and humour, and she never stopped smiling. If I think a little bit more I might remember when the shows happened. Nonetheless, discovering this thread has been a very touching and happy surprise. I've seen my share of folk legends, and thinking about her now, I remember feeling that we were simply in someone's living room, surrounded by friends, and listening to a favourite and eccentric aunt.
Thank you for starting this thread.
And now, I have to go back to finishing my women's studies research paper on women in prison and institutional and social changes from the second to the third wave.
