Peggy Quotes

Candlelight Service and Concert at Springhill, Nova Scotia 2008

You are one great lady m'dear, with a very big heart - and one helluva entertainer to boot. To just say thank you seems terribly insufficient...but thank you, from my heart to yours. I shall never forget those two days in October, and the light cast by your generosity of spirit.  Jack MacAndrew

Peggy Quotes 2

In a world where stars can fade by age 25, it is great to review an album by a lady approaching her 70th birthday who has entertained and enlightened us for half a century. I believe that the second part of that accolade is the more important in assessing this diva of folk. Her songs always entertain but by making us think she achieves her greatest hold.

November 11 is a signal day. I'm told I have breast cancer. I'm strangely unsettled. The world looks different, almost as if I am not in it. When I go outside the world seems noisy, chaotic ... I want to climb back into my Paul Gore Street shell. I've known so many people who have died from cancer, so many cancer 'survivors'. On November 25 I had a lumpectomy and as far as I'm concerned I no longer have cancer. I turned down the radiation, the Tamoxifen, and have gone onto a really strict nutritional and supplement regime. Have lost 18 pounds voluntarily and am happy as a clam. Funny saying that ... are clams happy? Oh ... I also have osteopenia. Severe osteoporosis. Clams probably don't get that or any of the other ailments I have.
