Through SomeAre Solstice, Janina shares photos, philosophy, music, and poetry from the Northern lands, representing renewal of the human spirit through connection with nature and the "Peace".

*Poetry Writing Workshops - offered to any who are interested - schools, Professional Development, team building...

**Global connections and sharing vision with members of the Kubasonics, Tyr, and  Les Bucherons, are exciting opportunities for Janina... awesome chances to share in the preservation and progress of aspects of our ancestral roots and our Canadian Heritage into contemporary times and beyond... a privilege and an honor... leaving the legacy...

Recent Performances of SomeAre Solstice:

Vaer Deg Selv (Be Yourself) was recently performed at the Sons of Norway 45th Anniversary where the Lodge hosted a visit from International President, Ted Fosberg. A collection of Norwegian traditional costumes were worn by many of the guests, a host of wonderful Norwegian food was offered, and a good time was had by all in attendance. Janina played the cedar flute, and narrated the saga of Vaer Deg Selv throughout her slide show, whilst guitarist, Ian Smith, accompanied.

Janina continues to steadily refine her photos and text for recording, publishing, and performance of future stages of Vaer Deg Selv and her other saga style poems.
