SANDPOINT — It’s hard to believe that this two-page Arts & Entertainment calendar has been a mainstay of the Thursday paper for the past three-and-a-half years. Today’s lineup marks my final entry in a weekly ritual I have richly enjoyed. One of my favorite aspects of the calendar gig has been when folks tell me they use it to plan their weekend activities — what a compliment!

Just as my own artistic endeavors have pulled me away from my much beloved Sunday feature articles, they now tug at my sleeve to pry me off of the arts and entertainment beat. I feel entirely fortunate to have these new opportunities as a performer and I move on with a spirit of gratitude. My time will be spent loving on our kids, acting goofy with grandchildren and making music with my lovely Tamara in Bridges Home, my pal Dave Hussey in the Paranormal Daves and my delightfully eccentric friend Fiddlin’ Red Simpson in the Risky Gents.

Thanks, my friends, for sharing this ride together and kudos to the Daily Bee for investing this weekly news space in our vibrant arts scene.

Ours is a unique and marvelous situation — we live in paradise and are blessed with the joys of small town life, while, at the same time, benefiting from a cultural scene that rivals many, much larger locales. If there’s magic involved in that rare equation, it’s the magic brought to it by the people who live here — the countless denizens of the arts who keep it alive and well. Keep up the good work!

Peace and love,

Dave
