Gorgeous, haunting Canadian folk song! (cover by @kayclarity)

Totally sad; totally lovely. The Canadian spirit, friendly and funny as it is, is at core one of deep melancholy, particularly in relation to our bone-chilling, life-threatening winters.

I hope you enjoy this one. I loved singing it.

Lyrics below.

Okay, PS: where do I find my passwords page now? Things have changed since I was away a lot this year!

Frobisher Bay, written by James Gordon

Cold is the Arctic Sea
Far are your arms from me
Long will this winter be
Frozen in Frobisher Bay
Frozen in Frobisher Bay

"One more whale," our captain cried
"One more whale and well beat the ice."
But the winter star was in the sky
The seas were rough; the winds were high.

Deep were the crashing waves
That tore our whaler's mast away
And dark are these sunless days
Waiting for the ice to break.

Strange is the whaler's fate
To be saved from the raging waves
Only to waste away
Frozen in this lonely grave.

As for passwords, currently you can't log in with power Master Password on https://steemit.com site, instead you should go to https://steemitwallet.com to get your individual keys, well suited for different activities. Private Posting Key is one that should be used to log in on Steemit site, for day-to-day activities such as posting, commenting, upvoting. Active Private Key should be used only on a wallet site, for financial related operations, witness votings, proposal votings etc.
Some of the changes were outlined here: /@steemitblog/social-condenser-is-live

If you have any more question don't hesitate to ask.

Thank you! I'm so glad you enjoyed it!

Somehow I still can't find them - I used to be able to find my way to a page that would list some of them (obviously not all) and just can't seem to find that page yet. I'll check again but I do feel like I've checked everywhere. But I also haven't actually signed into the wallet yet - maybe that's why?

Yes, that's why. Keys can be revealed only when using Master Password, and Master Password can't be used (well, shouldn't at least) outside of secure wallet.

Right! Okay! thank you :)
