Last night I put together my first Creative Lounge. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do. I was shaking, I was so nervous. But I swallowed my uncertainty, set up a little stage, prepared dramatic readings of Keats and Shakespeare, bought lots of goodies, and invited anyone I knew who created art. The result was one of the most beautiful lantern lit evenings under the stars I’ve ever had. People brought art, music, stories, little projects, scenes…we bared our souls and lit each other’s hearts! Brian wrote a song inspired by one of my paintings, Abbie did my portrait, people were brave and discussed their artistic dreams…I can’t wait until the next one. Hopefully one a season… John Donne in the fall? Dickens and carols at Christmas? Encore!!
