Outdoors and socially distanced - Free

Hi friends,

The last time I wrote, there was a layer of snow on the ground, competing for space with the beginnings of bright colors popping up from the dirt. Weeks later, there is green almost everywhere and it’s warm enough to break out the summer attire!

This spring feels weird. I’ve been looking forward to it for months, but now that it’s here, I’m both excited and unsure of how to proceed with whom, and how, I spend my time.

Part of this spring will be thinking about the pieces of my pre-COVID life, and stitching some parts back together, and seeing what fits where, or if it still fits all? It will be about mending the pieces in myself, my community, and in society that are frayed. 

Please join me on Saturday, April 17th, at 2 pm, for the performance of “The Opposite of Hate is Mending”. Through music, dance, and an installation, we will contemplate what it means to be together again, although differently than before. See below for details on attendance.

Also, please take a moment to join me “Over Dinner” and enjoy the dinner conversation I had with Megan Humphrey in early March about where we are in the pandemic, and how creativity is part of how we deal with it all.

Be safe, be well.
