2016 December 23

Email for more information!no COOKING tonight

I have been without power several times lately.  Between wildfires & 50-80mph winds, I have had to rethink a lot of meals.   While it is an occasional inconvenience for me, it is the reality of dinner for a lot of people every day of the year.  So this year, enjoy your holiday meal with gratitude & remember to find a way to help where you can, when you can, EVERY day of the year, not just on holidays.  This Call is inspired by the David Lang’s Pultizer Prize winning “The Little Match Girl Passion”, based on the Hans Christen Anderson story.  Be inspired…

Check out this Call for Entries from Lycoming College (Williamsport, PA) together with Fiona & Christopher Jackson for The Match Girl Art Show.  There is no link to this show online.  You can find the email address is at the end of the post.
