First of all, the new art exhibit – Mystical Spring with Xanthe Firehawk is open and enjoying visitors. See the previous posting for details, and pop on over to enjoy! We are so pleased to host Xanthe and encourage you to visit at Côte de la Mer Galerie – and the Ivy Tower as well – to enjoy Xanthe‘s work. I also want to remind everyone to please use the Guest Book on the centre table to leave a note for Xanthe or for us. Your comments mean the world and we want to hear about your experience of the art – and everything else here. Thank you!
And so…we enjoyed the readings on Tuesday at The Magic Tree. Poet Laureate Russell Eponym was in fine form and he offered us the conclusion of Rumer Godden’s The Diddakoi – a marvelous tale, well read over several weeks. Kizzy’s adventures were sometimes tense and sometimes truly delightful – but always entertaining and inspiring.
My short reading of some springtime poems brought me a lot of joy. Sharing some of my in-world photography and photographs by other artists to depict the poems was very enjoyable for me and – I dare say – for our guests! Reading William Butler Yeats’ beautiful The Ballad of Wandering Aengus was sheer pleasure.
Caledonia Skytower absolutely outdid herself by sharing her new writing. Inspired by her experiences at Fantasy Faire as director of the annual LitFest series of literary events, the pieces are fanciful and serious. She shared two poems in honour of friends who valiantly fought cancer that touched our hearts. This was a very special reading, and we look forward to hearing more!
Æon brought us another of Robert Sheckley’s sci-fi stories – this time, a sardonic one that thrilled. Demons was rather fun – in an odd sort of way – and he dressed the part, wings and all! We surely enjoyed the deft reading!
And so, on we go in a busy week! Have a good one, friends!
