|TRADEMARKS! DO NOT TRESPASS
WITHOUT WRITTEN PERMISSION!
Sometimes you may not even realize you are
trampling on someone else's property. The
Chapel at Callaway? A famous movie star?
Elvis?? Gone With the Wind? Dangerous
territory! The Lone Cyprus at Pebble Beach?
|SHELTERING IN PLACE is now something we all share - those of us in critical
jobs continue to work, taking risks the rest of us at home do not have to face.
As as "retired" nurse I understand both situations. What I do NOT
understand is those who fail to see the seriousness of the situation even as
the death toll rises. I am tired of hearing "hang in there" and "we're all in this
together", however true that may be. But, listening to that is a small price to
pay to survive this mess.
If you are at home on the verge of boredom, find something to do! Read a
book (on line if you must), work on your art, try something new. (My personal
challenge is learning to use an iPhone I just bought.) I am working to finish
some paintings I abandoned last fall.
To those who have lost or been furloughed from jobs you sorely need, check
the community resources available for possible assistance. If you can help,
speak up! LOIS
|THIS YEAR'S ART SHOW is still up in the air, seeking a non-profit
sponsor, and a location. The site of the last show flooded during a rain,
and is not a good bet to use again. If we have the show this year, it will
still be on the 3rd Saturday of October, though another event close to that
time may interfere. We will keep you posted! Arts on the River ®

|WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER...?
We hear that a lot these days, but unfortunately we are NOT all in this
together. Look at the incidences that border on "mob rule", people thwarting
the guidelines on the now opened beaches, refusing to wear masks, most
with the "I'm in it for me" attitude.
These people are hurting the rest of us, and there doesn't seem to be any
way to reach them. It's hard to tell someone who has no foods to put on the
table that they can't go back to work because of "social distancing". The
only thing we can do is donate when we can - Bono wrote a song with the
lyrics "If you can't do what you do, do what you can" that seems like pretty
|AS YOU MAY HAVE NOTICED, last week Columbus lost one of its
most ardent supporters of the arts : SALLY FOLEY. Sally had her
hands in so much and so many organizations it's not possible to list all
of them here. Those who knew her saw her great determination to
accomplish whatever she set out to do. Her own gardens are a
landmark here, and are a wonder to behold.
