A Matter of Perspective

Sometimes I get sidetracked with the day-to-day stuff that I forget that most of it is minor in comparison to the big picture. We all struggle with something.

We go through life and experience a multitude of things and sometimes, well–things just suck.

Today I got confirmation that Serenity Place Gallery will be closing its doors at the end of September and that just sucks. As a writer I should probably be more eloquent but that phrase sums it up for me.

Each month my well gets filled at the marvelous artist reception and all my senses feast on the delectable art, music, and food that are presented.

My social interactions with other artisans are a refreshing break from the solitude of writing. It is also an opportunity to get together with peers…people who are working at their passion. Passion that is often a struggle, but always is a joy.

The synergy and dynamic energy of Serenity Place attracts artists of all types. People crawl out of their private spaces to share their works with others. It brings beauty and joy into the world and lures a wide variety of patrons and appreciative mountain dwellers to the openings.

Serenity Place created a community and taught art and appreciation to those who might not have been motivated to explore it before. But much more than that, it was someone’s dream come true.

Many of the valley residents recognize the shift in the economy and some merchants have been hit earlier than others. The tragedy is that Serenity Place is one of the latter.

In our conversation, Cindy asked me to let you know that they are having a big sale. Laura Jaynes will be the featured artist for September and the doors will be open until the end of the September 2007.

If you have been a fan of the gallery please plan on showing your support and share you well wishes at the next event on the first Saturday.

To Fawnskin residents Cindy and Louis, I can only say thank you for the wonderful ripple you sent out into the universe.

You’ll probably never know just how your beautiful venture impacted the world but at least you had the courage to taste what living your dream can be like…and I can’t wait to see what exciting things unfold for you in the future.
