For my 2017 challenge, I was not sure
quite what I wanted to blog about. Numerous ideas were coming to mind
but each seemed to require even more energy and strength. So I’ve
decided to focus on an acronym for ART:
A – Artists (musicians, painters, photographers, writers, etc.)
R – Reading (books, poems, etc.)
T – Theater (movies, musicals, plays, etc.)
So let’s begin…
Artists: Kate Cordsen (U.S.A.)
Cordsen says her experiences in Asia have “greatly influence much of who [she is]. In Japanese aesthetics [she is] drawn to the reverence of chance and of imperfection and the profound importance
of empty space — in art, in literature and in daily life.”
I love her ability to capture the innocence of nature.
R: The Crown and the Crucible (Michael Phillips & Judith Pella)
P.S. – There is a strong Christian presence in the books.
Frank Wildhorn and Nan Knighton’s Camille Claudel has never had its chance at Broadway but the eleven o’clock number for the leading lady, “Gold”, has become a staple for sopranos and was used by Kristi Yamaguchi during the 2001/2002 Season of Stars on Ice.
