For my 2017 A to Z 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)
The series is now available in electronic format at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
P.S. – There is a strong Christian presence in the books.
T: Camille Claudel (Frank Wildhorn/Nan Knighton)
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.
