I have been extremely busy but I have missed you all...
Ken and I attended a wedding celebration for Karianne and Brett on Saturday at Longenberger Country Club with beautiful weather and joyful families uniting with loving support of this young couple. They are strangers to you but I can just say if you are in a united family ...well you already can visualize our experience. ken performed a simple and sincere service and today in these chaotic times every new marriage needs our support and guidance as they embark on journey in life.
Today we attended the "Best of Ohio 2012" opening where it was much like a family reunion ...a reunion where everyone supports the artists and their beautiful creations. Tony Reynolds and Kate Gorman both received awards but there were about 8 other awards to be passed out. The juror was Lloyd E. Herman, founding director of the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian Art Museum. This exhibit is one of the highest quality exhibitions in the Midwest and a real appreciation of the artisans working to explore and define their individual crafts. Quilts, felted sculptures, stoneware, wood sculptures, glass, copper, jewelery, paper....the exhibit deserves another examination for my complete appreciation. Today was a party...a chance to cheer people we love and their success and a family reunion for decades of friendships. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
