I love October. It is my favorite month and ends with my favorite holidays. This October was also supposed to be the last month of my 103 days of Butoh challenge, but wow I have really screwed that up. The last few days I have been revisiting many things, my life in general and how to live it to it fullest potential and without fear (I am open to suggestion there folks), my dance artist life, my relationships (ha), etc. So I moved the date of the end of my Butoh challenge to December 1st. As far as getting the rest of my life on track, well, I don’t know about that except that I am so grateful for every day and for all that I have. This month I am focusing on gratitude and trying to figure out what my gifts in this life are and how to use them in a way that may be helpful in our world (also open to suggestion on that).
Please enjoy the slideshow of these photographs by Sandee Johnson of my show back in January from the Asheville Fringe Arts Festival. It was supported by a Regional Arts Project Grant form the Asheville Area Arts Council (AAAC), Madison County Arts Council (MCAC), and the Toe River Arts Council (TRAC). Support is provided by the North Carolina Arts Council, a state agency, with additional contributions by the Asheville Area Arts Council, Avery County, Madison County Arts Council, Asheville Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Arts, and the Toe River Arts Council. The Regional Artist Project Grant is awarded annually to provide financial support for committed, accomplished artists by funding a project pivotal to a career in their respective art forms. The deadline for application this year is October 15th, so please apply if you are an artist in this area!
