Winter Deer

Churches United of the Quad City Area will hold a fun afternoon of entertainment on Sunday, January 27, from 2-4pm at First Presbyterian Church in Davenport, Iowa to raise money for their 24 food pantries, meal sites,  the women’s shelter, and all the other great work they do.

Organizers invited area clergy to put on a fun show. There will be music, poetry and art, and even Rabbi Tamar and Imam Saad Baig will do a comedy routine. At first suggestion, I would show some work and talk about my summer sabbatical. Things have evolved. Now I will be sketching on stage to music…or nature sounds.

I decided today, that I want to practice drawing everyday, small sketches to get in shape. Drawing on stage is a stretch for me, but I am surprisingly excited and relaxed about it–it will be fun! Now I need to select the music (or nature sounds)…any ideas are welcome.

Prayer: Thank you, Holy Spirit, for Christian unity, for friends of different faith traditions, and for Sharpie markers.

    Hi. I like the sparseness of this … I often see deer standing in a thicket, and you can only ever see a part of the whole body. Jane
