In the lobby of the Key City Theatre on Tuesday morning, world class musicians were rehearsing for the upcoming festival this weekend. A simple excursion to buy tickets for a dance recital became the start of a most beautiful day, even though I was only wrapped in that incredible sound for a short time. Opening my car door on Tenth Avenue I was greeted by Mama Mallard and nine ducklings making her way at a fast and very determined pace towards the parking area behind the post office. I couldn't bring myself to drive as far as the highway to see if she made it to the creek - I hope she did. In the Arts Council Gallery, high school students were critiquing their peers art work, looking for balance, unity and all the elements that make a wonderful composition. Down at the Heritage Inn, a captivated audience was learning more about the coast and country of the area that could be impacted by the Enbridge Pipeline and how we might preserve what many consider a beautiful and ever more diminishing wilderness.
There is a saying that everyone needs beauty as well as bread - Tuesday was full of proof.
