Melia Kaplan-Hartnett: What I Gained

Presents at 12:50pm

Magazine clippings that read, from top to bottom, left to right: The last 27 months informed travel trapped in assumptions by people about injected music with one closed exit. The night warriors sitting by technology rely through data at new fire. Everything quickly changing the bold vortex center. A powerful woman by sand street observation knocks my fear to spoken end. Ears ask for help exploring out sketchbook letter and music lives your choice. A story exchange profiles who we create. Disorders place danger on new fiction.

Angela C. Brittain - Celebration of Self and the Fount Within

Presents at 1:00pm

Picture of a smooth lake with a tree line behind the lake reflecting off of the surface of the lake.

What is it of “self” that seeks to be loved? 

To be recognized and truly heard. 

Seen in totality and fully known. 

Scars, flaws, and idiosyncrasies bared. 

There is fear yet freedom in the baring – 

Freedom that takes flight when love depends not upon approval, 

But rather from a deep well within. 

This type of fount will not run dry, 

But continually serve to refresh and nourish the soul.
