Music definitely is the universal language of the world.  Music has a way of getting people together in  a harmonious way.  I have recently travelled to Mexico City and San Miguel De Allende and even though my Spanish was limited I was able to enjoy the festive music that was a constant and beautiful sound.  Passionate and Colorful music was evident throughout both cities.   Please enjoy the Musician which will be available at the Reno Art Fest June 30th - July 1st in the Biggest Little City.  The festival takes place on Virginia st. between 4th and 6th street.

A Light Exists in Spring 

By Emily Dickinson

A light exists in spring
Not present on the year
At any other period.
When March is scarcely here

A color stands abroad
On solitary hills
That science cannot overtake,
But human naturefeels.

It waits upon the lawn;
It shows the furthest tree
Upon the furthest slope we know;
It almost speaks to me.

Then, as horizons step,
Or noons report away,
Without the formula of sound,
It passes, and we stay:

A quality of loss
Affecting our content,
As trade had suddenly encroached
Upon a sacrament.

The month for LOVE.  It seems love and romance can be expressed by a color.  That is what I love about art.

LEUKOTHEA (Leucothea) was a sea goddess who came to the aid of sailors in distress.

She was once a mortal princess named Ino, a daughter of King Kadmos (Cadmus) of Thebes. She and her husband Athamas incurred the wrath of Hera when they fostered the infant god Dionysos. As punishment the goddess drove Athamas into a murderous rage and he slew his eldest child. Ino then grapped the other, and in her flight leapt off a cliff into the sea. The pair were welcomed into the company of the sea-gods and renamed Leukothea (the White Goddess) and Palaimon (Palaemon).

Leukothea later came to the aid of Odysseus when his raft had been destroyed by Poseidon, and wrapped him in the safety of her buoyant shawl.

Bring some "Zen" into your life. Our lives are busy enough but I think art can add a calm to our homes, our lives. I could not imagine my life ever without art. My first experience to an Art Museum felt like I stepped into a different dimension. Even though I was a child it left an impression on me, a feeling and voice in my ear. I hope I never forget that feeling. It lives within me to this day. Enjoy!
