The May Day Benefit for the Women's Resource Center of Northern Michigan Safe House was a great success on every level possible. As the booths were disassembled and bands packed away their sound equipment, the representatives for the WRC stuffed as much of the donations, as they safely could, into their vehicle. The first warm day with no rain wound down into a star filled evening. But not before hugs were exchanged with smiles of knowing that something wonderful happened on this day.
All the good people who helped to launch this 11th annual event into being, and all the work associated with it are to be commended with deep gratitude from Sacred Sparks. One community of kindred spirits working towards one goal can truly manifest wonderful, successful and joyous results. This year was one of those events.
We give thanks to all involved on every level of production and to the public for giving so generously to the WRC. They will put the donations to the best of use for those folks who are driven in desperation to the Safe House. I personally know some folks who feel the love and safe harboring the Safe House offers. Jerry and I are humbled to be able to host this on the grounds.
Today, May 21st, it is 80 degrees with sunshine abounding in an azure sky. The birds can't sing any louder and the varied shades of green are a welcome sight for our winter ravaged souls. What a great way to begin a new growing season. Blessed Be to all who came and supported this cause with their talent, hard work, and happy hearts.
OK... one more comment... take a look at the difference between the photos of my last post and this one. You will get a good chuckle... :)
