August Porch Nights - Week One

Once again, we're continuing our much-loved tradition on the porch at Cedar House.  This is a fun opportunity to hear stories read aloud -- something we all enjoyed as kids, but you don't have to be a kid to enjoy it.

We almost always read from the tales of George MacDonald, as he is a huge favorite around here. His stories are known for being highly imaginative and full of deep, yet accessible teaching. As a writer, he was a true innovator, and had a significant influence on Lewis Carroll, J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, and Charles Williams. (The photo of MacDonald shown here was actually taken by Lewis Carroll in the 1860's.)

We haven’t decided which story we’ll read this year, but when we do we’ll post it here.

Stoyline Public Reading

At this reading event, we’re excited to present David Harmon as our featured writer. David will read a number of his recent works — leading us into places we can only get to with the guidance of a poet. His work explores some of the dark areas of loss and grief, and does so fearlessly and with beautiful and hopeful tones.

We’ll also hear a variety of recently written material from Alan Buhtz, Kevin Oshiro, Craig Combs, Eleanor Bailey, and Tim Robinson. This will be a great evening —- join us if you can!

Second Saturday Artist Gathering

On a number of occasions, we have encouraged artists to use their unique perspectives and abilities to respond to tragedy.  Doing so can bring hope, encouragement, and coping ability to individuals and to whole communities.  Karen Robinson spent awhile in Paradise California last week with a woman who lost her home in last year's enormous fire.  Karen returned with some amazing pictures showing how works of art can bring hope and healing to a community that was devastated.  At this gathering we'll spend awhile showing those pictures and talking about the power of artists in such moments.

Join us — we’ll provide coffee, tea, and some light morning fare. You bring yourself, and if you’d like, some of your artwork to share.

It's been two months this time, as September's gathering was canceled.  So you've had two months to put together something creative to bring and share.  I would love to see you this Saturday (whether you have anything or not).  We'll gather at 10am, spend awhile getting connected, enjoy some simple food & drink, then share our artwork until 12:30 or 1:00.  It's a great way to spend a Saturday morning. Come on by!

August Porch Nights - Week Four

Once again, we're continuing our much-loved tradition on the porch at Cedar House.  This is a fun opportunity to hear stories read aloud -- something we all enjoyed as kids, but you don't have to be a kid to enjoy it.  Come listen to part four of "The Princess and Curdie," an old and wonderful tale by George MacDonald - first published in 1883.  We'll have two reading sessions with a short break in the middle.  MacDonald's stories are known for being highly imaginative and full of deep, yet accessible teaching.  As a writer, he was a true innovator, whose works influenced Lewis Carroll, J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, and Charles Williams. (The photo here was actually taken by Lewis Carroll in the 1860's.)
