A letter sparked an impromptu gathering at the county-owned property between Prune Alley and North Beach Road known as the "Fern Street Path" on the evening of Tuesday, Sept. 27.
I enjoyed so much how the children poured their hearts and souls into their artistic expressions on stage. It was fun! The audience seemed to enjoy the confidence and courage of the children ranging from preschool through high school, including family acts, whether it be a four year old doing spontaneous moves above the stage with silks, dancing with grace and creativity, playing their musical instrument with earnestness and joy, singing with voices that express the poignancy of the songs they chose to sing. I am so thankful that Orcas Center produces Whale of a Show to give so many children the opportunity to either cope with fear and strong feelings or learn to skip the fear and express themselves with sincerity. I love everything about working/playing with children and adults involved in creating a Whale of a Show. Thanks again to each and every person who performed or helped with the show. I have so much appreciation and happiness.
Books are my best friends. As an avid reader most of my life, I always bought my books before moving to Orcas Island 25 years ago. I had never used libraries before moving here, but living in a small community and looking at local interaction, I opened the door to a new experience by getting my library card and becoming an active library user.
With award-winning films, panels and parties, the Orcas Island Film Festival, Oct. 7-10, promises to be another exciting weekend. As many readers probably know OIFF is fast becoming a world class festival that hosts emerging Oscar contenders.
