I almost missed this beautiful sunset tonight, but caught it right as I pulled into the driveway! This is one of my favorite times of the year, because with the time change, I can still catch the sunsets that we are blessed with from our front yard! ❤️
Over the weekend I saw the incredible “No Blue Memories: The Life of Gwendolyn Brooks” @dukeperformances.
It’s hard to describe..I’ve never seen a performance quite like this one before.
So instead of me trying to describe it, here’s what its website says: “No Blue Memories: The Life of Gwendolyn Brooks brings to life the story of one of Chicago’s most beloved figures. She was an icon, a poet laureate, and a Pulitzer Prize winner—but she was also a treasured educator and mentor to the countless writers and children who knew her as their very own “Miss Brooks.” Weaving together poetry, storytelling, and striking visuals, No Blue Memories is an exploration of Brooks’s beloved city and a story of how she navigated identity, craft, and politics over the course of one of the most remarkable careers in American literary history. The performance combines intricate paper puppetry, live actors working in shadow, and an original score for an unforgettable multi-media experience.”
The work was commissioned by the Poetry Foundation and first performed in 2017 in celebration of Brooks’ centenary.
The next performance is scheduled for May 8, 2019, at the @blumenthalarts in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Highly recommend seeing it! Definitely worth a trip to Charlotte!
