Happy Summer Solstice! It seems as if the sun and it's radiance is showing up everywhere! After such a long winter I welcome each and every morning I can take my tea out to the garden and just breath in the luscious scents of summer! I am feeling the creative flow of this wonderful time of year and have been cleaning out the cobwebs of the winter and I'm brimming with new energy.
And did you hear this? I love this story of "Play Me I'm Yours." From today until July 5th artist Luke Jerram, in conjunction with the non-profit Sing For Hope, has plunked down 50 pianos across New YorK City and anyone can stop and tickle the ivories, play a song or nocturne or belt out a show tune. Luke's website describes it like this:
"Questioning the ownership and rules of public space 'Play Me I'm Yours' is a provocation, inviting the public to engage with, activate and take ownership of their urban environment. ‘Play Me, I’m Yours’ provides an interconnected resource, a blank canvas, for the public to express themselves and share their creativity."
I LOVE THAT! You can check out artist Luke Jerram here. And here you'll find a map of where the pianos are in NYC. If you are in NYC (Seth!), please stop and play a tune for me. I know the vibrations will carry and I'll catch a glimpse of it in the early summer mornings in my garden.
