Inspired by fashion and good friends...

Looking for some Cirque inspiration...a little pinot noir, Irish cheddar, honey from a friend's bees...when I should be catching some zzz's. I had an outstanding night last night at Maria Thomas and Rick Robert's house. They are the founders of Zentangle, and Rick is the keeper of bees. This art form and the message behind it is spreading virally around the world in record time. You should maybe check it out, as everyone who starts doing it, falls in love with time, space and their unknown creativity. Every single person is creative in some way. You just have to stop for a second, and TRY it.

From the Zentangle site:

Zentangle is simple to understand and easy to enjoy — even if you are convinced you are not an artist. With Zentangle, you can always explore new areas of experience and insight. Here are some theories which explain why Zentangle is not only easy and enjoyable, but also profound and uplifting. You Can Do Anything, One Stroke at a Time™...more

Oh, and by the way Rick Roberts, along with Scott Boilard, Derek Ring, Payal Kripalani, William Griffiths, Cynthia Woehrle will be at Cirque Du Noir on October 25th to celebrate art and contribute to the live art fusion all in support of the Worcester County Food Bank. Last year's fusion pieces raised about $1000 for the food bank. The silent auction was unbelievable. So many local artist donated pieces. They were spectacular!

Adoniram Sides, Scott Erb, Iris Chase, Erin Wolczik, Emily Quillen, Scott Boilard, Rick and Maria Thomas, Cindy Woehrle, Andreea Waters, Sue Donofrio, Laura Niemi, Scott Holloway, and others, friends of friends who so graciously contributed to the auction. The art was so outstanding. I was pretty overwhelmed looking at all of it before the night began.

Nothing is possible without great sponsors and even the press was excited...at the time of putting it all together, I had no idea that USTA NE was donating 2 tickets to the US OPEN! Pardon-a-me USTA for not having your name as huge as the MOON on that link...to be updated very soon.

Our venue was perfect. The staff at Bocado was in full Cirque spirit, dressing in all black and very creative attire. The food and the vibe brought the night full cirlce. I can't thank Niche Hospitality enough for bringing it like they did...and for being a leading sponsor this year.
We are so happy we chose Bocado and look forward to another amazing night of black magic here in Worcester.

Oh, yeah, tix are available on eventbrite.
