Homer is where the heart is...

One night at Old Town B&B right above the gallery and we were set. Central to everything with views of the mountains on one side and the ocean from another window, it's a nice walk from several good places. One of the places right next door to the Bunnell St. Art Gallery is Panarelli's. Asia Freeman our beautiful, charming, thoughtful artist and host dropped us off for lunch there. She had to speed off to another engagement but I caught her in time for a quick paparazzi shot. She's got a fascinating history with Homer. If you ever come this way...visit her at the gallery and she can tell you stories.

The morning started off with a walk to breakfast at Two Sisters Bakery. Snow flurries in the air. Brisk walk in the morning. Leilani didn't feel so good as she's been under the weather. She joined us for the first workshop at the school but we made her rest for the 2nd workshop. She is still resting and recovering. May Lee and I have taken to facilitate the workshops with ease. I love team work. We also met Mike Hayes for the first time the technical hire for Bunnell Street Art Galllery, who drove us in a van which we are suppose to have for use. He and Jen are working hard to get the lights and sound ready for the show.

Homer is a nice town full of heart and the people here are gracious. Today, we set foot on Fireweed Acadamy School and were led by Kiki Abrahamson to meet the students. We worked our tails off presenting two theater workshops today with energetic and bright 5 and 6th graders. This is an amazing school. The children are very bright, the teachers warm and the atmosphere full of learning and growing. Tomorrow we work with 3rd and 4th graders and I'm very curious as to how they will turn out. Hopefully, I'll get a nice shot of everyone tomorrow and I can post on the next blog. Introduced and welcomed in the gym in front of 75 plus students we did a quick intro and went to work. Funny how all the kids had more questions about Pirates of the Caribbean 3 than anything else, go figure.
May Lee would like to register to be a student at Fireweed...she fits right in with her size and look at the attitude on her face. School anyone?

On our arrival to Fireweed, I posed with a bicycle fish.

After a nice long day. We went to eat at Fat Olive's an Italian eatery that is housed in the old school bus barn. I had the game hen...tasty. It was nice to be together again and take some time to plan out the rest of our stay. Hung out at Duggan's pub and had myself a beer while Leilani and May Lee glued themselves to reality tv (Survivor:China) on youtube.
