A new year brings new opportunities to imagine futures, find new spaces, and create! The teens, Ms. Duncan, Ms. Is, and I were sad that our beloved coffee house, The Spilled Bean, closed shortly before Christmas. Our relationship with the original owner, Tim Panza, and then new owner, Shannon Childers, has been special. We will miss having that place to gather.
With one door closing, the TPH leaders had to scramble to find new digs for our monthly meetings. We are grateful that Taylorsville Presbyterian graciously offered their basement fellowship hall to us. Thank you so much! It appears to work quite well for our needs.
Please remember we are gathering art, poetry, photography, and short stories for the 2013 Alexander Muse which will be published in April. The last day to submit is February 28, 2013. Digital submissions of prose, poetry, and photographs only please, but art can be turned into Alexander Central High School or to me at the library. There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place and 3 honorable mentions per category.
As you can see below, the teens did not miss a beat in the new locale. They were as creative, thoughtful, and awesome as ever! Come and join us next month to see what goodies you can cultivate.
