... I throw it down.
Meet me and my big ideas. Nice to meet you.
I have challenged a friend of mine to a blog race of sorts. Most posts in a year wins.
We have not discussed the prize, but I suppose that doesn't matter because I know I will win- so I kind of feel sorry for him. (heh heh)...
Anyway- tonight was eventful. I made my way to the top of Reunion Tower for the first time in my life. The view was astounding, and I apologize in advance that there will be no showcase of photos from this experience (I vow to photog more). My purpose for this expedition was to attend the 3rd SPARK Club meeting. It is a fantastic gathering of social entrepreneurs and artists to mingle, learn from each other, and in theory- spark new ideas and ventures. It was only the third gathering, but it has already grown quite a bit.
In addition to networking, there were also a couple of folks who spoke about the projects they are involved in. The first to speak was the owner of The Movement Dallas- a holistic approach to mind-body fitness and overseers of a local organic co-op. Truly inspirational and something I am definitely going to be looking into getting involved with. Next, Sarah Jane Semrad talked about La Reunion, the future artist residency here in Oak Cliff. Again- truly inspirational and something I will be getting involved with.
The meeting tonight made me proud to be where I am- and proud to be amongst so many wonderful and talented people who care about their community and each other so deeply. Inspiration abound.
After SPARK Club, I ventured to the Fairmont Hotel to the opening of a new gallery located in the bottom level of the hotel, where the artwork of a friend of mine was on display. George Fowler is a very talented sculptor- and his sculptures are definitely worth seeing if you ever get a chance. Currently, he is also has a show up at The Cameron Gallery.
