A little Art, Joy and Peanuts in life

It's mid-summer, or thereabouts. Hot out here in the small town by the edge of the bay and the big water. July is the best sort of month for goofing off, hanging out with friends and generally loafing.  It's also a fine month for taking part in an art show. 


Earlier, while Anglican blogland was dormant or muttering about transparency and such, here in Lewes Preludium has found it difficult to attend to such matters, there being the glorious 4th, boat parades and the like to yank the heart to new and different places. And to top it all off there is a gallery opening this Friday over in Milford of art done by a group of printmakers, including stuff from PreludiumArt. 


So, a quick photo romp through the past three weeks:


First, the glorious 4th:


Amity (the boat) in the Boat Parade:







Lily (gdaughter) and Ema (daughter) waiting for the fireworks: 






Then the light up of the sky.




And now, two weeks later, the hanging of the show:




While there are others in Anglican blogland who are clearly out there grabbing the brass ring as the horses go up and down and the carousel goes round and round, down here in the small town by the big water we hold our own, and joy, that incredible gift of God, knows few bounds.


Best to Padre Mickey and his beautiful granchile, to Counterlight, who is a real genuine artist, and to other assorted wonderful joyful creative people out there in other venues in Anglicanland. Here we are running with the pack, what with our own beautiful small ones and art of some value, not to mention a good hold on the glorious 4TH.  


Peace be upon us all.

    Great pictures of Amity and the kiddos...

    My favorite 4th of July tradition may be the Boston Globe's annual guest editorial by Thomas Jefferson, even though it constitutes a mortal challenge the authority of the Defender of the Faith.

    Now, that's the definition of schism!
