The Death of the Arts?

What was your favorite part of elementary school? Math? Reading? Visits to the principal's office?

Or did you love your art classes? Learning to sing and play an instrument?

Yes, you did. Sure, you enjoyed other aspects, too...but there was just something special about those arts programs.

Except there are people out there who don't see it that way. And they are making those programs disappear from our children's lives.

If that sounds appalling to you, do something about it.

Watch your local news. See what school districts are eliminating their arts programs.

Do something about it.

Don't know where to start? Start here:

Please support free public arts education.

Wait a Minute...I Have a Blog?!

Yes, yes...I know. It has been a long time. A very long time.

Everything has been and has felt so busy lately. As I go through my daily Internet routine in the morning, I look at the little blog icon and sigh. It just felt like one more chore.

Quite a bit has felt like one more chore lately. 2012 has not been very kind thus far. I'm trying to remember that I believe things happen for a reason, but that old cliche has been tested quite a bit this year.

So, if you'll forgive me, I might be absent from this blog from time to time. I'm trying to be creative and post pretty pictures and all sorts of other things that I should be blogging about, but until some current issues get taken care of, I'm probably going to continue to be largely absent.

I think that I just don't want to write about life just now...
