Saints and Sinners Pictorial

Saints and Sinners Pictorial

Hosted by 12th & Broad, Saints and Sinners gave us all a chance to choose between the seven deadly sins or the seven holy virtues in an interactive manner. Guests were encouraged to eat, drink and play games, along with many opportunities to get in shape and donate time, money, or unwanted items to their community. We were also encouraged to, "wear red if you're a sinner or white if you're a saint".

Gothic Circus

Gothic Circus

I didn't don a costume for Halloween this year. Instead I dressed up for a very special event. It was a dark and stormy night - really, it was - perfect weather for the Gothic Circus sponsored by 12th & Broad and hosted by Abrasive Media.  A celebration of Nashville's growing community of circus artists, the evening's performances included "awe-inspiring aerialists, fire artists, burlesque dancers and graceful acrobatics— blended into narratives, creating a dramatic, sophisticated mash-up of theater, live performances and the body as art."

Celebrating 53

Celebrating 53

Last week the ladies of Nashville's 12th & Broad wrote a piece about birthdays.

Almost everything they're experiencing is old hat to me, but that doesn't mean that my life has run it's course and I'm ready to "go quietly into that good night".
