The second annual Arts Night will take place at the Unitarian/Universalist Fellowship of Bay County on Friday, Jan. 16, from 7 - 9 p.m. The Fellowship is located at 1410 Airport Road in Panama City, FL, at the intersection of Lisenby and Airport roads. Admission is FREE. Light refreshments will be served, free of charge.
I've been invited to read selections of my prose or poetry (I'll probably go with something from the 366 Days project). I will also have my books available for purchase.
Jeanine "Dr. Jazz" Normand, from the sister U/U Fellowship in Fairhope, AL, will start out the evening with her jazz piano. Lynn Wallace of Gulf Coast Community College will read selections of original prose and poetry, and his books will be available for purchase.
Local artist Jim Davis' paintings will be displayed throughout the building. Jim will be featuring some of his work from the 1970s and '80s that has never had a public showing before. His artwork will be available for purchase.
Rug-weaver and jewelry-maker Emily Pritchard will have her work set up for display and for sale. The Panama City Belly Dance group will perform. Group leader Kira Burdeshaw will talk about the history and ancient traditions of the dance.
Last year, I'm told, they had a full house, and I hope it will be just as successful this year. Please join us in our celebration of the arts!

Today's Pick: I've been listening to lots of different music in recent weeks as I put together a couple of mix CDs for Twitter pals. One artist in particular has had me hooked for a while: Ben Gibbard and Death Cab for Cutie. His "Passenger Seat" will haunt me for the rest of my life.
Today's Word: Zen. (Be prepared to participate.)
