"Rivers and Tides", a documentary about sculptor Andy Goldsworthy, depicts the magical relationship between art and nature.  While few of us have the artistic vision of a world-renown sculptor, we can all appreciate the influence and affect of the environment in Goldsworthy's works.  This film is a visual delight.

Here is the first paragraph recently printed in the Washington Post about this subject:
 
"Colleen Haraden-Gorski uses her embroidery skills these days to embellish quilts made by students at school and community-center workshops on themes of social justice and working together to make a difference."
 
Colleen will be our guest speaker on Thursday, January 4, at 6:30pm.  She has many skills and among them is her "day-job" profession:  geologist working in environmental areas.  She is a mom to two adopted kids, Chloe and Jonah; wife to husband Wally who teaches high school in Antioch; community activist through art and crafts.
 
She will talk with us about how our old-school crafts are relevant today and how they (and we) can make a quiet and profound impact in our community.
 
"I found my voice.  It makes me feel hopeful," said Haraden-Gorski.
 
Bring a friend.  Bring more than one if you can.  Hope is contagious.  Spread it around.  Usual potluck and social time about 6:30-ish; program at 7pm.

An Inconvenient Sequel:  2017.  Al Gore:  "Every night, through the TV news, is a major hike through the Book of Revelation," he said. "We've had these three big hurricanes and 17 fires raging out of control. In the last decade, it's gotten worse than scientists have predicted. “

The film follows the efforts made to tackle climate change and Al Gore's attempts to persuade governmental leaders to invest in renewable energy, culminating in the signing of the Paris Climate Agreement in 2016.
