Oh, man!!! There is so much of the spreading of empowerment through art happening during WonderFest that I feel I can’t do it justice in prose!
For fuller details on our experience, see our WonderWomenWorld blog!
In a nutshell, Day 4 brought us:
Workshop: Turning Wounds Into Wisdom lead by Nova Browning Rutherford.
The group learned to accept the discomfort of change, to focus on actions that lead toward our goals and values, and that life is in fact long and not short therefore we have plenty of time to figure things out and follow our path!
The Workshop group!
Super Men Concert! Wowza Wowza what a lineup of talent to digest! The evening was jampacked with music and words to move the soul, friendship to fill the heart, and laughter to jiggle the belly!
Arlene and I with the wonderful Super Men!
Which brings us to tonight! Tonight is the WonderFest finale: Wonder Women in Concert! Gladstone Hotel 7pm (doors) 8pm (show) with art displays, videos, vendors, a special comic book photo booth for all, and of course the lineup of Wonder Women! I’ll be performing my new song Love Mania! Wakawakawakawaka! We hope to see you there spreading empowerment through art!
The foundation of friendships is a force for mountain moving! (Arlene Paculan and I, WonderFest co-conspirators!)
FLOOD FLOTSAM: This is a poem I found in the flooded basement debris. I wrote it in high school. I like it because it’s about finding love but not necessarily romantic love. I’ve always found incredibly deep love in friendship.
Someone special in your life
is what every somebody needs,
even if they’re kept deep inside your heart
and only come out in your dreams.
When all the others shake their heads,
turn their backs and walk away,
there should always be somebody standing,
someone special left to stay.
Through all unhappiness,
for all the times you cry,
someone special is there with a smile,
to dry your tears, to be on your side.
I’ve found this someone special in you.
Who else could there possible be?
You’re the only one in this whole wide world
Who makes me see someone special in me.
Wishing someone special for all of you!
Love love love!
