A Shanty House Warming
With Cameron's Restaurant now closed, Three Sheets has nowhere to sing until we find another pub to host us. In our third week as nomads I decided that I could host the group and make it a low key house warming/ Shanty singing night. And so I did. It was not all I had envisioned it would be but it was. That it happened is what is important. And I would love to do it again in better weather when we can sit outside instead of being crammed into a room that seemed large until everyone showed up.
My first introduction to the word. "Craftivist" was a YouTube video by Casey Jenkins,
which amazed me. I decided to be more visible with my own creativity. i now keep a kit of tools and metal in my car for "public displays of creativity". Sometimes this evolves into a mini lesson. The expression on a person's face when they look for the first time at something they created drives me to continue being more public. When I was younger i felt my creativity was a burden. Now I feel it is the best gift.
