|A subset of the group that meets twice monthly for music night. They sang three songs - one with video back-up!
|Joyce is a talented artist, and she taught us a few techniques with a few different models - so cool!
|Kelly has a beautiful voice, but for this performance she focused on her awesome guitar skills
|Marj told a very warm and funny story about distributing her mother's ashes all across the US
|Phil usually reads an essay from one of his books of essays - a talented writer. He even taught essay writing at the Duke continuing education program
|Jim is also a very talented writer. After many years of dedicated research he is just finishing a book about the Outer Banks. He read some from the book, and it was wonderful!
|Vonda is a poet and usually shares with us some of her poetry. I love one of her poems so much that it has been on my fridge for year. I'll put it at the end of this entry!
|Oh My God. How many people in their 60s can still do a cartwheel??? Well, Joan can! Yes, this is talent, but it's also about being in great shape. She also summited Kilimanjaro this past year!
|Mary and her kids sang the ABC song, but they were a little shy, so the whole group sang it together to encourage them!
|Michael entertained us with Summertime on his trumpet - both playing and singing (but not at the same time :))
|Jim is a lover of poetry - especially Mary Oliver - and loves to share his favorites
|The post-show potluck was delicious!!
|There is never a lack of good food in this community!
|On the way home from the talent show I couldn't resist taking a couple of photos of the pond on this beautiful day!
