I am at a photoshoot for the book all day today. These are incredibly fun, but suck up lots of time, so not much time to spare today. I wanted to let you know about two things-
Wendy Crabb, friend and very talented artist, is part of an incredible Peter Pan-inspired art show, Little Stars, opening December 1st from 2-5 pm at Cera Gallery in Los Angeles. Here is the full press release from the gallery. It will be in interactive show for children and adults, with a storytime. Wendy's statement about the show says it all:
As a girl I loved the story of Peter Pan simply because the girl's name is Wendy and there was magic and fairies. But I have continued to love the story because it has this beautiful sadness, especially with the female characters. They all give a piece of themselves to Peter, who cannot return it. I find it beautiful and tragic.
But then, there are also the Lost Boys (Tootles is my favorite) who just want to be loved. The Lost Boys represent pure innocence to me. They aren’t trying to hang on to childhood like Peter. They are like children - completely in the moment. Whether it’s pretending to hunt animals on the island or getting tucked in at night with stories told by Wendy, the Lost Boys live each day filled with wonder and excitement.
Peter Pan is a story about magic, imagination and childhood and hanging on to all of the amazingness that goes with it. I am hoping to create a little fun and magic with this show by making the art touchable or at least hoping to make you look at the pieces in a different way.
Pieces will be available online as well as at the gallery once the show opens. Wendy, I so wish I could be there!
Our friends at Sweet Paul will be doing an in-store event at Terrain in Westport, CT on Sunday December 2nd. They will be handing out samples of our very own little chocolate brand, Komforte Chockolates at the event, and bars are also available at Terrain, so if you are in the area and have a moment, stop by!
Which reminds me, I haven't told you about our newest flavor, Movie Night. It's soooo good! More on that soon.
