where they sing

Her name is Kate. Yes, the works are for sale. No price tags because of the children. The education she offers them here is about expression. She has fifteen coming in tomorrow for an hour, a class provided freely to the community. Do you use music with the kids? I ask.

Right now the place is the quiet of walk softly and peek around corners. Yes, she nods.

The artists in this show must be from either Mississippi or Alabama but they can now live anywhere in the world and many of them do.  Much of this work is done by educators from our universities. It is rare that an artist can survive on merely their art, but I do think they use it to survive.

Then they show us. Admission to the museum is free.

Today I am grateful for a job, a paycheck which still allows me my passion.
What kind of crazy, great world is that?
