Your invitation

Here's your invite. "Growing Roots" is the project I've been working on for the last year. The idea behind it is to encourage reaching out to others. Through dance, poetry, acting, music and my paintings, we're going to show the deeper often secret layers of an individual's personality.
It seems lately that people are getting increasingly isolated because of fear. I think one thing that can help is getting to know someone past the aquaintance stage. It's at that point that we can grow roots, which in turn strengthens our communities and gives us tools to face challenges.
If you're in Moncton on December 12 at 7:00 pm, nourish your community by 'growing some roots" during an evening of art, discussion, and great company at City Hall, 655 Main St. Moncton.
If you're not in Moncton, I'm sure you've found how enriching it can be to "grow roots" or meet people online. I invite you to leave some links either to your own site or to your best internet buddies.
