This year we have joined “Giving Tuesday” to celebrate donations to non-profits on one special day, and now we are continuing that day.

The Water Dish and Giving Tuesday

I looked out my kitchen window and saw a squirrel drinking from a large water dish I keep filled outside - the dish reads Tempus Fugit around the edge with Roman numerals. A boat is part of it in the center. The sail throws a shadow and is a kind of clock. My cat drinks from it, and often birds play in it. Today, Thanksgiving, I am thankful for this dish that nourishes my outside world, and I am thankful for our company, that nourishes those who drink or play its offerings. Whether you are a student or audience member or dancer, thank you for participating and being part of that world.


Giving Tuesday was part of our year-end fund drive, and we liked the logo so are keeping it this month. This tells you a bit our our last year (#35) and the one coming up (#36). Please contribute. Each photo is about part of our programming, so check each for the different reasons we deserve your help. You don’t have to wait until Tuesday!

We accept donations through mail or online through PayPal, and will put whatever is donated to good use in our programming- or you choose from the photo ideas. Our 501-C3 # is 95-3509028.
