This blog is a window seat peek into the things that bring me joy. I desire to encourage, educate and edify all those who stop by.
Ain't I a Woman
Pearl of Great Price
I was on a conference call when a group of kids rang my doorbell. After the call was finished I went to the door. They asked if they could use my gazebo for the surprise they had for me. I sort of already knew they were planning something (lol). I was presented with a concert in the high heat of the day. I tried to get them to wait until the sun went down, but they were so excited and it had been so difficult to get everyone together. So Dugan (my dog) and I got some water and sat in the hot blazing sun as they set up the 'stage'.
2 Kool Kats
2 cool 4 words
Make the beat with your feet
Dugan is grooving too (lol)
I got skills Miss Tina!
I will make lo with these photos (there are several more), but I had to share. The children drew pictures, made decorations and wrote three songs. The first one was called "Friends" it was a ballad. The second one was a rap called "Chicken Wing" and the third one was called "Summer Vacation", a rock song if I ever heard one (lol). I was so pleased with their organization and cooperation. I can see little drama kings and queens in the making. I cannot wait to get them in one of my drama classes. This was a nice concert and I hope they perform it for other folks in the neighborhood.
ROCK ON, DUDE!
Afterwards we all drank water and juice to cool off. This was a nice break.
My name is Tina. I am a teacher, writer, dramatist, storyteller and crafter. Although, I studied computer science in college, I soon discovered that I was better at being creative than I was at being technical.
In 1997 I started the PARABLES Drama Ministry. Through the PARABLES I have been able to share the gospel of Jesus Christ through dramatic expression. I have had the opportunity to perform and direct in many venues; including street theater.
I like to cook, craft, sew and make jewelry. Hence, God is prompting me to include these interests as He is birthing PARABLES Productions and Events; an education company where we teach by using dramatic expression, stories and interactive instruction. Teaching creative subjects allows me to show others how to collaborate, communicate, create and exude confidence. In addition to theater related activities; there is now a venue to teach creative subjects like sewing, cooking and crafting. I host events where I simply teach lessons and skills that I have learned over the years; hence these events are called "Pass-it-on Parties." Now that's passion turned profession!
