SPARK change

I suggest you get to know Spark Central, nestled in the West Central community in Kendall Yards. Their mission statement is inspiring; "Igniting the creativity, innovation, and imagination necessary for people to forge the path to their best future." Wow, just wow.  I've attended a few writer workshops there And I am looking forward to frequenting this passionate place more often. This is a place for world changers to gather, get supported, encouraged and prepped to launch.  I was honored to attend their recent Benefit & Paddle Raise. I was nervous about meeting the guest speakers as I've been know to get starstruck amongst authors. I'm not even sure what I said during the book signing. Hopefully I didn't gush too much. It was a pretty cool night.  BTW I think a signed book is to be treasured. 📚

A Sneak Peek Steals & Deals: Don't let anyone dull your sparkle. Adore this shiny copper pillow I discovered at Target for, wait for it....$5!  I'm Spring Cleaning and fixing up the old blog. I'll be adding 3 new features and although this post features a couldn't-pass-up target pillow there will be a large emphasis on #LOCAL
1) #Covet&Crave will spotlight all that is crush worthy. Yes, they'll be some splurges featured here but a hey, the girls gotta dream.
2) #Steals&Deals will feature impossible finds such as this shiny little (dare I say cheap) attention getter pillow. I'm sure I'll be reviewing bottles from the rocketmarket's "Great Wines under $10" shelve. Seriously, those hand selected wines are a for sure thing. Thanks Matthew Dolan!
3) #MakeMineLive will promote live events. I'm convinced life is meant to be experienced in person. I'll continue with my envious WestCoast Entertainment gig covering the touring Broadw…

MLK the dream revisited

Martin Luther King Jr. (1929-1968) was an Baptist minister and activist who was a leader in the Civil Rights Movement. He is best known for his role in the advancement of civil rights using nonviolent civil disobedience based on his Christian beliefs. 
Today we honor his life, character and ideals by marching for equality. His words remain true and just. Love was the driving force. 
The following MLK quotes are timeless in the pursuit of love and equality. 
"Faith is taking the first step even when you can't see the whole staircase." 
"There comes a time when silence is betrayal." 
"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter." 
"In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends." 
"Only in the darkness can you see the stars."
"If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving …

It's show season and lucky you, Broadway is being delivered to the Spokane stage. The season starts with Pippin National Tour: January 12-15, 2017 in Spokane, WA This BIG show incorporates sassy Bob Fosse style choreography in and thrilling acrobatics. The big top set and high-flying action add to the spectacle, along with the knife throwing, hula hooping and gravity-defying balancing acts. The magical score from Oscar and Grammy-winning songwriter Stephen Schwartz (Godspell, Wicked), which includes such hits as “Magic to Do,” “Corner of the Sky,” “Morning Glow” and “No Time at All”, brings the enchanted story of PIPPIN to life in this tale of a young prince’s search for passion, adventure and the meaning of life.
SHOW PAIRING : A BIG show deserves a BIG wine. Stop by Barrister Winery Tasting Room, nestled by Auntie's Bookstore in the Liberty Building for a glass of the remarkable Cab Franc.
A-not-to-miss show. Reserve your seat and I'll see you at the thee-tah. #makeminelive…
