Evening of Grace

Years ago, Spirit created and gave to me the opportunity to share an EVENING OF GRACE (EOG) with others.

An EOG is a wonderful, intimate event that brings us together to share in the exploration and experience of how and when we are able to hold Grace, and when we are not.

Grace is defined as our ability to stay in non-judgement of situations, of others and of ourselves.

As we come together and put our attention on Grace we bring that energy into our local and global world. Through the Oneness that is, the work we do for us, we do for all.

As we are energy in form, I will share a teaching on Grace, and then lead us through a discussion where we share our stories and how and when we are able to hold ourselves and others in non-judgement, and when we are not. We then explore where we are on our own Grace list.

We close with a guided Kabbalistic meditation that will provide you and your community with the experience of your own Grace.

Approximately 1,500 to 2,000 of the 24,000 eligible students will receive meals during a part of the summer provided through the USDA programs. The remaining 22,000 are left to make other arrangements.”

325ZeroHunger is working with seven (7) elementary and middle schools in our geographic area and will make sure that our food contributions are distributed to those children and families in need in our area. We encourage you to bring several food contributions for this wonderful charity. The following food items would be greatly appreciated by families this organization serves: Pasta, Pasta Sauce (in a can, not glass), Rice, Canned Beans, Canned Chicken, Canned Tuna, Chili, Ravioli, Peanut Butter, Cereal, Oatmeal, Grits.

Artist of the Month February 2020: Talis Jayme



Talis Jayme has made her home here on Perdido Key and claims that "One can't help but be inspired by paradise. The beauty is breath taking and leaves one in awe." While focusing on watercolor and acrylic, Talis also has plenty of pastels, limited edition prints and note cards - just to mention a few. Having studied with such nationally recognized artists as Edgar Whitney, Talis' works have gained the respect of a wide audience and has works hanging in private and corporate collections throughout the United States and abroad. Join her on February 15th for her "Meet the Artist". Meeting Talis in person is most definitely a charming experience.

AWARD WINNING AUTHOR AT ARTWORKS STUDIO & GALLERY


Award winning author M.M. LeBlanc will sign and read from her book, “Paradise Stolen”, the third and final volume of an historical fiction series "Evangeline, the True Story of the Cajuns" on Sunday, February 2, 2020 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Artworks Studio & Gallery at Villagio Town Centre, 13700 Perdido Key Drive, on Perdido Key.  For more details contact Talis at 850-261-9617.

Winner of 6 book awards, this final volume in the thrilling saga of betrayal, intrigue, loss and hope, tells of the journey of the French Acadians and star-crossed lovers Evangeline and Gabriel.  It follows them from France to Acadia/Nova Scotia and to their exile throughout the Colonies, Europe and the Caribbean, ultimately reuniting in Louisiana.

Separated and scattered to the winds in 1755, the lives and fates of ten families intertwine from King Louis XV and nobles to commoners in the exciting conclusion telling the true story of the Acadians, the ancestors of the Cajuns.

This book is based on the true story of the author's ancestors, including RenĂ© Le Blanc, featured in the famous poem ‘Evangeline, A Tale of Acadie’ by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

M. M. Le Blanc is a multi-award-winning author of sixteen books of fiction and non-fiction and numerous award-winning screenplays. Her trilogy Evangeline: Paradise Stolen has won six book awards and was selected as an Official Gift Selection for VIP filmmakers at the Sundance International Film Festival. Her film, Cajun Renaissance Man, was an Official Selection at international film festivals in Cannes, Montreal, New York, New Orleans, Chicago and many others, and won the “Audience Favorite Film” Award. Le Blanc is a frequent speaker at historical and genealogical conferences as well as film festivals from Cannes to China. 

Le Blanc was selected one of the “Top Ten Working Women in America,” and was awarded an international Writing Fellowship from the Fondation d’Art Paris-New York and is a member of the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
