"This year I was challenged to do a project or put onan event with aspects of both entrepreneurship and community service," said. Tomaselli. ' "I've grown up in Plumas County's arts culture, following my father to gigs as a kid. It's a culture of family and friendship, cultivating minds young and old, and instilling a sense of adventure in all of us who are lucky enough to be in its light. This is why I've chosen to host an open mic. My goal is a night of great music, "Great music, great friends and great vibes," are the goals for Georgia's Open Mic, set for Friday in Quincy. Photo courtesy Plumas Arts great friends and great vibes." T ' his event is being sponsored by Plumas Arts, and snacks will be served with the help of the ladies at Young's Market in Taylorsv ille. For more information, contact Tomaselli at georgia.tomaselli(,)yahoo corn or 616-134l). TO NANCY SEPTEMBER 15, 200,5 (Finally able to share.) I take my daily walk along the street And think of all the things we used to say When you and I, to make our walk complete, Would comment on the sights along the way. Today, I sometimes talk aloud to you With words that fly away but find no ears To share my thoughts or sense a sob or two: They fade into the woods and no one hears. But then, because we shared so much so long, I sometimes hear your answer in the breeze Which mingles softly with my mournful song That echoes in the canyon through the trees. You may not hear, you may not see, but you are there To fill my empty space and save me from despair.
