Finding Calm & Inspiration from the Past (August 30 – September 5)

Are you seeking calm patterns in your life? Are you tired of all of the jolt shocks from too many reality checks? The rhythms of life manifest in many forms, from rippling streams to our own heartbeats and so wedged between nature and our personal souls we find the rhythms that we create from inspiration. Our music, our prose, our poetry, when dusted off from the past, can stimulate abounding calm consistency. It’s time for a Puccini, Prose and Poetry dinner party. It will shake off any unpleasantry of the status quo and shine a light to our inner glow – learning. Ask family members to select their favorite prose or poetry to read excerpts that evening. Designate the readers as before dinner, during dinner, and after dinner. An impact of authenticity can be added by reading any of the classics by candlelight. Focus the discussions on the themes, the protagonists, the antagonists, or cathartic insight. Play the background music of Giacomo Puccini’s masterpieces from La boheme, Madama Butterfly, Tosca, or the composition Nessun dorma. As the meal is served, dedicate each course to the featured writers and artisans such as Hugo’s Seafood Starter, Robert Burns’ Scottish Grouse or Wordsworth’s Gingerbread Cake. The moment will be made most memorable by reinforcing the theme into the dynamics of the evening. If your dinner party gathering is comprised of all adults, add Pinot to the alliteration titling, making the event a Puccini, Prose, Poetry & Pinot Party. It’s all about reading, reciting, and listening to trigger unintended great insights – By reaching into the past, we enable ourselves to go far beyond the status quo. © Kelly McBride Loft
