#Narrowsburg #HoneyBee Festival River Rock Bee Childrens Art and Crafts

Based on my love of nature and a lifelong recurring relationship with Honey Bees, I absolutely wanted to bee part of the first Narrowsburg Honey Bee Festival. I contacted Joan Santo of Narrowsburg Fine Wines and Spirits as soon as I heard about the festival and volunteered for the Children’s Arts and Crafts project which turned into one of the most enjoyable honeybee experiences to date!

A huge thank you to the gentleman who volunteered to take many of the images of the children’s project and also to Courtney and all of the parents and grandparents who assisted with the stripes, glue dots and googly eyes… River Rock Bees ruled the day!
So.. here are my favorite photos from the first Narrowsburg Honey Bee Festival on October 10, 2015:

Ice flowing on the Delaware River - Narrowsburg, NY 4.04.15

My morning view on April 4th. Very powerful alignments with Full Moon Eclipse this morning.
I opened the blinds and the ice is flowing, sun shining and wind is blowing.
Spring is definitely in the air!

What story will you be telling in 10 years?

I’m writing from my studio with an absolutely priceless view overlooking the Big Eddy on the Delaware River. Early on this September morning I woke to the sounds of geese practicing their travel honks and flight formations.  The fish were joyfully leaping out of the river and a small flock of ducks was out for […]
