A Plethora of Creative People!

      "You can't use up creativity.  The more you use, the more you have it," said Maya Angelou.  This week we saw many creative individuals at Chautauqua and the UM House.  Rev. Otis Moss and the Trinity United Church Choir, Amy Jill Levine (Vanderbilt Univ.), Music School Festival Orchestra, the Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra, the North Carolina Dance Company and dance students, Diane Ackerman (One Hundred Names for Love), Rev. Paul Womack (Hurlbut Church), Rev. John Miller (UM House Chaplain), Blood, Sweat and Tears and many more talented people.
