It’s interesting how friendships evolve. The first thing I remember about Kitty is the cards she sent me. When I found out she made them, I knew I wanted to have her work in my Gallery at the Open House.
But it took a couple of years for that to happen and for us to get to know each other and realize that we have many connections, some that I wouldn’t have dreamed.
The most surprising to me is Bellydancing. Something I never really thought too much about. Kitty is one of the founders of Bennington Beledi Tribal Bellydance, the group I now take lessons with. She no longer dances with them, but because of Kitty it looks like we’re going to have a Bellydance Performance at the Open House on Sunday.
Yesterday at lunch, Kitty showed me one of the signed prints she’s going to be selling at the Open House in October. They are prints of her original drawings and I’ll have about six framed prints and packs of her notecards to sell.
After lunch, Kitty came back to the farm to figure out a good place for the Sahidi Sisters to perform. We’re thinking of the back porch, which from a certain angle actually seems stage-like.
The idea of the Sahidi Sister’s Bellydancing on the back porch is thrilling to me. Like a blessing.
It’s not a sure thing yet, but if they do come the Sahidi Sister’s will be at the Open House on Sunday afternoon.
