    I will write you in as a character in an original horror story. Here is the beginning. What will happen next? What will you do? (I may take liberties and make you an anthropomorphic being - plant, animal, fencepost....) I will consider suggestions, like "I want to be a plant eating snail," for example. A army of snails would be interesting.

    The Plant
    Elsa walked into the tree garden as she often did in early June. Her innocent bare toes enjoyed the cool spikey feeling of grass. The peonies were budding and swelling - about to bloom. The scent of lilac freshened the air.
    Something seemed different, though. She suddenly felt as though she were cheese in a mousetrap to some alien creature. But what hungered for her? It felt close, but how silly. The only living thing near her had suddenly shot up from a single leaf last Saturday into a giant tassel-topped plant reaching 15 feet into the sky.
    The leaves - now over a dozen - reached out like fuzzy green arms. Were they recoiling? Quivering? Would this day be her last?

    Paint and sip (sparkling cider) with Joyce Kahn. Popular local artist Joyce Kahn will unleash the inner artist in you.
    Joyce Kahn is an award-winning artist, who paints colorful, expressionist
    Plein Air (outside, on location) paintings in Vermont, Monhegan Island, Maine, and wherever she is lucky enough to travel to. She made the startling discovery, after years of being in awe of artists, that an art gene is not a requirement for painting. She has taught local "Paint and Sip" groups of 24 and teaches a weekly class of dedicated pastellists. Joyce believes anyone with the desire can make art. Patience and persistence help too.
