Aaahhhh, The face to face hat.
This hat might be my favorite.
What do you do that makes you feel like you are on the right track to life? What do you do that makes you feel like life has some sort of meaning? For me, it's Face to Face. Face to Face doesn't pay any bills, it sucks lots of my time, sometimes it sucks money, it keeps me from getting enough sleep and it's jacked up my social net work, which can be a good thing or a bad thing. To me the funny thing is that none of those things matter because even though I might get less sleep, I now have some very very close friends In Greensboro people I consider family. It may not pay any bills, but I get to have lots of exciting conversations that make me think. And a lot of times we throw back some beers while we are at it. Who said running a non-profit couldn't be fun? And maybe, just maybe we are making Greensboro a better place to live while we are at it.
What are you so very passionate about that you will loose sleep over? Or what do you love so much that you will let other pieces of your life fall apart so that you can spend another hour or day working on that thing? I hope that you have something like that in your life. I hope that you have something that makes you so excited you can't wait to get out of bed. I'm really lucky to have many things that interest me and keep me going, but right now above all, I believe it's Face to Face that makes my wheels turn.
Have you heard of us? Are you one of us? Maybe you are a facer and you don't even know it?
You may wonder what we are? What our mission is? And what exactly it is that we are doing. Not to worry. We've got time, and I'll tell you all about our crazy shenanigans... all in good time... all in good time my friends.
For now I'd like to ask you to come out to our next event on Thursday of next week.
The Soapbox Salon: Lee Walton's Search for the Most Average Bowlers
An Evening of Free Bowling and Social Practice
Thursday, February 25, 2010
7:30pm - 10:00pm
AMF All Star Lanes
910 South Holden Road
Artist and professor Lee Walton helps us to explore the art of Social Practice, a new Californian art movement that creates art far away from the four walls of museums and galleries and makes it happen in and around us. So join us for an evening of FREE bowling as we search for the most average bowlers. Afterward Lee will give a talk helping us make sense of this new art form and how we can apply it in our everyday lives, perhaps transforming the "mundanery" of everyday life into collective, meaningful happenings in the community.
Come check us out! I'd love to see what you think. And don't worry, I'll be telling you more about this thing I love, this crazy thing called face to face. I hope that you'll love us as much as I do.
