Go Whitewater Rafting

There is an exciting fun summer activity that I was a little reluctant to try, but am glad I did. Whitewater rafting is so much fun. Of course having a guide to help you down the river and through the rapids makes things safer than setting off on your own so we got ourselves a guide. Mike was a fun guide and told us things about the river and the surrounding area. In the Smoky Mountains there are many rivers to enjoy the sport of whitewater rafting. It is something I want to do over and over again!
I am third (back of picture in yellow) on the right side of the boat that looks like its down in the water, next to Mike the guide. Yes, I yelled through all the rapids it was so much fun! What a great time!

Help out with a project to build a 2-story cardboard house...

The Lucky Penny (Blake Beckham and Melina Rodrigues) along with many volunteers, are working on a project at Georgia Tech called Threshold, a two-story house made out of cardboard to provide a dance space for a contemporary dance. The composer is Santigo Paramo and the dancers are all so very wonderful! The architects (Mack Scogin and Merril Elam) are working to help build this two-story cardboard house with the help of volunteers.
I have never helped out with a project that involves so many interesting elements. It was a joy to be there today to see all the enthusiasm and commitment everyone brings to this project! The show will run from August the 16th through August the 19th, so be sure and try and see it if you live in Atlanta.
