We make and do. That is our trade.
Women have always made.
Folk are almost wistful now, as they chase time for themselves. It is the great elusive prize. The jackpot. Today our artists will remember the time and space they created the work they share with us today, and what elements infused their art.
Our cake artist binds the ingredients. The sweetness. The coming together.
Our writers and poets, musicians gather up the world and give it to us in story and song. Bits of their own story, bits of everyone elses.
Songs from the middle of the night. Stories that wouldn’t quit. Ideas, ingredients, alchemy.
