Lit with Love at poetic gathering
Have a candle lit for your child at Sweet Pea Project's to linger on hot coals poetic gathering this March.
As you may have heard, Sweet Pea Project founder Stephanie Paige Cole and poet/professor Catherine Bayly have teamed up to create a book of poetry entitled to linger on hot coals. The collection contains pieces from some of the the most beautiful and powerful voices of our community, and we are so excited for its release in just a few weeks. You can visit www.tolingeronhotcoals.com or the facebook page for details, reviews and updates. https://www.facebook.com/hotcoalspoetry?ref=hl We'll be sharing more about it soon.
To celebrate this lovely little book, Sweet Pea Project will be hosting a poetic gathering and community reception at Mulberry Art Studios on March 8. As we have done in the past (at Beauty in the Breakdown and Five) we plan to fill the gallery space with candles, each bearing the name of a beloved baby, so that the room is filled with their light, lit by our love for them.
For those of us who have suffered through the death of a baby, the glowing light of the candles will be a reminder of their short but precious lives and a tribute to our love for them. And it will surely move those who have not experienced such a loss to walk into a room and see how our love still burns for our unseen children.
During the month of January, anyone who makes a donation in any amount to Sweet Pea Project will have a candle placed in the gallery in honor of their child. This includes donations made for the Winter Book Drive. Contributions may be sent by check to the address at the bottom of this post, or be made securely online with a credit card or paypal account at www.sweetpeaproject.org/donate/paypal. Please be sure to include your child's name when you submit your donation.
Please feel free to contact me at Stephanie@sweetpeaproject.org with any questions at all. Thank you for your support of Sweet Pea Project, and for the honor of including your beautiful child in this exhibit.
