>But there was a ray of sunshine in the day too.

I stopped by Operation Stand Down Nashville to drop off that organization’s proceeds raised during my art show last month.  Bill Burleigh, executive director, wasn’t there, but I rounded up a staffer to capture the above pic.  It was exhilirating seeing my mixed media piece front and center in the lobby, right near the main entrance to the offices!  I think the painting fits just perfectly there and am so proud they do too! 

If you don’t know about this organization, it offers a myriad of services year round to veterans, and over one weekend each October, runs a “stand down” event providing shelter, food, clothing, medical, legal, job and other services to homeless veterans in Middle Tennessee.  I happened upon the organization in 2005 when I was a reporter for the local newspaper.  I have continued to volunteer as my time has allowed, since that time.  Love the organization, management, and vets it serves!

About Maura Satchell, contemporary artist and writer

Contemporary artist, seeker, writer. Curious to a fault. I let the fates take me and never say no to an adventure. That has led me on some heart-stirring journeys. I regret nothing.
