Eco-Faith Candlelight Vigil Supporting Pope Francis @ Taos Plaza, NM 9/23/2015
“All faiths call for environmental and economic justice. Let’s put aside what divides us and come together in candlelight to pray and commit ourselves to earth-honoring actions, even as we –along with Pope Francis in Washington, DC–call upon our leaders to do the same! September 23 is also Yom Kippur, an important Holy Day of fasting and atonement for Jews. So let’s all atone for our mistakes and excesses, and seek ways to change our lives so we may be more sustainable.”
I’ve now had the privilege, no… honor, to watch the drama class at Taos High School perform The Crucible, twice.
After watching the 1996 movie with Winona Ryder and Daniel Day-Lewis, I can honestly say that I was a bit concerned. This movie is based upon the amazing play, written by Arthur Miller. This is a very dramatic story that has you in tears and also can bring up more stronger emotions like anger and fear.
THS did an excellent job at portraying all of these emotions. These “kids” did a top notch job at capturing the audience and engulfing them in the story as if we were all truly there.
I was given permission by the, clearly talented drama teacher Mr Overley, to take photos of a practice.
There are two shows left, Oct 31 and Nov 1 at 7pm.
I can not recommend seeing this show enough! Not only will the $10 admission fee go towards their next performance in the Spring but it will show the immense support for such a fantastic program.

I had the privilege of being featured (again) in The Taos Rag – a humorous publication from Taos, New Mexico.
