So... there I was at a little coffee shop in Clearwater, Florida. It was full of this crazy art - I was introduced to the manager who proceeded to show me gargoyles made out of styrofoam and murals that covered the bathroom walls - there was art everywhere... art and coffee.
A beautiful thing. The owner is a woman who everybody says I have to meet - especially with my mission in life being accessibility to the arts. I wander into the kitchen and introduce myself. She already knows who I am. I haven't slept the whole way down here, but I feel this amazing energy in this place... this woman has a non profit for doing art with people and is looking for someone to run the groups. Affamato Arts has met a kindred spirit.
