A place to show my love for my granddaughter who lives with Cerebral Palsy and my passion for painting. In an effort of raising awareness for C.P. every painting brush stroke I make on raw canvas is a stroke of love, as I discretely paint a green C.P. awareness ribbon in every piece. Can you find them?
Do you know someone who would like to have a painting done? email www.harrold.janet@gmail.com

Hailey's Dance

For over 5 years now Meghan, Founder of Impact Dance Co.and best friend of Natalie has had visions of Hailey inspired dancers in her head. Within the first few times she met Hailey she fell in love with her. Being the creative dancer that she is Meghan couldn’t help but be inspired by Hailey’s uniqueness, by her quirky movements, her smile, her grace, her total sweetness. She just new that she had to show the world her vision, the way she see’s Hailey. She wanted to open the minds and the hearts of everyone who knows Hailey and even the people out there who don’t yet know her.
It was almost a year ago when Meghan invited us to her studio and showed us what her dancers had been working on. Before that day her dancers had only studied Hailey in short video clips. A dance was choreographed by the short snippets they viewed and I thought it was absolutely beautiful. Hailey in typical Hailey fashion watched their every move with her photographic memory, and to our amazement, after the music stopped and started again, Hailey dropped to the floor and started to copy their moves as if dictating to them how it should have been done. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room, that is except for Hailey who soulfully danced as if she was in charge. The dancers instinctively followed her lead and even tried to “W” sit the way that Hailey’s hip sockets allow her sit. After a lot of hard work and fundraising this magical evening is finally here, you wont want to miss it! The performance is in a black box theatre in with 150 seats for 2 nights. Friday Nov. 23rd and Saturday Nov. 24th both performances are at 8:00 p.m. The Green St Theatre (2nd floor) 185 Green Street Cambridge MA Tickets $20 for seats $10 for mat seating ( Suggested for children and students.)
