“In hard times, beauty can seem frivolous – but take it away, and all you’re left with is hard times” — Paul Madonna
I went to view Paul Madonna at the Lafayette Library. He came to present his new book, “Close Enough to The Angels” and his process as an artist and as a writer. I originally was drawn to that book because the cover art was Thai. Come to find out that the book takes place in both SF and Thailand and the illustrations are stunning. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to his presentation and I was so grateful that the Lafayette Library Foundation brought this talented artist to it’s schedule. This presentation was free (a $5 donation was appreciated).
It took me nearly 4 years to realize all that NorCal has to offer with culture. Culture and beauty is available around you at little to no costs. Definitely check your local library’s schedule of events.
