Pictures Of Our Lives and Times

Subject: High School Art Show

The crowds build as the doors open for the annual High School Art Show and we show a tiny sample of those works which our camera liked.

This is not a slice of cheesecake but a piece of ceramic art by Hannah Zimmerman which first caught our camera person's eye.

And nearby was a watercolor by Angel Bautista called, what else?, 'Psychedelic'.

A photo work by Suzy Hettich, called 'Purple', shows us what can be done with artistic taste, imagination and Photoshop.

This is a fine example of a silkscreen which it's artist, Kevin Klein, calls 'Flamenco Dancer'.

A unique wire figure of 'Man Holding Man Holding Man' by Hunter Yegendorf stands alone in a sea of wall art and ceramics.

There were hundreds of entries, a surprising number of exceptional quality, but we must close and we do so with a watercolor by Frances Knapp entitled, 'My Face Hurts Because It Is Melting' chosen because it's a great original and it's descriptive of a good deal of life lately and... we couldn't resist the pushpins.

About theCOOLgroup.org

If you let your cursor hover for a second or two over the Church names to the left, a short explanation of each church's basis will be revealed.* Ranging from fundamentally conservative to more liberal-thinking philosophies, our underlying belief is the Golden Rule, which is golden enough to have been around for over 2500 years. But mindful of how sick or evil minds can twist even the Golden Rule to bad purposes, we add the admonition:

"First do no harm.
Then, do some good."

Evolution of COOL: After we named our four churches, we started to refer to them by acronyms. One of them came out COOL. We liked that so much we reworked the other three to have the COOL acronym. The next step was to call our cool group of churches The COOL Group with the web address TheCOOLgroup.org, which is where you find us today.

"People will accept your ideas much more readily if you tell them Benjamin Franklin said it first."

"Inside the Great Mystery that is, we don't really own anything. What is this competition we feel then, before we go, one at a time, through the same gate?"


"I never think that there's something I can't do, whether it's beating my opponent one on one or practicing another hour because something about my game is just not right."
