letter from the

editor

As a life-long student and professional educator nothing brings me more joy than to learn and to share that knowledge with others. The arts can be an extraordinary vehicle for education and multicultural understanding, as well as a source of beauty and inspiration. Covering Irina Negulescu’s paintings I learned that in communist Romania, where she grew up, painters had access to only three primary colors: red, blue, and yellow. By writing about “Welcome to Ramallah” the play written by Jewish playwrights Sonja Linden and Adah Kay, I learned that during the creation of Israel hundreds of thousands of Palestinians were expelled from their homes and villages and forced into ever shrinking territory. I learned that there are two sides to the story of Palestinians and Israelies, and that Palestinians have suffered tremendously and continue to suffer to this day. Talking to Gretchen Burns Bergman of Gretchen Productions, I learned that combining theatre, dance, music and choreography is the best way to create exciting and successful fashion shows, and she has been doing it in San Diego for over thirty years. Farrowtone taught me how important it is to stay true to your roots and be proud of where you come from, even as you promote yourself on a national arena as a musician. Everyone featured, whether they contribute an article, a photograph or an ad has something to teach and I am eager to learn. I hope you are too.
