My friend Sam has touched and inspired me in ways no other friend has in all my years on this earth. She’s just a little old lady who happens to be an amazingly creative person. She embodies the word artist. Her life is making art - for decade after decade. In two and three dimensions. She lives and breathes imagination. An artist HAS to make art - that’s Sam.

We’ve talked about Random Acts of Kindness (RAK). Let’s talk about this idea again. I think about the ‘old timers’ on the coast and what that meant for them. I truly believe it was an essential part of their life to depend on neighbors and community. June is full of good times on the coast. How about a walk on pristine land at Jenner in the morning, an afternoon music performance at the Timber Cove Resort with Kyle, a browse through the Gualala Arts exhibit halls, dinner at one of the wonderful places to eat in Gualala or Point Arena, and an evening performance at the Theater. Stay overnight at the Lighthouse in one of the Coast Guard cottages or the Bryan B Preserve cottages.

Monte Rio has seen natural disaster before but this flood was a Big One. While many escaped unscathed, there were businesses and homes that experienced severe damage. But our community spirit is strong and we come together to help one another in times such as these.

Post-flood, a Guerneville artist and gallery owner has rediscovered the power of art as a tool for healing. “Being in a creative space opens the mind (and body) to new possibilities and hope which is of immeasurable value during stressful times,” says Douglas DeVivo.
