Stuck in Bermuda
by Karen Phillips Curran
Winds water and wild weather have me ‘trapped’ here in Bermuda. The isolation of the island is intense, we are further from the reset of the world, here, than almost anywhere else in the world. Only in times of bad weather is it an issue. The rest of the time, it is a blessing.
I have been in Bermuda for about a month now, painting in Featherbed Studio in St George’s, recharging my Bermuda battery as it were, and teaching the art of watercolour to some wonderful people, beginners and those with some experience, through a marvelous organisation called the BSoA (Bermuda Society of the Arts) Their residence is at city Hall in Hamilton. A wonderful space with the National Gallery just down the hall. I also have spent time passing on my accululated knowledge and expertise to the Bermuda Drama and Music Society (BMDS). They are a keen goup of theatre aficiaonados with a lovely little theatre space in downtown Hamilton. All over the island I am met with the joy of creating. Wonderful!
I was not destined to leave on schedule and so am enjoying the downtime afforded me by winds, weather, and the most marvellous sea air!
I will await that great goddess of serendipity to direct the path…..
