Y’all, I am so, so, so excited!
As you may know, I’ve pledged to use 20% of any writing, website, or consulting money to support artists and the arts. I’ve finally been able to take my first step toward that pledge. I did say I liked to give away stuff, and I’m finally able to do just that.
Little steps, right?
The first piece is a signed 2019 calendar by photographer Alex North.
Mr. North’s photographs capture the spirit of Mississippi—and especially the Gulf Coast—that so desperately need to be shared. I had the opportunity to shake his hand and thank him for his work. In response, he said something to the effect of “We are blessed to live here. I just show how the Gulf Coast should be seen.”
Humble, that guy.
I had a lump in my throat as I told him that we very much needed to be reminded of the beauty that resides here. It’s the beauty of Mississippi without acrimony, without divisiveness. It’s the beauty that is simply whole and pure.
His vision is gorgeous, and he’s doing another show on December 31 at the Biloxi Visitor’s Center at 1050 Beach Blvd., Biloxi, MS from 8 am – 5pm.
So, to enter the giveaway, you need to do this:
1. Go to Alex North’s website: https://www.naturallynorth.net/
2. Describe in the comments below one of the photographs from his page and leave me a way to get in touch with you.
3. That’s it!
The winner will be chosen by 12/22. I’ll announce the winner on 12/22, and it be mailed on 12/24. A little late for a Christmas present, but it should be there in time to start the New Year.
Oh yeah. This giveaway is open only to those in the contiguous United States. This time, anyway.
