“May the morning sun sing to you: you are worthy of new beginnings.
May an extra hour of sleep reveal to you: you are worthy of rest.
May a text from a friend you haven’t heard from in a while remind you: someone does care.
May the song lyric that speaks to your soul remind you: you are not alone.
May every day remind you: even in the smallest shapes, there is room to practice gratitude.”
-Morgan Harper Nichols
November is a special time to give thanks – no matter how big or small, we must find meaning in it all. This Thanksgiving, I am thankful for continuing my days with purpose. Whether my time is spent peacefully with loved ones or busy with my career, I always feel a sense of gratitude.
I feel blessed to be in my role as Director of Outreach and Development for the Pawleys Island Festival of Music and Art (PIFMA). I am excited that PIFMA’s fall festival and our many outreach programs have once again been able to thrive – that our community and those visiting were given the opportunity to enjoy live music again and that our local students can now continue to interact and learn from our talented artists, live and in person. Everyone deserves to experience the arts!
I am also graciously fortunate for a whole year of working with my Sasee team, the many gifted writers we publish, and the multitude of inspiring locals I have had the pleasure of interviewing. One article, in particular, you do not want to miss reading in this month’s issue is about Bambi Bullard, in honor of Veterans Day.
Sasee hopes you have a blissful Thanksgiving, overflowing with love, gratitude, and of course, tasty food!
