Local Food on Instagram

I have been going back and forth, and around about my food presence in life and on the web. Local Food, for reasons of wellness, must change. I admit that I do resist, because I fear stepping too far away from the public pathways; not because I will be forgotten, but because it would be lonely for me. Because of my interest, I am alone much, and I love being around people and miss opportunities to do so because of this disorder. 

So, I am finding my way toward integrating Quilter's Comfort with Local Food into one presence so that I reduce the outflow of my energies.  When all is said and done, they may have a new name.  I don't know.  Quilter's Comfort is shifting focus, and that seems to be moving me toward making the business wholesale and favors only; or something else.  I do not have the ability to rush, so ideas will wait, and I will see how and what gets baked.  

My goals, out of necessity have changed, and one thing for sure is that they must come together or fall away.

Here are a few other examples of food posted to @localfoodbloomington.

Sometimes, I end up posting food  images to my art/life page @patriciaccolemanart on Instagram. 

In this letting go for wellness  is the need for what I refer to as my dome home (an environmental build). Want to know more about Turtle Dome, go to Aircrete Builds.  

I have always been a giver.  I love and appreciate many things!  Asking for help for myself, particularly when in a health crisis, is very challenging.  

Asking for assistance is another type of journey I am learning to take. 

I need your help, if you are able to help, please do.

I will appreciate any support toward my goal!  Thank you now for being here!

Thanks for reading and looking at my food!

Good Food to you!

Indiana Bee School XVII is Almost Here!

Indiana Bee School XVII

Oh Boy, it's Bee School time!!  What a super school we have planned this year.  With two outstanding speakers, you can expect the school to fill up early.  Each year we max out and disappoint those that call after the cutout.  Don’t be disappointed, register early. Cost is $35 for members and $45 for non-members. 

The Bee School will be held on February 23, 2019, at Decatur Central High School, 5251 Kentucky Avenue, Indianapolis, Indiana 46221.

Here are the directions to the school and hotels.  Folder pickup starts at 7:00 a.m. (EST), with the program starting promptly at 8:30 a.m. and concluding around 5:00 p.m.  

With wonderful local and national speakers, super topics, great lunch and hundreds of beekeepers that we haven’t seen since the previous year, we seem to get bigger and better and this year will be no exception.

Click here for the current agenda.

For the first time ever, we have two first time guest speakers for the Indiana Bee School.  Dr. Tom Seeley is from Cornell University, and Jeff Pettis is a Research Scientist with Pettis and Associates.  See "Our Guest Speaker" on the right for more information.

IU Cinema Presents "Little Woods" Directed by Nia Da Costa

IU Cinema, thinks it is critical to showcase the underrepresented work of women in film.  
Of the 103 screenings left this season, 40 are F-rated (directed and/or written by a woman). 

For this reason, we are thrilled to host writer/director Nia DaCosta in Bloomington on 1/31 and 2/1 for a screening 
of her debut feature film and an extended, on-stage interview. 

The Tribeca Film Festival calls DaCosta "a name you're gonna need to get familiar with," and we couldn't agree more! Her impressive debut feature, LITTLE WOODS, won the Nora Ephron Award for ‘spirited and bold’ storytelling at Tribeca and stars Tessa Thompson​ and Lily James. The film expertly addresses a range of timely topics including the opioid crisis, sexual violence, women’s reproductive rights, poverty, and healthcare. 

DaCosta is scheduled to be present for a Q&A after our 1/31 screening of LITTLE WOODS. Tickets are $4 for IUB students and $7 for non-students and can be purchased online here, at the IU Auditorium Box Office, or in the IU Cinema lobby beginning one hour before the film.

More Info

Her Jorgensen Guest Filmmaker Program will take place on 2/1 from 4 - 5:30pm and is FREE, no ticket required. ​

IU Cinema hopes to welcome an engaged audience for both of these events, and would love it if you would help us spread the word. Please feel free to use any of this information in your own outreach, and please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions.  Thank you and best wishes,
