Today, in our first episode of 2022, a reminder that it’s never too late to start something new, including art-making! My two guests, Nancy Jensen, 76, and Rosemary Molloy, 83, tell how, though their interest in art was thwarted in their youth, that interest has lately been bearing fruit in their senior years as they draw, paint, make collages, and generally express themselves creatively however they darn well please! I know you’ll find them as inspiring as I did. And speaking of inspirations, I’d like to thank those of you who donated to WESU’s recent pledge drive. We made our goal with dollars to spare! Clearly you get it – that it’s listeners like you who put the community in community radio! If you didn’t get around to giving and want to show the station some love for creating a space for this kind of unusual programming, you still can. Just go to wesufm.org/pledge. Thanks! Now let’s hear my Zoom chat with Nan and Ro, whose artwork can be seen below.
