Musician and film-industry veteran Rob Chidester grew up in Baton Rouge, Louisianna. He’s got the culture of that state in his blood, but has worked all over the country art directing films, producing music videos, and serving as an impresario for creative people and projects. This week he landed in Sedona as one of the first artists in residence at the Sedona Summer Colony.

Rob grew up across the lake from the Louisiana State University Campus. He was introduced to theater in Ms. Shirley Pourciau’s drama class at Robert E. Lee High School and later he attended LSU Theater School where he founded the comedy troupe, The Humoroids that hosted weekly comedy show.

Perhaps you have been feeling like nothing was moving forward in life as you would have liked. In fact, people or things may have been depleted of energy or life force. Every delay or issue may have shown up…’to everything there is a season and a reason for everything under the sun.’

Back in April, two intense, powerful planets, which have a great deal to do with generating our energy, ditched their forward movement, in favor of slowing down, then getting some shut eye, plunging themselves, and us all, into what seems like a stopping motion. Do you remember noticing that in April? Read on to know what is happening now!

Monday, June 20 much happened, and the taste is long lasting. So many ingredients; it’s a soup we’ve never tasted and here’s a sample.

The first ingredient we start with was the full moon. Did you see it as it was reaching capacity; looking decidedly raspberry in color? In Europe it used to be called the Full Rose Moon.

The Raspberry Full Moon was a signal to the Algonquin tribe that it was time to gather ripening fruit. What have you planted and will it be sour or delicious? You are the gardener of your life; has it been delicious?

Sedona Arts Center is calling for new gallery artists, and encourages local creative people to apply. The Fine Art Gallery, located in Uptown Sedona, greets 2500 visitors each month, and sells all forms of visual art—from textiles and jewelry to bronze sculpture, photography, craft objects, painting and ceramics. The Arts Center’s current gallery roster comprises 110 of the regions most interesting and productive artists, who are supported and promoted year-round. 

Every year we have a New Moon in Gemini, meaning fun! Whoopee! There is a theme to this year’s party and I’ll fill you in.
