The name "Book Club" has a quaint ring to it, like "Garden Club" or "Ladies Guild". My book club, however has a much deeper meaning to me. It has been a lifeline of friendship and companionship for the members of the group and myself.
Life in a "resort" area in the off-season can be a lonely and isolating experience especially if you have young children at home. Book Club has helped me to feel more a part of a community of people who chose to live out here by the sand and water. One of my friends from Book Club wrote a song for/about us. It is a wonderful portrayal of the importance of friendship in our lives. I was inspired to make a painting for/about them.
