When I started Buttermilk Road Sunday Suppers, it was an offshoot of many ideas: wanting to connect people through food, wanting to branch out of the kitchen proper and make room for my other creative endeavors (writing, namely), and lastly, to find a way to bridge the art community that I've been a part of for so many years with my career in food. I had long daydreams about doing Artist Studio Suppers, Gallery Suppers and, the tricky part, finding a way to (brace yourself..) highlight dancers (which I used to be) in our community and create a sort of fundraising opportunity for these causes through food. While I have yet to find a clever and not overwhelmingly awkward means to combine food and dance, I have started to see the first successes of sort of putting myself out there to the creative community at large. And, for any of you who have lived in Nashville long enough, you know that our creative community at large is usually an impressively fantastic cyclone surrounding the ever brilliant light that is Libby Callaway. I'm preaching to the choir, I'm sure, but it can easily be said that if you've been impressed by an event or gathering surrounding the arts in the last five years or so, Libby has somehow had her hands in it. I feel incredibly lucky to call her a friend and to live in a community that benefits from her complete capabilities. When Libby invited me to host a breakfast, of course I leapt at the chance. When I arrived at her house to discuss the details (really, we just looked at old, very handsome-like pictures of Bruce Springsteen and talked about art), I met Susan Sherrick for the second time and really had a chance to sit and visit (vs. the first time we met which was over a simple pie exchange for Thanksgiving). I quickly came to a realization that I was amongst two superbly remarkable, intelligent and hilarious women who emit the greatest energy for their work and their efforts. Susan is remarkably impressive in her own right and I left feeling an overwhelming feeling for my city that I have only had small inclinations of prior: and immense amount of excitement, hope, pride and down right giddiness for Nashville. While I have everyone's attention, I'd like to say: They don't make 'em like that Libby Callaway and Susan Sherrick lot. And, Nashville, let's keep embracing them for as long as they'll let us. They have many good things in store for us all.
