CentralPerspective: Daydreaming

I used to spend hours dreaming of what I hoped the future would hold for me. In recent years, my focus has been so acutely aligned with building that future that I haven’t been afforded the luxury to spend time in those thoughts, musing over what might and what will be. Yesterday, I caught myself experiencing that feeling again just for a moment. And although the feeling was ephemeral, it reminded me of the value that daydreaming can hold. When I realized how special the moment was, I took this snapshot to preserve the memory…

Danville Symphony Pops This Holiday Season

by Mia Brantley Brooks

Holiday traditions, we all have them. Some folks bake cookies, some decorate a tree; some watch certain films just once a year. I have a few traditions of my own, for instance I make a fruit salad that if missing from the table one year, might incite an entire family to mutiny. One tradition that makes Danville a great place this time of year is the Holiday Pops Concert presented by the Danville Symphony Orchestra. This year, they could proudly boast a more than 20 years of providing culture and entertainment to our community. It’s a Danville fixture now, and I’m sure mutiny would cross more than one mind if they decided to cancel it even once.
