Dear Honey Run Friends,
On November 1, 1512, Michelangelo Buonarroti shared his creation with the world in the Sistine Chapel. The sheer size and magnitude of the works of art he created over a four year period at immense physical and emotional cost is breathtaking and admirable. I do not have an artistic bone in my body and yet I have always been drawn with great appreciation for those who have been blessed with such talent. My closest friends are of the creative fields with a wide array of artistic genres completing their portfolios. The art itself has an immediate emotional pull as my eyes soak in the colors, shapes, and textures, but the back-story of the artist and their inspiration has always been the piece that completes the work of art for me. I find it fascinating that Michelangelo was a sculptor by trade and not the first choice for the commission of the Sistine Chapel. His counterpart and enemy Raphael declined the opportunity and even recommended Michelangelo knowing that he was a sculptor and not a painter. Raphael’s plan to embarrass Michelangelo backfired. Michelangelo was not a humble man by all accounts and was difficult to know, yet of all of his creations from sculpture, painting, poetry, and architecture, he only signed one of his masterpieces in 88 years; Pietà.
While we all do not have the same talent of Michelangelo we all possess great talent. We were all created with talents and our challenge while on this journey of life is to figure out how to implement our talents in our surroundings to benefit our peers. As each of us excels we as a common community succeed together. Our entire team is striving to use their talents to prepare an experience like no other for you at Honey Run. Our entire property is a work of art that has been created for you and is waiting for you to come and be emotionally moved by its colors, shapes, textures, and service. I hope to see you at Honey Run soon as you create your own personalized Honey run experience and masterpiece.
