Festival of Nations
It’s never too early to start making plans for spring! As we gear up for a long, cold winter (unless
current temperature trends hold, that is!), it’s nice to think about making plans for the spring. Next March is the 8th Annual Festival of Nations at the Weirton Area Museum and Cultural Center. The festival is a celebration of unity and diversity, bringing together many nationalities with food, dance and music. The event is brought together with some serious hard work by Silk Screen friends Juginder and Dolly Luthra. Juginder and Dolly frequently travel the hour to Pittsburgh for Silk Screen events, so let’s return the favor and head out to Weirton for a day of cultural fun! If you are interested in attending, please email Juginder Luthra at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What: 8th Annual Festival of Nations
When: Saturday March 19, 2016
Where: Weirton Milsop Community Center
Silk Screen Recommends…
The Benjamin’s Field trilogy follows a rural farm family over the course of sixty years through war, peace, triumph, tragedy, heartbreak and finally happiness. This emotional and heartwarming story with an unexpected ending examines the role of family loyalty versus individual need, personal liberty and how it relates to society’s demands, religious prejudice, racism, intolerance and the overwhelming need for humans to forgive one another.
The publication “Reader’s Favorite” recently awarded a 5-star review to the first book of the trilogy, Benjamin’s Field: Rescue.
Available for purchase from Amazon.

Music: Tibetan Singing Bowls: Journey Through the 7 Chakras
By Music for Deep Meditation
The holidays are fast approaching and we here at Silk Screen know how hectic and stressful this time of year can be so for this month’s music recommendation, we thought we would share with you something to help break through your astronomical levels of stress and allow you to find some zen, even if it’s just for the length of the album. Music for Deep Meditation has a number of albums to keep you chilled out, but we thought this one was particularly special. Tibetan singing bowls have long been believed to hold special healing powers due to the meditative trance it inspires in its listeners. Take a moment for YOU. Unwind and relax with this meditative music!

You are probably familiar with the 2006 film The Departed with Leonardo DiCaprio and Matt Damon, perhaps best known for being THE film to finally score legendary director Martin Scorsese his first elusive directing Oscar, but what you may not know was that the film was actually adapted from the Hong Kong Film Infernal Affairs which tells pretty much the same story, substituting a Chinese triad for the Boston Mob. The thriller follows a young police officer sent undercover into the triad while simultaneously the triad has sent a member of its own to be a mole in the police. If you love The Departed (and let’s be serious, who doesn’t?!), you’ll absolutely want to see the original version of the film!

I don’t know about you, but when I think of stellar skiing destinations, Japan has never been on my list. I think of Whistler, Innsbruck and Telluride—maybe St. Anton in Austria or Meribel in france. Possibly I’ve been living under a rock, or possibly Japan’s ski resorts are the best-kept secret in all of winter sports.
Thanks in part to being the host of the 1998 Nagano Olympics, Japan’s skiing profile has only grown. The country boasts some of the best back-country, deep powder skiing in the world. Hakuba is a resort with some of the steepest runs in the country, but there are so many others with just as much to offer.
Also thanks to the Nagano Olympics, Japan’s ski resorts have quite nice infrastructure and tourist facilities…not to mention buzzing nightlife! Here’s the best part: you don’t even have to plan yourself! Inside Japan has a selection of winter sports travel packages ranging from fully structured and guided to self-guided ski adventures.

Happy Holidays from everyone at Silk Screen!!
