Oysters and Cornbread and Chili, Oh My!

On January18, 2019, flourish had the privilege of producing the 8thAnnual Shuck-A-Rama for the Brain Injury Association of South Carolina (BIASC) in the Downtown Historic District of Charleston, S.C.   This outside, covered event was held at the Visitor Center Bus, which was transformed from a driveway for tourist busses into a low-country spectacle. With the use of burlap linens, lanterns, and greenery adorned with oyster garland, the venue had become a spectacular sight for anyone passing by on that crisp January evening.     The entertainment, provided by the Bluestone Ramblers, was a sublime addition to this low-country, oyster-themed...

The Heart of a Champion

by Jamie Prince In the story of the anointing of David to become King of Israel, Samuel carries out the orders of the Lord, although it is clear that David is a most unusual choice to be king. The Bible describes him as the eighth and youngest son of Jesse, a sheep farmer in the town of Bethlehem. “He was ruddy” (1 Samuel 16:12) and, when Samuel arrived at Jesse’s home, was not with the rest of the family but in the field tending the sheep. He was a poet and a musician. He was underestimated by his family: “Jesse...

Our 10th Anniversary

As we usher in a new year, flourish begins a special year of our own: our 10thAnniversary. I look at where we are today and, in a sense, Day One and Year One seem like they were just Last Week and Last Year. Just as they say with children, “the days have been long but the years have been short” in their passing. A milestone forces one to reflect. Here are some of the most vivid memories I have, and lessons I’ve learned, and what I really want to say at this point about where we’ve been, where and who...

Christmastime at flourish

by Bailey Verreault It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the holiday season with all of the parties, shopping and gifts. We often forget what this season is really about because the idea of commercialism and materialism consumes us. Finding the best gift for that special someone and hosting the perfect party are huge stressors in our lives when this should be a time of giving, relaxation and cheer. Do you remember how excited you got about the holidays when you were younger? As a child, you enjoyed the simple joys of Christmas. The world...

It’s the Little Things that Matter

A blog by our fall intern, Virginia Blackstone   Wow! It is crazy to think that just four months ago, I started interning here at flourish, and now the semester is coming to a close – time has flown by! When I first thought of what an internship looked like, I figured I would be sorting files, running to get coffee, and if I was lucky, getting the chance to show that I was hardworking, dedicated, and talented while doing so. From the very beginning, I didn’t care what my job would look like day to day, but the thought...
