A dear friend, George Henriksen, has observed the world and written poetry for almost fifty years. Going through his work the other day looking for a poem I had once set to music, I reread one poem about an experience he had chronicled while watching water in the sound on a shifting day. The poem literally said, "Set me to music." And so I obeyed.
Life is hard...and beautiful - filled with moments of struggle and moments of peace. As an observer of the life that swirls around us, I attend to the stories of everyday people, listening for the moments of courage and grace that infuse their lives and listening for the music surrounding those stories. In Windfall, an acoustic duo with Tim Seawell, we share the soundscapes of our common human experience. through those songs and their stories.
Summer is here and in the evenings, I don't know about you, but we often have a craving for some sweet treat to end the night. The Newsroom is the perfect place to satisfy those cravings! Besides the gelato, they have a variety of desserts and coffees as well as a selection of wine, all served in one of the friendliest spaces you will probably find. Come join us as we celebrate those lazy days of summer in the beautiful Northwest! See you there!.
