D Note Love Letter 5/31/12

D Naturals,

Hi there! (Anybody remember the character Washington on "Welcome Back, Kotter"? He had a memorable way of saying "Hi there!" which we now borrow for you.)

Tomorrow night for a free Friday Afternoon Concert we have the lovely Alice Frisch at 5pm.

Then starting at 7pm Friday night the redoubtable Celtic Pirate Rock band called The Potcheen Folk Band has put together a night of great music for us. First an alt country band out of Evergreen called Open Space, then Potcheen and ending the night with the excellent Flash Mob (rock funk hip hop reggae). $5

Extra Credit. An inspiring poem by John Brehm this week.

Critical Mass

Lifted their bikes up-
side down above
their thousand
heads and
locked the grid
blocked the inter-
section shut
the whole East
Village down
cars jammed
against that
stopped moment
that break in
time's flow
nothing moving
to go unless
inward until
the helicopter's
searchlight shook
the air and cops
a couple kids
to set example
hauled off
a truckload of
others forced
apart the forces
that swirled
together there—
but what I still see
are the wheels
held upward
spoked with light
freed from
the pavement
spinning into sky.
