D Note love letter 10/11/12

D band

Remember, when life hands you lemonade, make lemons. Life'll be all like, "WHAAAT?"

There are some terrific things happening this weekend starting with In Due Time's EP release on Friday night. In Due Time is just one of our favorite bands, very very fun and we are excited they are having their release at the D. And of course the halloween hafla is a highlight every year. This one will be packed so come early if you want a seat. The band playing afterward is a terrific surf/reggae band from Orange County California called The Originalites. These guys need a place to stay, so if anyone has room for four surfers let us know. Below you will find the rest of the scoop for the weekend...

Extra Credit: A gentleman came and read at the D Note's 100,000 Poets For Change event a few weekends ago named Dale O. McCoy. He told us he had written a poem at the D Note a few years ago and gave it to us. It's a sweet one. Here it is.

D NOTE Angel

An evening at DNOTE my wife at my side

Settling in for music, food and drink to imbibe

Surveying the scene people sitting, talking

Laughing enjoying the fare

My eyes rest on a young woman nearby

In a wheel chair

Lovingly attended to by her family

From the back nondescript and unremarkable is she

She turned with wide open saucer shaped eyes

Looking around with inquisitive wonderment

Her face opened and gazed upon me

An angelic aura mesmerized me instantly

Framed by dark brown hair with eye brows to match

I am struck by the beauty of this face

Natural, unadorned beauty radiating

Innocent serenity from within

A smile disarming, sweet and sincere

Our eyes met I smiled said hello and nodded her way

With nary a word she had her say

She turned back to the affairs of her family

Giving me pause to reflect and appreciate

How blessed was I to have this face gaze upon me

A child of God full of innocence and grace

Brought momentary calm to this busy, noisy place
