r is for reflect

My role in society, or any artist's or poet's role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all.

rainy weekend on the northcoast, despite the ever-present wetness and chilly temps (which I really love) it promises to be a great weekend. a cousin from pennsylvania is visiting us for the first time, getting in yesterday. our dancecards are full. yesterday we explored the area around the west side market in the afternoon, then hit the art museum for their friday evening film, and wrapped up the night at the happy dog - rocking out to the radical, revolutionary sounds of tunabunny.

today's highlights include a trip to the rock and roll hall of fame and museum to check out the women who rock exhibition! later a group cook at home - dinner will revolve around roasted veggies.

don't forget all you music and/or film lovers - this week is the debut on hbo of martin scorsese's documentary on george harrison!
