A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Alice Coltrane carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Good Morning Trouble, thank you for anouncing last week the Lonnie Holley Show at the Bk Musume Saturday Night. The Brooklyn Museum what a secret and a joy. The concert was a wonder transporting us to a space of collaboration and togetherness. Arriving at the museum at 5p after bus to 42nd street and a glorious ride down the greenway seeing sun set and over BK bridge up to Grand Army and into my seat setting up and painting the concert.

The Moonins teach us to embrace the simple things in life...but...the business of selling ANYTHING with Moonins on it has become a big business in Finland. There's a Moonins store in the main indoor shopping center here in Turku ( undoubtedly in Helsinki as well ) The film "Tove" was a big hit last year and was very well done. Wonder if it was released in the States.

Hi! I teach at the New School. Part-Time Faculty (87% of the faculty) went on strike for a month until the school finally agreed to give us a fair(er) contract. While we were striking, a group of students occupied the University Center and released a list of demands, including all As for this heavily disrupted semester which did not allow them to do their best work. Unfortunately it's been distorted in the media as whiny privileged students demanding all As, but it's a complicated situation at a school that has a lot of problems.
