my crown is called content, a crown that seldom kings enjoy. – william shakespeare



and so it began

another summer

had arrived


it was kicked off

in a larger than life way


martha reeves and the vandellas

giving a free concert

outisde on the street


it brought people of all kinds together


dance in the streets







the season


and later

i had the chance to see

my co-worker from school

in a very different role

acting in a

powerful production

of one of my favorites


held in a beautiful old theater

with voices booming and tears flowing

Full Cast for weband i couldn’t have asked for a better way

to be welcomed into summer

but with music and passion.

  1. This is my kind of music which does border on “over the top,” Beth!! Fun times in Ann Arbor. Rent is a heartfelt story about love and acceptance, which has so much to offer. Yes, tears flow but this was such a great way to see your co-worker in another way…. Summer’s off with a Bang!!

  2. I can’t think of a more forward looking, upbeat way to kick off summer. Delicious Beth. I sat down with my coffee and sun pouring in the window of my new apartment this morning, and your post really made me smile. Thank you
