music washes.

Standard

great night

spent reenergizing

with the bodeans

and good company

at the ark

one of my favorite places

thanks for the music, m.

a woodstock moment – 40+ years later

on a whim, a young duo went to the legendary festival

only to be captured in a memorable image

two in half a million:

bobbi kelly and nick ercoline greet the dawn

on august 17, 1969.


“this is the way to hear music, i think,

surrounded by rolling hills and farmlands, under a big sky.”

a ticket

to watch

the detroit lions

play

a

pre-season

football game

 the score

has no meaning

 like watching

kids run around with a ball

gentle

careful

not to play too hard

no one wants to get hurt

and

a walk outside

after the game

leads to

a free front row seat

right on the curb

best seat in the city

on a warm and breezy

summer night

 live music

fills the air

 you listen

as our hometown boy

eminem

and his friend

rhianna

sing their hearts out

outside

right across the street

only 50 feet away

where

the detroit tigers

play baseball

fireworks go off

IMG_1614

 great music booms through the air

clear as a bell

 bikes

that light up like magic

glide on by

and

fans of all kinds

music

and

football

and

 those who just love detroit

all

together

running

and

dancing

and

talking

and

smiling

in the street

and

happy police

stand by

and

take it all in

 a great feeling

fills the street

and overflows

as all paths cross

IMG_1619

and

worlds collide

into

a perfect night

between two worlds life hovers like a star,

twixt night and morn, upon the horizon’s verge.

our annual classical music concert.

a chance for the kinders to see the big kids, (4th and 5th grades),

perform a musical show for them.

a chance to see the possibilities in their own future.

it is a challenge for some of the littles to sit through this event.

they need to move,

and often.

and for some, it is moving in a very different way.

Image

one such kinder caught up in all the magic of the music,

with wide sparkling eyes,

and a face covered with a rapturous smile,

and arms moving with every note,

whispered the most wonderful reaction,

‘miss k, my ears are dancing!!’

and i thought this to be the perfect description of how music can really move a person.
