content.

Standard

while spending the better part of a morning

at the salon

and at the having my hair washed stage

a woman I’ve never met

hair in foil for highlights

wrapped in a black robe

walked up

and stood before me pointing

 then proclaiming,

to the entire salon:

“now here is a woman who is contented and relaxed,

taking 10 minutes, all for herself!”

something about my demeanor

must have given me away

for she was spot on.

“contentment is the only real wealth” 

― albert nobel

summer’s quiet.

Standard

came upon this peaceful man 

sleepy with quiet thoughts

on a quiet noon

spent in bandamer park

ann arbor, mi. usa

 

“summer quiet thoughts on summer quiet noons.” 

-ray bradbury, now and forever

 

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

and so it began

another summer

had arrived

and

it was kicked off

in a larger than life way

with

martha reeves and the vandellas

giving a free concert

outisde on the street

and

it brought people of all kinds together

to

dance in the streets

and

sing

and

remember

and

celebrate

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

‘rent’

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.
