Happy Wednesday!



Good morning GLOBers.  Here is an excellent update on the Snow Boarding Wecking Crew Team member and my son-in-law Chris Heller relayed by his mother Linda heller.:  

"Friday starts a new chapter for Chris. He will be released from Brooks inpatient rehab. He is doing amazingly well both physically and mentally. His strength will eventually return no doubt.  As far as his cognitive abilities he can fool you. He is very clear about so much and then not so.... but the future looks very promising. God is definitely in charge. Monday he starts outpatient therapy for a month."



International Folk Dancing - Tonight at 7;00 in the Rosa B. Williams Center, 524 NW 1st Street.  Enjoy music from around the world and learn to dance to intriguing melodies. Even if you have never danced before or have two left feet, you have come to the right place. Pop music and dance are great but there is more. There is International Folk Dance.



SWAMP HEAD SAUSAGE AND SUDS:  Every Thursday at the Swamphead Brewery Wetlands come enjoy a hand crafted sausage made with humanely and sustainably raised pork with beer in hand. Mayflower Cellars creates these delicacies just a few miles from the brewery and they will be here firin’ up the grill and searing these tasty dogs for your enjoyment   




Bo Diddley Yoga - Every Thursday at 6:00 pm spend an hour being kind to yourself with CYT Jackie Morone in this FREE combination Hatha/Vinyasa yoga class. Our focus will always be on basic postures and breathing techniques, but I like to incorporate a few dynamic poses for fun and challenge! Beginner yogis are encouraged but all levels are welcome to join. Please dress comfortably, bring a yoga mat, any props you may need, water, and an open heart. Donations appreciated. Hope to see you there.

The GLOB world wide offices are awash with good, spiritual feels after the GLOB Master spent Sunday afternoon watching the Hippodrome Theatre's play THE CHRISTIAN with special friend and Ayuerveda Specialist Chaya Sharon-Heller. After the show I was invited by Chaya to celebrate Yom HaAtzmaut, Israel's Independence Day, celebration at Depot Park.. In discussing The Christians review I mentioned I wanted to end the review with a reassuring, unifying message and I was thinking Life Down Here On Earth by Kevin Welch. That is when Lynn said, "Wow, Iris Dement's Let the Mystery Be to me seems a perfect unifying song.

Lynn made a great point about musics songwriting hero.. With duet with the likes of John Prine and Greg Brown Ms, Dement has never shied away from a good lyric.


050318Dement200After a series of jobs waitressing and typing, DeMent first began composing songs at the age of 25. Honing her skills at open-mike nights, she moved to Nashville in 1988, where she contacted producer Jim Rooney, who helped her land a record contract. DeMent did not make her recording debut until 1992, when her independent label offering, Infamous Angel, won almost universal acclaim thanks to her pure, evocative vocal style and spare, heartfelt song craft. Despite a complete lack of support from country radio, the record's word-of-mouth praise earned her a deal with Warner Bros., which reissued Infamous Angel in 1993 as well as its follow-up, 1994's stunning My Life.

My first experience with Iris DeMent was a protest song she wrote dissing the way America was treating her fellow man. In an excellent protest tune with a good amount of attitude Ms. DeMent won my heart with her in-your-face statement of it all sounding like crap to her:

We got little kids with guns fighting inner city wars
So what do we do, we put these little kids behind prison doors
and we call ourselves the advanced civilization
that sounds like crap to me
and it feels like I am living in the wasteland of the free
Livin' in the Wasteland of the Free
Iris dement
