Cobscook Bay Music
My brain's flyheel is still spinning at an incredible speed, trying to digest the events, conversations, responses, ideas, and dreams that this past weekend generated. Right now I just want to thank everyone for being there, helping, and most of all, I am greatful for the huge smiles and light in the eyes of the people who are rejuvenated by music and dance and the positive side of life. A special thanks to all the musicians who participated - Attila, Frank, Bob, the Ukelele Club, the Field Guides, Molana Oei, Jim Backhaus, Gary Cook... hope I didn't miss anyone. Of all my favorite moments, Attila's performance at the school stands out most. That some of them remembered him from his last visit 3 years ago, when they were in kindergarten, really made my day. Music does make a difference, and experiencing it early in life can make a great positive change.
My hope it that the "new beginnings" at Stockford Park will continue, and that the Community, in particular our youth, will embrace the Sculpture, the stage, all of it, as their own and make it a center of activity. It is a gem, and just needs a bit of polish. That's everyone's job.
Anyone with ideas and a desire to help, please contact me, and we'll find ways to move forward together.
Again - thanks to all!
