Invisible Dancer

As a dancer, I see music and all of the shapes, lines, spaces and synergies within the moving music molecules. Jerry Leake’s “Cubist” CD sparks combustible creative energy, the context of which changes every time I encounter it … like “Aldebaran,” which starts with a ‘big bang’ on the tam tam, simple glass chimes, flows into jingles of hanging and Tibetan bell choruses, balafon, vibraphone and glockenspiel interludes, and timbres of low log drum and tabla (body shakin’) grooves. My “invisible… Continue

Senator Ted Kennedy's Memorial at the JFK Library, Dorchester MA

Just had to comment on this moving experience. As a grant writer, community and arts activist for several decades, Senator Kennedy was a reliable and tireless advocate for arts and MANY social causes. He helped with my Community Foundation project while I was in grad school - part of which was to fund arts education. I shall not forget - and hope that none of you do, either. Maybe our prayers for universal healthcare will manifest.…
