"Here's the deal:
You get a delicious home-cooked meal in exchange for a performance of some kind. Please prepare a song you'd like to perform and bring any accompanying instruments. If you're not into singing, you can perform a poem, do some spoken word, do a drum solo, dance, etc. it's a win-win situation.
The event will include a delicious meal, individual or group performances, and jam sesh til the break of dawn.
Please bring the alcohol of your choice, an instrument, your singin' voice, and your BFF."
Thank you. Thank you for reminding me that living is magic. You have ideas! dreams! plans! creativity! You may feel down, or discouraged, but you remind me that I'm not the only one.
I have dreams too, but without you I think I might forget them. Maybe allow them to go up with the onion fumes and "yesterday's garbage ripening in the hall."
Last weekend, during sing for supper, I felt the feeling I need. The one I crave and search for: a sense of community, something stronger. We were all friends, we made music, we sang together - not alone. When you sang Emmylou I came out from the kitchen, whipping the cream, and I looked at you. It was the strangest thing, I saw my best friend. You looked just like her.
We all sang with you.
You're so freaking cool and you don't even know it.
So, thank you for reminding me, for giving me the feeling, and being so much more than you think you are.
