With deep thanks to my friend Leslie Mardenborough, I saw my first Sweet Honey in the Rock concert. I have three of their CDs and songs from four others, but I had never seen them live. What an amazing treat! Also, this was my first time at Symphony Space. More CDs will follow as will, hopefully, more visits to Symphony Space.

We Meet Again Tour – 29 December 2018

IMG-8705It has been years since the American Museum of Natural History received a visit. The children were, well, children.

Today’s visit was to see some of the Kwanzaa exhibit.

The origami Christmas tree was also viewed.

IMG-7645The Pirates played the second of their three games against the Mets. And the tour returned to Citi Field. The Pirates lost.

Teeth were gnashed.

IMG-7627The We Meet Again Tour took a trip to the Village to celebrate Father’s Day, a few days late. It involved a great meal with Sean. And a chance to play with Henrik.

We Meet Again Tour – 4 July 2018

IMG_7677The tour took a short walk, a couple of blocks uptown, and downhill, to West 125th and Broadway. There it joined Mama Ruby Sales and the Rev. Dr.  Jacqui Lewis, the founding directors of the Vincent and Rosemarie Harding Center for Social and Spiritual Restoration,  for a Mourn-in and Day of Fasting to #EndFamilySeparation.

We gathered outside the Cayuga Center where children separated from their parents at the border are reportedly held during the day.

We called for:
an end to this unjust and cruel separation
a renewal of democracy
the strength to stay on the battlefield of justice until we win

We affirmed that:
God is love
And all who abide in love
Abide in God
And God in us

We proclaimed that:
The walls that they build
To tear us apart
Will never be as strong as
The walls of our hearts
The desert is hot
But we are the rain

#FamiliesBelongTogether
#EndFamilySeparation

We Meet Again Tour – 9 June 2018, #2

img-7511.jpgThe tour wandered down Broadway, via the Subway, to visit the new H-Mart located at 110th. The store has been there for a while, but this was the first visit. And the first visit to any H-Mart.

Wonderful foods lined the shelves. Some were avoided because of their calorie count. More were not selected because they were unknown. Work is needed in that area.

But there was kimchi! And it was good.
