Won't You Be My Neighbor?

A couple of months ago Katie Hartsock put together an amazing show featuring a range of performers and performances. I don't think anyone who was there could have walked away without having heard at least one--and most likely several--pieces to really like.

Unfortunately, as things sometimes go, it took me too long to update this website to really do the show justice in this blog post. I'm unable to do a full rundown of performances like I normally would (and it's hard to type one-handed with a popsicle occupying my left hand at the moment). Things that stuck with me from that night: the dog that terrorized in Jacob's poem, Valerie's play about weird neighborly relations, the image of young Katie's neighbors playing in disgusting flood water while she and her family cling to furniture, the bar by Paul's house that none of us should ever enter. There was a lot more from the night than what I just mentioned, and I want to thank everyone who was part of show or the audience. It was a great night, and it wouldn't have been great without you.

And now, to leave you with a smile, a video clip of Mr. Rogers:
