The Edendale Library society held a Benefit tonight for the LIBRARY featuring
an IRREGULAR wine tasting with live performances.
Upon entering the ECHO I saw Miss. Cynthia checking out the preowned books on sale. I scored a lovely 1st edition book of old LOVE SONGS (c) 1907. From there I was made up in glitter eyeshadow by Heidi's "night of beauty" table. The evening truly took off when John Tottenham read from his book the INERTIA Variations.
Here's one poem he read:
I sometimes marvel at how little I do
And at how it is necessary for me to do very little.
I could put a flame under myself, perhaps a flicker.
But I have this fire in me to do nothing. And it is important
That a certain amount of time should be reserved
For doing nothing. Both before, during and after
Doing something. And I could be incinerated
By a flicker.
The Living Sisters also performed for the first time tonight. The group consists of Eleni Mandell, Inara George and Becky Stark (Lavender Diamond). They were wearing dazzling glitter costumes from the corner store. Heidi let up their eyelids with glitter dust before they performed.
Sometimes the Echo is the kind of place you run into people from the past that you need to make a clean get away from. So we opted to escape out the back alley and hike up the hill to the Brite Spot. We really wanted Thai food but our Scooby Van was left back at the scene...and we feared being found.
