i was looking for My music. not my brother's music (beatles, stones, kinks, hendrix, who, all fine, not mine, his). MY music. searching everywhere for me. turned on the university radio station one night, and back to back, elvis costello and ac/dc. the power and the passion. anger can be power. november night 1978, 15 years old, elvis costello and the attractions played our playhouse. i have my ticket stub, 10,000s of others too. my first concert. playing every song in a race to 90 seconds. ramones speed/power and that was it. i found me. my groove, my dance, based all on the non/stop, dancing/pogo/ing of steve nieve on keyboards. punk rock. every band/name beginning with The, ramones, clash, pogues, The The, JAM, stranglers, specials, english beat, boomtown rats, opened the doors to my perception of the world around. DIY>do it yourself. we are the event. the spirit. of every concert. every movement. every gathering. every protest for mother earth and people. every art piece. our positive love/art/energy is illimitable!!!!
somewhere i have never traveled gladly beyond any experience/your eyes have their silence. i thank you god for most this amazing day/this is your moment now/cummings and cohen and a dash of bukowski to spice up the ways of berger's seeing. pablo neruda/rumi, too.
i roar into the breath;taking (silence) of every new day...holy fuck, let;s do it!!!!
turn up the stereo and Let;s dance!
Now, what is cs spirit? Sharing caring friendship. Trust n honesty. Now, what is not cs spirit? No mooching. No freeloading. I'm not a free hotel. If you don't know how to cook, I can teach you. You buy the ingredients, and let's have a super fun cooking class. I will write you a super honest great reference, if you have cs spirit.
If you're a mooch, freeloader, watch out. The reference will be brutally honest and negative.
And, why don't you have references? Come on. Host travellers and see how it is to be cleaning up after guests, waiting for guests to arrive. Rearranging schedules. Walk in a host's hiking boots...
