This will record my walks through Rock Creek Park in Northwest DC and, I hope, record the view from a bridge where I always stop. I'm hoping to teach myself to notice the changes as the seasons change so I've chosen to record them, and the music that keeps me company, here. Forgive the formatting - I need to figure it out and can't right now.
Friday and Saturday lost to work and Shabbat respectively
Wednesday September 24 - no walk.
Friday and Saturday the 19th and 20th were lost days - no walk, sadly.
Thursday September 18 - MoveOn Vote for Change -- I think this will show up frequently between now and election day. That People Have the Power - and I Am a Patriot (the Rivers Open for the Righteous) just do it for me right now.
Monday September 15 - Bob Dylan's 30th Anniversary Tribute Concert - one of the great gatherings. Dylan, Neil Young, even Chrissie Hynde - winds up with an out-of-sight Knock Knock Knockin' on Heaven's Door.
Can you see how the water has receded since Hannah?
Saturday September 13 was Shabbat, so no walk and no camera.
September 10 Breakfast meeting - no walk
Tuesday September 9 The Dixie Chicks Live
I'd never paid much attention to them until the appeared on the MoveOn tour; then I saw Shut Up and Sing and went out and bought this CD in solidarity. Love them!
Sunday September 7 Great Big Sea: Road Rage
I got to know this wonderful Canadian group through my son, who brought me this CD. I've written about them before; they're great company on a walk. As you can see, Rock Creek rose over the weekend, thanks to Hurricane Hannah.
Thursday and Friday September 4-5 People Have the Power, MoveOn Vote for Change Concert
An amazing concert and a treasured memory, this was the last performance in the 2004 Vote for Change tour. It wasn't enough to beat Bush but it was a hell of a concert. My favorite song is at the bottom of this post.
Wednesday September 3 The Seeger Sessions, Bruce Springsteen
Bruce and old folk songs Pete used to sing. A joy to hear, and to walk with.
