The new buzzis Social Enterprise.
Money to same old I’d guess
Well you see George the way it is is the way it always was and the way it will always be
Him who got, gets more.
No no no … social entrepreneurs need not apply unless said social entrpreneurs are approved by Chambers of Commerce.
Government likes Chambers of Commerce.
I have a feeling Government does not support social enterprise unless it is connected to “same olds” like Chambers of Commerce … Proof is in the pudding.
Besides … Why not ask ACOA … Ask what they are doing to encourage social enterprise.
Art? Support of Art and Artists and musicians. Heeee heeee heee you are just too funny, George.
What’s that, George?
You have a funny story, you say? You want to build it into our rock opera?
As I understand, it is a story about some character who would lure cats into a garden … then when they got close enough …
Here kitty kitty … Here kitty kitty … Numnums … Nice kitty …
Ohhh poor kitty … LOL … Did that hurt?
George, that was not funny. Yes George, I realize your story idea is no worse than what we might see in some of the movies which are classified as comedies.
George, “no worse” is not good enough.
Besides, George, I’m really busy hustlin’ these days. Not much time to work on the rock opera.
Well George … Almost time to be thinking about the Garden of Artists …
Maybe write a poem or a song … Paint a picture … a vision of Spring …
Yes, I realize it’s still bitterly cold around the shores of Chaleur Bay. But the thaw has to happen eventually.
What is it? What is the Spring Garden of Artists? Well since you seem interested …
February begins with a new Celtic season appropriate to thinking about gardens and planning for Spring and getting things ready.
No George … The Spring Garden of Artists is Not an English Country Garden … Not at all … More like a Wild Flower Garden.
The Garden of Artists is not about neat little plots or pc containers with well-defined labels lined up according to tongues or nationalities or politics. Neither is about gender nor religious beliefs.
The Garden of Artists It is about independent artists getting together and sharing art … Visual art … Music … Songs … Drama … Creative Writing … Dance …
No George, I have no idea what sort of flowers will sprout. That’s the thing about wildflowers. You may spread the seeds but you never know how they will take or what wonder-blooms might appear …
Some folks will be waving red and white flags and celebrating Canada Day. Here I am still waiting for that Irish Harper or maybe an Irish fiddler or piper to help build up interest in Irish sessions at the Doucet-Hennessy House in Bathurst, New Brunswick Canada. I’d invite the piano-player but our piano is sadly out of tune and there are no funds to tune it.
Don’t Forget You’re Irish Art exhibit opens to the public July 3. Drop by Tuesday to Saturday for a cup of tea and a chat at the historic Doucet-Hennessy House in Bathurst, New Brunswick. If you play Celtic or Acadian music or any sort of traditional folk music, we hope to have informal music sessions on Saturdays from 2-4. Bring along your acoustic instrument and join us. Music workshops are in the planning for September.
Maybe we local Artists have finally found our place on Chaleur Bay.
A new day has dawned.
Some might say
A time for change
What was it
That old man said
Be the change?
There is in memory
From long ago
A French saying
Mette la table
The spelling might
Be not quite right
I set my table
The best I can
The best I am able
With good wishes
Peace and joy
Justice for all
As I serve
What I gather
Times are changing.
2016 is almost over.
The Harper knave
All those years
While all across
This great country
Ad usque ad mare
As some might say
Bad spelling notwithstanding
Who never took a stand
For or against
For the Harper
Who never arrived.
Another year has gone by
Quickly so quickly
It is now December 2016
Much has happened
We have no place
Artists and musicians
In this place
Asking for little
Besides a safe place
To live and work.
For food they say
You must pay more
No one will tell us
Why that is.
What this world would be
Without artists and musicians.
Yes, philosophers too
And others who care …
Nobody asking questions
That need to be asked.
Yet another study?
While we languish
These last few years
While they study
Us to death.
Do you really belive in that George? Hmmmm well in the late part of the last century … Was that before The New World Order George? No, I cannot recall exactly. Well before the year 2000 … Actually before 1999 … Ahhh now that was an interesting year. Yes George there was. Canada in 1999. Who was in charge? No idea George. Sounds too much like politics.
Talk politics? No George absolutely not. What do I know? Not much … But here you go …
Yes George. You did hear right. I have become a Decor Nanny … Or if you prefer Decor-Nanny. So.
So? That is the latest and greatest expression George. Must be a sign of intelligence I guess. Well I hear it all the time when I listen to CBC radio.
So, what I do as a Decor-Nanny is … I go to your place with my Decor-Maid kit and I help get your creative juices flowing.
You don’t get it do you George?
It’s about art George. And really you mustn’t feel bad. Most people don’t get art. That’s why artists would much rather associate with other artists.
What is an artist? Good question George. ACK.
