Doin's - September 2020 (vol. 3, no. 2)

The Gift to Sing 

Sometimes the mist overhangs my path, 
And blackening clouds about me cling; 
But, oh, I have a magic way 
To turn the gloom to cheerful day— 
      I softly sing. 

And if the way grows darker still, 
Shadowed by Sorrow’s somber wing, 
With glad defiance in my throat, 
I pierce the darkness with a note, 
       And sing, and sing. 

I brood not over the broken past, 
Nor dread whatever time may bring; 
No nights are dark, no days are long, 
While in my heart there swells a song, 
       And I can sing. 

James Weldon Johnson (1871-1938) 

James Weldon Johnson, born in Florida in 1871, was a national organizer for the NAACP and an author of poetry and nonfiction. Perhaps best known for the song "Lift Every Voice and Sing," he also wrote several poetry collections and novels, often exploring racial identity and the African American folk tradition. www.poets.org  


AUTUMN GREETINGS, FRIENDS! 

I hope the first week of my favorite season finds you well and staying safe during the pandemic!

tomato, butternut squash and chicken soups
along with apple pastry and pie!

In the midst of global mass awakening to the reality of the climate emergency, and of the ecological and social injustice intertwined with it, how could art not be a crucial part of the story? Dozens of artists from Cape Cod and beyond share visions of EARTH JUSTICE. 

Cape Cod Community College and Higgins Art Gallery invite you to the EARTH JUSTICE SHOW. Meet the artists, explore the images, songs & stories mingled in this all-ages multi-media exhibit. 

The EARTH JUSTICE SHOW is about making art, peace and what John Lewis called “good trouble.” 

The show includes work by artists from four corners of the US, ranging in age from 7 to 87. It reflects the social and ecological "urgency of now," spotlighting the leadership of youth and vulnerable frontline communities. It is also a tribute to artpeacemakers' '80's roots in the movements for nuclear disarmament and environmental justice. 

From paintings, prints, photos and sculpture to handmade paper and "peace-torn" banners; from Zen calligraphy to Wampanoag flute songs and bead-weaving. EARTH JUSTICE charts the rising tide of awareness and resistance in defense of EARTH. It is as much a meditation as a cry from the heart and a call to action.
