”Flower Child’ is simply a tribute to my beloved daughter, Gia, who, with her love of music from the 1960’s and her free-spirited outlook on life, would have been entirely comfortable in that era! I often write about people and places I know, but strive to keep my work relatable and universal. It is common for mothers and daughters, I believe, to have differences of opinion and temperament, but these differences are celebrated in this little poem, and the underlying theme is love and acceptance.”
“The Cyans is an independent international power trio from Leipzig/Germany that plays original music apparently closest to alternative rock, based on songs written by Zomb Menon. The band plays concerts regularly in the Leipzig area.”
Got any big plans for this Friday, March 6? In the first installment of its “Trash Movie Series,” Uptown Coffee Bar is delighted to give you a chance to spend your Friday evening sharing drinks and a mixture of laughter and fits of cringing with kindred moviegoing spirits in a cozy coffeeshop atmosphere. And it’s for free.
The angles of Leipzig sliding before my eyes glowed with such beauty and artistic sensitivity that they could only have been the offspring of a serious romance between the photographers and the city.
If you’re in town this week, here’s an opportunity to meet some Leipzig writers and be immersed in a creative atmosphere while possibly drinking some Polish vodka or cocktail, and/or eating pierogi and such.
