Mad Poets Festival

I'll be at the Mad Poets Festival this Sunday, October 3, noon-to-5pm at the Media Borough Hall in downtown Media PA. I may even read at it-- don't know for sure at this writing-- but at least I'll be in the audience taking a note or two for this blog, maybe snapping photos. I hope to meet some writers!
(NOTE: Festival admission/"ticket" is one nonperishable food item for the City Team Ministries. Presumably the food item will eventually perish when somebody in need eats it!)

Hilary Hahn Sighting

hilary hahn

I was privileged to see Hilary Hahn in rehearsal at Detroit’s Orchestra Hall in 2008, thanks to an invite from a friend. Hahn is not only the greatest violinist on the planet, she’s the most beautiful. Hilary attended Philly’s famed Curtis Institute of Music. Last week while sitting in Rittenhouse Square I saw Ms. Hahn with entourage walking across the square. I also thought I’d seen her walking down 17th the night before--  though about that I may have been mistaken! The point: You never know who you’ll see in Philadelphia.
