April at Bossa

Thursday, April 30th, 2015

Thanks to all who came out to Bossa in April! New faces and old friends stopped by to share their thoughts through beautiful inspiring words and rhythms. Here are some highlights:

Shahid called on us to raise our voice, make a choice, ’cause our leaders have no vision, just callus disregard for this world where we’re all livin.’

Jess experimented with peace valuation and tried to shake off her bullshit, bullshit.

John spoke of the magic gargoyle, hands that hold warm gentle pears, our dearest ancient ancestor, and the earth exhaling I am, I must be.

Kristina is cool. She’s chillin.’

Paul said it is a mistake to forget the beauty of a man lying in wait, ready to be opened, teased to the surface.

Josie OPP’d Khalil Gibran…when love beckons to you, follow him.

Matt recalled the flight of blackbirds, the backpack with seams spreading, the homeless who have nothing to show you other than a dawn you’ve never yet stayed up for.

Melissa asked when we extract who will react? For the next generation, damnation, with our gas filled cars. Mining underminding in the name of progress, democracy.

There will be much more of this to hear at our next open mic. See you at Bossa, 2463 18th St. NW DC, on Tuesday, May 12th, 7-9 PM!
