Latest Update: Oct. 2: The Long Island Press did a cover story on my work with people who suffer from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). It's in the Sept. 28 - Oct. 4 issue.

September 26: I'm part of an experimental New York City theatre company doing an outdoor site-specific performance titled " Agora II " in an empty swimming pool in Williamsburgh, Brooklyn. You might have read about it; "a choreographic game for one thousand bodies" directed by Noémie Lafrance. It's an incredible audience-participation dance/drama/interpretive piece about urban life and love in the public spaces of cities - thus the name, which is Greek for open area or marketplace. There are 4 performances left: Wed-Sat Sept 27-30 at 8pm. There are still some tickets left for "viewers" (spectators) and "players" (who actually join the cast for short intervals and become part of the landscape!) Go to SensProduction.org to learn the dance steps you will be doing in the program! (We're also looking for volunteer ushers who will get to see that evening's performance FREE! Contact me at woodge1 at hotmail.com
to volunteer!)
 
PS - (dated Oct. 2 - " Agora II " is over - it was great!) I'm now working on ideas for future projects... if you know of something interesting in the NY City/Long Island Metro area, please feel free to share it with me.)

Slow Dance

This is a poem written by a teenager with cancer.
She wants to see how many people get her poem.
It is quite the poem.

This poem was written by a terminally ill young girl in a New York Hospital.

It! was sent by a medical doctor - Make sure to read what is in the closing statement AFTER THE POEM.


SLOW DANCE


Have you ever watched kids

On a merry-go-round?

Or listened to the rain

Slapping on the ground?

Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight?

Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

You better slow down.

Don't dance so fast.

Time is short.

The music won't last.


Do you run through each day

On the fly?

When you ask How are you?

Do you hear the reply?

When the day is done

Do you lie in your bed

With the next hundred chores

Running through your head?

You'd better slow down

Don't dance so fast.

Time is short.

The music won't last.


Ever told your child,

We'll do it tomorrow?

And in your haste,

Not see his sorrow?

Ever lost touch,

Let a good friendship die

Cause you never had time

To call and say,"Hi"

You'd better slow down.

Don't dance so fast.

Time is short.

The music won't last.

When you run so fast to get somewhere

You miss half the fun of getting there.

When you worry and hurry through your day,

It is like an unopened gift....

Thrown away.

Life is not a race.

Do take it slower

Hear the music

Before the song is over.

Dear All:

PLEASE [copy this entire email, including the "FROM" and "TO" text at the top, and] pass this mail on to everyone you know - even to those you don't know!  It is the request of a special girl who will soon leave this world due to cancer.
This young girl has 6 months left to live, and as her dying wish, she wanted to send a letter telling everyone to live their life to the fullest, since
she never will.
She'll never make it to prom, graduate from high school, or get married and have a family of her own.
By you sending this to as many people as possible, you can give her and her family a little hope, because with every name that this is sent to, The American Cancer Society will donate 3 cents per name to her treatment and recovery plan. One guy sent this to 500 people! So I know that we can at least send it to 5 or 6. It's not even your money, just your time!
PLEASE PASS ON AS A LAST REQUEST.

REVIEW: Summer Warm Up Series at P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center

I went to a Saturday afternoon "happening" at MoMA's PS1 branch; apparently they do this every Sat. from 3pm-9pm: they bring in a young experimental electronic music/dance music band that plays in the courtyard. It attracts a huge crowd of about 2-3,000 people, mostly ages 18-30, who fill the courtyard, spilling over into a walk-through art installation/reflecting pool/architectural fantasy, complete with 3 cold fog-machines. Most of the people were dancing freestyle, drinking and generally having a great time. (People were even dancing in the reflecting pool!) The Museum picks artsy musicians (I have NEVER heard that kind of sound before, and the crowd loved it)...but the best part for the Museum is that the party draws hundreds of youg art-lovers into its 4 floors of really strange experimental art, and that creates a fascinating experience...I wandered from gallery to gallery, floor to floor..from video installations of time, space and bodily functions to Warhol prints...taking in the art AND the peoples' reactions to it...I think their reactions, and what they wear, and the comments I overhear are more fascinating than the art itself! It's like one HUGE art opening reception/arts festival! and the music from the courtyard filters into all the rooms, providing an avant-garde soundtrack for the experience. I chatted with some of them and they were very friendly and intellectual; many were art students and artists...  and afterwards I found myself dancing with them downstairs outside in the 95-degree heat of the crowded courtyard (which, as seen earlier from a gallery window 3 floors above, resembled something out of Woodstock!) And when you get really hot and sweaty from dancing, there's a "chill-out" room with blocks of ice to sit on! Definitely THE party place of the summer!
 
 

REVIEW: Electronic Music and Film Series

   I went to the 'music-in-the-empty-pool' event tonight: It was held in a city park between Williamsburgh and Greenpoint (a vibrant singles community).
Slightly different crowd, maybe a bit older (working people 21-maybe 33 or so)...  I got there a little after the 7pm starting time for the electronic music portion of the event. It takes place in a HUGE abandoned pool - I've NEVER seen a pool that big - easily the size of a K-mart parking lot! The aqua-blue paint was mostly worn away, leaving only blue chips stuck to a cement floor. And the pool depth only went from 5 inches at one end to just two feet at the 'deep' end...must have been for children only (I can't IMAGINE that many hundreds of young children in a shallow ocean like that! The area must have had an incredible baby boom 70 years ago (1935?) when the pool was built!. Anyway, very few people came between 7 and 8 for the musical performance - maybe only about 30-40 and kind of dissapointing (and they seemed lost in this huge parking lot of a pool). But the music was (to me) very fascinating - it was minimalistic "ambient" sounds - ocean sounds (went very well in the pool), a woman playing a theramin (a small electronic box device with antennas that makes different pitch sounds depending on how close or far away from the antennae the musician holds her hands in mid-air), and 2 women in bathing suits banging objects together and shuffling their feet on the floor; all of which were amplified by a microphone so you couldn't tell what was making the sounds. It was very spacey and at the same time relaxing. (Oh, and the original description said you would watch the event while sitting in an inner-tube - well, that was nowhere to be seen except in photos of performances back in the beginning of the season in June. Tonight, the audience just picnicked on blankets on the floor.)
  As the sun faded, they began showing video graphic designs in animation on a big screen at the side of the pool, accompanied by a man playing an amplified violin that sounded more like a lion roaring. Then when it really got dark, they screened "The French Connection" for the rest of the evening. I didn't come for the film, so I "got out of the pool".
   This free event will be repeated every Tuesday through August at sunset, but with different experimental musicians and a different film each time.

About Me I'm a creative, independent rennaisance man. I live "outside the box". I love doing spontaneous things, cross country skiing, sharing, stargazing, museums, shopping, experimental theater, new age music & jazz. When I'm at home, I'm often tinkering with stuff; inventing new things, working on all kinds of creative projects: I write online about my passions and my work, and I keep a camera with me so I can grab pictures of many of the interesting people and places I enjoy, and combine my writing and pictures to create websites for the things I love in life so I can share them with you. Some of my passions and projects have included creating light shows for dance parties, designing window displays for department stores, raising and breeding tropical fish, and making art and sculpture out of discarded materials. I love to share my favorite things with people; I'll set up my telescope on a busy street corner and invite people walking by to look at the rings of Saturn and the craters on the Moon. As a museum teacher/naturalist years ago, I loved taking school groups on nature walks. Currently, as a Behavioral Therapy Coach, I do housecalls, and I make 'friends' with all the pets on my route! I love to shop!! especially in garage sales and flea markets where I find things to work into my projects. I seldom watch TV, but when I do, my favorite programs are usually PBS documentaries on nature, astronomy, anthropology and the arts. In the summer I'll get together with friends and go to outdoor concerts and modern dance and performance art. Or we'll visit museums and galleries, and go walking and looking for birds in the parks and forests near me. (I love camping too!) I don't drink, smoke, or do drugs. I play keyboards, autoharp, recorder and thumb piano kalimba (maybe you could jam with me!). I'm definitely not a couch potato. I teach cross country skiing and I teach stargazing on clear Friday nights at the Vanderbilt Planetarium in Centerport. My 2 brothers & their wives also live on LI. I have no children. I have 3 wonderful nieces that I play with!
