The Cloud of Unknowing

these band members gave the band name as "The Cloud of Unknowing"

The Cloud of Unknowing counsels a young student to seek God, not through knowledge and intellection (faculty of the human mind), but through intense contemplation, motivated by love, and stripped of all thought. This is brought about by putting all thoughts and desires under a “cloud of forgetting”, and thereby piercing God’s cloud of unknowing with a “dart of longing love” from the heart. This form of contemplation is not directed by the intellect, but involves spiritual union with God through the heart:–Wikipedia

carpenter center intermission
My first time in life in the presence of RSO players without Emma Gray nearby. Violin concerto written by a human from Richmond, Mason Bates, and performed by a violinist
from another planet, Anne Akiko Meyers. Amazing music. One is reminded, not much time on stage, use it.

The big tent in the little downtown. The tent blocks former mountain view but provides seating for political and musical events. Was this a custom tent or an off the shelf model?


Black Market Moto Saloon

Filed under: music,neighborhood — WmX @ 09:24

The proprietor of a recently established restaurant-bar at the gateway of the Woolen Mills neighborhood hopes to acquire a discretionary permit from our City Council to operate a “Music Hall”.

Party advocates are thrilled by the prospect of a small venue (150 legal capacity) with a big sound.

Peoples’ needs/desires are in conflict. The clients of the Moto Saloon want to drink and dance, the Moto proprietor wants to make money. The residents of the neighborhood want to sleep at night.
