Here in my small town, we’re lucky to have some visionary community leaders. People who get how important it is for small towns to come together for fun.
Lately, I’ve been going to Concerts in the Park on Wednesday nights. Thursdays is movie night, in which a family-friendly flick is projected onto a screen—the side of a large white truck. And on Fridays, there’s another concert.
Everybody shows up, even in 110-degree heat. Everybody brings everything: lawn chairs, blankets, picnic hampers. Since this is hops and vineyards country, you can buy beer or wine, if you’re so inclined.
And so it was a few nights ago that I saw Sol Seed, a terrific reggae band from Eugene, Oregon. The week before was a Billy Idol tribute. Next up is a Pink Floyd tribute playing Dark Side of the Moon—the night before the eclipse.
Whoo hoo! Go community!
To see your neighbors dancing in the park. To see folks handing out free H20 bottles because it’s so darn hot. To see the lead singer suddenly stop in the middle of the set, and point above us ”hey everybody, look at the moon,” while we en masse look up at the moon, which is waxing gibbous in the still-blue sky, and is a beautiful sight to behold on that hot August night.
Community. It’s alive and well.
Collective soul is doing fine.
Pay attention to the reality around you.
We are connecting more every day.
