Beatitudes of Buylessness | The Stop Shopping Choir

 

“SOME SHOWS ARE MAGIC NO-ONE KNOWS WHY. This green room video perhaps has the mysterious seed in it. Can you find it? The show that followed, in old St Anne’s Church, a sort of smallish cathedral in Brooklyn, was the illuminating show of our spring. From the opening moment when Gregory began to sing the Wendell Berry poem that he set to music “And When I Rise” – through to the Fabulous Sainting of anti-gentrification fighters Shatia Strothers and Amani Henry, the evening sang with some special truth. We all knew it. All of us were taken on that flight and we are so grateful for it.” ~ Billy Talen

Who’s Writing?

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn likes progressive politics and loves the canines. She writes fiction about Chester, the Alpha Bichon -- with a dash of humor and a dab of Poli-Sci. Her views and insights are tinted by a former profession in Counseling, Christian theological studies, and training in Library and Information Science. Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.

Chester

Chester is a scruffy little Bichon dog, with a congenial Napoleon Complex, and stars in "The Chester Chronicles." He sometimes reports independent Canine News -- NO corporate treats accepted, NO corporate bias. Woof!

Graffiti Girl

Graffiti Girl (GG) is curator at JoAnnChateau.com. She's progressive to the core, and easily blown away by serendipity and/or good food. (OK, GG is really JoAnn.) GG's posts signal that news or content from another website is a "must-see" and "must-remember."
