In my count down of reasons to come to the Light the Hearth festival tomorrow, #8 oh such beautiful weather for a run in the Jamison Square fountain, #7 oh such beautiful weather for the Free Music jam with Adam Sherburne at 5:30 (bring your own instrument or grab one of ours! Including this toy piano I scavenged from a free pile last night that made a cameo in Jamison Square today and got played by many) #6 oh such beautiful weather to browse the pop up art exhibit by p:ear artists. https://www.facebook.com/events/731263530365201/?ti=icl

Two weeks today until the Light the Hearth festival at Jamison Square Park! Here's my countdown of 15 reasons why I urge you to attend. Drumroll ... #15: p:ear youth will read from their Old Town Zine at 4:30. They will also be there covering the festival as journalists. (If you don't already know about the importance of p:ear, this is a great way to learn. p:ear builds positive relationships with homeless and transitional youth through education, art and recreation...)

Thanks for invite. I'll be leaving the next day on a long trip so it depends on what I need yet to do.
