Dick and Jane Song of the Week: Out Of My Shell

Jul 14, 2015

Trying to tell, but the words don't come,
Hiding behind a wall that I built myself,
Hoping this will end, I'm pushing against me,
Trying to change who I think I might be, 
Scared of what I might become,
Wanting to be unseen and unheard, 
I  hide behind the glass,
Carefully choosing, constantly thinking 
what I look like to them.

This past July 10th through July 12th,  I spent a  weekend in Cleveland for the fourth consecutive year  to take in the always well-presented Tri-C (Cuyahoga Community College) Jazz Festival. Tri-C Jazz Fest Director Terri Pontremoli, 90.3-FM WCPN IdeaStream, Key Bank, the Gund Foundation , the Ohio Arts Council and many others collaborated to bring a dazzling roster of world renowned artists to multiple theatre stages in Playhouse Square, the  “lively arts” heart of Cleveland.

Jul 7, 2015

There's a party going on right here 
Just dance around and don't stop 
Over there I see my dear 
Let's make some corn and make it pop 
Everybody is filled with cheer 
Let's get some chips and quac 

We've got noise makers 
and my locker shakers 
It's Friday Night 
Let this party shine 
It's party time!
