This past Wednesday evening was an energizing “suite for change.”  A dozen folksingers performed at the First Unitarian Church of Columbus encouraging participation in the upcoming election.  Holly Near was the key artist who brought together Laura Love, emma’s revolution, John McCutcheon, the Prince Myshkins, Roy Zimmerman, Andre dos Santos Morgan, Vanessa and Tamara Torres, Tory Trujillo, and Poet On Watch.  I especially liked two pieces done by Roy Zimmerman.  In one he used an innocuous metaphor to represent the Presidency.  In the other, he quoted George W. Bush directly to create a humorous but sadly accurate representation of what we have had to live through these past eight years.  The full house appreciated the uplifting music.  Let’s hope we soon can celebrate a change in direction.
