Sacred Space

For so many in the Miami Valley, Glen Helen in Yellow Springs is one of the area’s best nature destinations if not a sacred site. For me, it’s both; some days I need an aerobic walk; on others, I need to wander, dream and write poetry. But I always feel Helen’s healing power.

On Saturday, June 27, 2015, Honoring the Glen:  A concert and Art Show (and fundraiser for the Glen) will be co-hosted by Antioch University Midwest and Tecumseh Land Trust, beginning with an art show and simultaneous kids’ activity from 5-6:45 p.m. Attendees will also be treated to the all-Glen paintings of Roger Smith as well as work by Leah Grohmann. If you come hungry, La Pampa Argentine Grill will be open for business in AUM’s parking lot by 5:00. Free desserts will be available inside, all of which will whet your appetite for the evening’s main event.

Inspired by the Glen

Shortly after 7:00 p.m., guitarist/singer/songwriter Scott Lindberg and his duet partner Amy Blue, along with bass player Matt Minde and percussionist Ryan Stimson, will take the stage to perform original songs inspired by Glen Helen.

If you’d like a preview, visit www.yellowspringsmusic.com. They’ll be even better live, as the energy flows among audience, performers and inspirational source—Glen Helen. And Antioch University Midwest has provided the perfect setting with its comfy, acoustically fine auditorium. There may even be a door prize or two.

It’s Even Literary

Scott and Amy have asked me to kick off the show with a couple of Glen Helen-inspired poems. It should be a memorable evening as we invoke the spirit of Helen Birch Bartlett, for whom the 1,000-acre Glen is named, with word and song.

Don’t Get Lost!

The event takes place at Antioch University Midwest (not Antioch College), 900 Dayton Street, Yellow Springs, Ohio, which is located at  the intersection of Dayton Street and East Enon Road at the village’s western edge. Watch for signs guiding you to the parking lot. Directions are available at http://antiochmidwest1-px.rtrk.com/about-aum/driving-directions/

I hope to see you there!
