Thank You Charlotte Bronte

Female authors have always struggled to be taken objectively, for this reason and others far more oppressive in the past they have used pen names, often male. Still today many use pen names or initials in the hopes of being judged fairly. It is a funny thing, since reading is one of the best things that we can do to learn critical thinking, compassion, empathy and imagination. Why should marketing and sexism detract from precious books and thought?

Here is to the excellent authors mentioned, and those that could not fit in the song, and to books themselves, our dearest friends, the books!

Please enjoy this song and video, and let us know who your favorite authors are!

Friday January 31st at The Dolphin 🐬! Music from the Forest, the City and the Sea…

This Friday is going to be very special… The Dolphin Bookshop has a magic that surrounds you before you realize it. The Repressions will  play in the stage/ seating/cafe area, with a beautiful bookshop to the right, more books and toys to the left, original art and color all around… It is not just “one” kind of place, and therefore inspiring and imperceptibly comfortable. No cover charge and all ages are welcome… The music begins at 7pm!

A SONG FOR ICHARUS – New Video

A SONG FOR ICHARUS June 2017

Let me down
I know I cannot hit that high
Bring me down
It’s not a place that I can live
Please kill this climb so fast it dies
Let me down
The clamber can’t be comprehended
Backward space can’t be transcended
Disappoint me now may I descend
We always know the top’s the end
Let me down
You know I cannot scale that sky
Bring me down
It’s not a place where I can live
Please kill this climb so fast it dies inside my mind
Let me down
The undermost should be by home
The bottom rock fell on my head
I’ll burrow in the basic basement
Content a life with no event
Please bury me some more……… Bury me some more
Let me down
You know I cannot crucify
Bring me down
It’s not a place where I can live
Please kill this climb so fast it dies inside my mind before the time
Let me down
It’s safer sinking sliding, let me scramble off your shoulders
I can’t fall fast enough fail fast I can’t let fate fare bolder
Take me below with words you know will mar me
Lacerate me harm me strike me now and scar me
Bust me up to keep me down now
I’ll clutch the ground now
Please bury me some more…….. Bury me some more
Let me down
You know it tore me up to try
Bring me down
I never should have tried to glide
It’s not a place where I can live
My childish strive can you forgive me
Please kill this climb so fast it dies inside my mind before the time will find me rising
Let me down
Let me down
Let me down
Please kill this climb so fast it dies inside my mind before the time will find me rising
We always know the top’s the end.
