Yesterday Ann Cohen came over to do a very magical concert of Songs and poems. Some of the poems were by her late husband, Allen... a major alternative cultural figure of the sixies [the force behind the San Francisco underground paper THE ORACLE and the organizer of THE BE- IN [trying to bring the San Francisco hippies and the Berkeley political activists together].
Ann is a force herself... playing her hand made harp as we talked, making up Songs jamming with what we were saying.
we were kids in ann's school for tots.
When we were talking about Louise Scott [who opened everything up for me forty years ago], Louise called right then. magic.
