Nightmare on 42nd Street

It's summertime. Livin' is easy, & lovin' is large. Everybody just wants to take in the sunshine...strolling, rolling, or sitting 'n sipping sweet organic coolers all over town. Right?

It shouldn't be that difficult to get from here to there, east side to west, without losing our cool...feeling covered in grime both inside and out...cranky and full of angst. That grid lock's gotta go.

Time's Up! has 2 special events scheduled tomorrow, Friday July 14 in Brooklyn & Manhattan...for live music & all you need to know, click here. Another group of active bikers and walkers tackling this problem is BikeNY.org. One of their tours, the Harlem (not Hudson) Valley Rail Ride is July 30. Or, check out Transportation Alternatives...with videos, dvds (now playing: Contested Streets) and all sorts of "educational programs" to help humans access the city streets in a more userfriendly way. Rock Roll Ride ny.

Great to hear what is happening in your city. People are wanting new ways. Next Sunday I am going to an event at the Brisbane Arts Festival in Australia called `The Earth Dialogues.' They have speakers from all around the world looking at how we can create a better world. I will be attending their `Innovaton and Inspiration' session and hope to learn so much, best wishes, The Artist.
