To the dull mind all nature is leaden. To the illumined mind the whole world burns and sparkles with light.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

8/6 Thursday, 7pm-9pm Spoken Word hosted by Eve Star You are cordially invited to Coastal Coffee Roaster’s Thursday night spoken word, Strangers in a Strange Land, hosted by Eve Star. From seven to nine o’clock, every Thursday evening, we will convene beside the coffee bins and weave our words into the background sound of next door’s Open Mic Night, hosted by Fleming Moore. Snack or dine, sip coffee or wine, and join in the exploration of rhythm and poetry as we gather together around This Stage.
This Stage is an Embassy, and we are all Strangers in a Strange Land. Each of us walked a different road to get here, and now, we are safe.
This Stage is a Youth Hostel and we are all Travelers. We speak different languages, know different customs and tell many different tales. This Stage is a Mountaintop. No body owns This Stage. We gather here to cast our eyes 360 degrees and see what we cannot see alone. We gather here to carry on the ancient, oral tradition of our ancesotors; to speak, to listen, and to remember.
