HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Rainier Maria RilkeDec. 4, 1875 ~ born, Bohemian-Austrian poet Rainier Maria Rilke, considered one of the most significant poets in the German language. Orphic voice of the mystic poet as creator of worlds. His most famous prose works are the Letters to a Young Poet and the semi-autobiographical Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge, and he wrote more than 400 poems in French.

POET

O hour of my muse: why do you leave me,
Wounding me by the wingbeats of your flight?
Alone: what shall I use my mouth to utter?

How shall I pass my days? And how my nights?

I have no one to love. I have no home.
There is no center to sustain my life.
All things to which I give myself grow rich
and leave me spent, impoverished, alone.

Rainier Maria Rilke

BONE SONGS by Gail Mitchell
Bird Songs by Gail Mitchell

Bone Song #2

The city dwellers dig the bones
wear them as jewelry
on their ears and wrist

Wrap them around their hearts
talk to them in cool notes
of blue December

The city dwellers eat of the flesh
carve the bones   ruins of yesterday
paint their eyelids purple
and their songs disappear as they
are sung   disappear into the boneyard

Their eyes cloud over their mouths
stretch back to show teeth
The bone man sings his bone song
and has a bone tattoo

He has been a bone man all his life
born into as in a caste system
He will be a bone man till he dies

Gail Mitchell,
from Bone Songs,
Taurean Horn Press (1999)

GONE BEYOND

Dec. 2012~ San Francisco native
Dan HarringtonDec. 2012~ San Francisco native
Dan Harrington, musicIan. Music was Dan's life. He enjoyed sitting outside the Trieste and playing one or more instruments from his large collection. He also wrote songs that were much appreciated by his fans. Dan was a quiet courteous man in this world but not of it. And he left the world as unobtrusively as he had lived in it.
Dan Harrington died a month after being diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. His music and his gentle ways are missed by his friends and fans.

Ohlone Elders and Youth Speak:
Restoring A California Legacy.
(Through Sunday, January 04, 2015)
ongoing exhibition
This exhibition celebrates multi-generational efforts of the Ohlone people to keep their cultures alive and thriving. Photographs and oral histories dispel the myth that the Ohlone are extinct and illuminate the
life experience of people living between two
cultures that are often in opposition.
The exhibit reflects the challenges of 21st Century Ohlone: protection of burial and other sacred sites, truth-telling regarding the history of California Native people, the significance of the arts and crafts revival, and a vision for the future for the Ohlone peoples.

Artists & Editions: A Publication
in Memory of Steven Leiber (1957–2012)

October 18, 2014 – March 29, 2015

Steven Leiber, a San Francisco native, made his reputation as a collector specializing in ephemera—brochures, flyers, posters, and exhibition announcements—designed by
artists in the 1960s and 1970s.

Artists & Editions: A Publication
He maintained a gallery in the basement of his grandmother’s house in the city’s Marina district, calling it Steven Leiber’s Basement. As Leiber sorted and organized ephemera relating to Fluxus art, Beat and Concrete poetry movements, and the 1960s counterculture, he invited art scholars, curators, artists, and ephemera aficionados to explore his inventory.
