Sails

To the ends of the Earth.


The remnants of a romantic teenager know and love these words

Defining every time, place, and distance, every view or condition available to experience.

It sings hope and a foundation of commitment for a journey so long it’s infinite But the Earth is round, kid. You’ll keep going and going If you walk or swim, boat or train You'll wind up here, right where you started this thing. Gosh, how’s it feel to call names like “kid” You know the wind so well you won't fill your sails with it. You know yourself so well you got to this version and quit. There’s so much more, just look from this pebbled beach at the cosmic shore On the edge of heaven or in the starry eyes of one called her But by all means, share your radial facts to teach me what life is for To the ends of the Earth I say, for these words are the wind To the ends of the Earth To the ends of the Earth I was thinking about this month’s program theme.. FRINGE. It means, of course, the edge, the outskirts, the border. Can you imagine when no one sailed across the ocean before? The dangerous curiosity so much they went for it, they were crazy! I met Dale Heinen maybe 6 or 7 years ago, she was inspired by live theatre programs she’d experienced in Europe that took place outside the mainstream venues in non-traditional places and in experimental forms of performance - a format referred to as a “Fringe Festival.” She and a partner founded her take on these ideas in Cleveland. They named it BorderLight with the first festival taking place in 2019 and continuing on today. The fringe in cultural activity is an interesting thing - because things on the fringe are only such so long as they aren’t normal or popular. Once the fringe is normal the thing that used to be normal is now, on the fringe! Dizzying I know. Such is life.
