Established in 1919

October 14, 2012


T & K had a choir performance yesterday evening. I was happy and proud, as a father of 5 1/2 and 3-year-old cuties should be. But it was not just about their performance “on stage”, it was also about the “stage” and the audience. The little choir they are in is part of a Worker’s Cultural and Educational Association Solidarity that was established in our adopted little town back in 1919 and to me, yesterday’s event was about community in the most positive sense of the word. People of different ages and walks of life, sharing a common affinity, having a common reference point and experience at some point in their lives, either as children or as adults, in a way getting connected to the generations before them and keeping alive a pass time activity for those yet to come. It was nice to see familiar faces of clerks and train commuters in a different setting, and to see people who do something more than simply sit in front of TV. And of course, to see the little girls performing without stage fright, sweet as candy. Slowly growing up and into a community.

    I love to see old things used for their intended purpose whether it’s a building, machine or item of clothing. There is just something transporting about doing something in the way it was done in generations past.
