Byrd's callin'

With the arrival of bluebirds (see "Zip-a-dee-doo-dah," bit.ly/1lfqxW6, HamletHub.com, February 22, 2014) and Garbanzofest III at Byrd's Books in Bethel (ByrdsBooks.com),  what a better weekend to romp into Spring. Never you mind that you've lost a glove on Main Street, many others have. It's simply a sign that Spring is just 'round the corner. The Chili Winter Warm-Up marked the change in seasonings. Saying goodbye to Jack Frost, CityCenter Danbury captured first place in the non-profit division (see "Chili cook off," http://bit.ly/1mDq5mc, News Times, February 24, 2014), proving that Downtown is Happening. Una noticia asombrosa! 

As Downtown is Happening, so (too) Danbury is Hub. Did you know that Danbury is ranked #6 among the top ten for resident artists per capita? Win, place, and show: Santa Fe, San Francisco, New York. Not bad for this enterprising centerpiece of the Housatonic Valley, where "living creatively, energizing the economy" is the maxim, "something is going on" is a given, and Byrd's callin' is a-lure. Garbanzo poet Nancy Scott wrote, "…some things cannot be bought but are more valuable for being earned. And some things are unexpected and mysterious. And some need soaking and cooking." It's time to stroll down Main Street, count my beans, and lose a glove.

The DisH (overheard): "It's not time to discuss Time Management." When is?
