Day 27

Day 27 – Total confirmed cases in US: 501,680

…and on on the 27th day, despair rested…


I have a buoyant spirit. It can’t be held down for very long. It gravitates toward inspiration

Sadness comes, of its course, to everyone. A person we love dies, or moves away, or doesn’t love us back, or loves us back in a terrible way and drags our spirit down.

A spirit can rise every day like the sun. And blaze and glow and share its light. And one day, of its course, will explode and leave behind a hole.

But now, while my spirit lives, and walks among the others here, I will try to guide its course above inevitable sadness.

New album "Observations" available now. A veteran of NYC’s underground music scene, Mike Power played on the stages of such beloved lost venues as CBGB’s and Kenny’s Castaways, as well as stalwart surviving ones like Arlene’s Grocery and the Bitter End as singer/songwriter/bassist with Late Model Humans. In 2020, quarantining from the global pandemic he worked remotely with other artists to record a collection of new music called Observations, that infuses his punk roots with introspective acoustic pieces.
