World Factbook Entry

"The Earth is an Indian thing." - Kerouac

It's maybe 1956 or 1962, or some other time, because a calendar is just a map of time. The Village is a Beat community of poets, artists, musicians, writers and thinkers.

Kerouac also said, "It is because I am Beat, that is, I believe in beatitude and that God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son to it... Who knows, but that the universe is not one vast sea of compassion actually, the veritable holy honey, beneath all this show of personality and cruelty?"

Beat? Make yourself at home here. The espresso is hot, the pastry is fresh, and the soup will be ready in a few minutes.

Hey daddios, we're back. We've been on a road trip, saw some heavy stuff around the country, we're back.

So you know the Woodstock festival is next week. They're working on it now. They even put an announcement up here

It's worth going there and commenting or sharing the news or something?

Anyway, we'll be going, and like last year maybe we can organize vans or buses or something.

Just had a look around. Hey Poets, you letting unsavory types hang around the coffee house now?

Yeah we always try to support the festival, we've supported them since they restarted the festivals, just like we helped with the first one. You went last year Bards, and yeah, like we should get a bus or two together.

Unsavory types? I sure hope not. You know something the rest of us don't?

Anyway, let's get you some espresso and something to eat.

Resistance, pull up a seat. I'll pull an espresso and the new girl will bring a menu.

I'm heading to Woodstock for the weekend, maybe give a reading or something. I'll be back. There's a couple of spaces left on the coach, we leave from the corner of Washington Square West and W 4th in about a half hour.

Sounds good.

Sorry people, it's been a frazzled month.

I'll start pumping out the espresso. Baker's truck will be here any minute.

The nice old lady living upstairs baked a load of fresh pastries and cakes - we've got apple pies and pineapple cheesecakes, crumb cake, crullers, and crescent rolls. She wants to do this for us a few times a week in exchange for a reduction in rent, so we're going to try it. I don't want her to get hurt or tire herself out but if it works it's a good deal for her and us.

There've been rumors of some poetry readings this weekend but nobody's contacted me yet. So we'll see. I'm thinking we should have open mike nights once in awhile to see if it works.
