Intention Setting Workshop with Gabriella Feingold on Zoom
7:30 PM - 8:45 PM

This is a disorienting time. Nothing is normal and yet most days we try to get as close to normal as possible. There is so much push and pull between what we feel we should be doing, what we are called to be doing, and what we are or aren’t able to do.

Join life coach Gabriella Feingold to set intentions for this next period of time. Setting intentions invites us to ask ourselves not what we want to accomplish or achieve, but who we want to be. What quality do you want to cultivate in yourself right now? What are you holding onto that you would like to let go of?

On this call we will start with a grounding exercise and check in as a group. Then we will silently reflect on some prompts to help us set our intentions. You will be invited to share your intention with the group if you’d like and then we’ll do some further reflection to consider what our first action step might be. You are welcome to set an intention specific to this unique period of quarantine and unrest or to set an intention relating to other parts of your life that have been wanting your attention.

You are encouraged to bring a journal/pen or to have a blank document open to record your reflections in.

Boston Marathon: History by the Mile with Paul Clerici
7:30 PM - 8:45 PM

Come meet local author Paul C. Clerici as he discusses his popular book Boston Marathon: History by the Mile.

Hear all the great stories about the very beginnings of the race in Ashland; the various start lines in Hopkinton; the year in which a train cut through the race in Framingham; the Scream Tunnel of women at Wellesley College; the Johnny Kelley statue in Newton; the different finish lines in Boston; and much, much more.

In his book, the award-winning writer takes readers through the colorful 26.2-mile journey - mile by mile, town by town, story by story. With his unique vast array of experiences and knowledge - he has run the Boston Marathon 23 times and has covered it for over 30 years now - Clerici brings the great race to life through informative, humorous, and enlightening detail that includes stories about every statue, moment, landmark, and portion of the course from its start in 1897 to its current incarnation. With forewords by Boston Marathon race director Dave McGillivray and the first woman to complete the race - Roberta “Bobbi” Gibb - the book also features a wide range of vintage and race-day photos, some of which never before published.

 

About Paul Clerici: A freelance journalist, photographer, and former newspaper editor, Paul delivers talks and lectures at libraries, historical societies, bookstores, running clubs; appears at expos, book signings, group meetings; appears on television (NECN, cable stations, etc.), radio (NPR, local and city stations, etc.), and media outlets including “The Boston Globe” and the “Cape Cod Times.” Race director of the “Camy 5K Run & David 5K Walk” in Walpole, he has competed in nearly every distance from the mile to the marathon - including two triathlons, 43 marathons, the Falmouth Road Race several times - and has won numerous age-group and Clydesdale running awards.

He is also the author of A History of the Falmouth Road Race: Running Cape Cod and History of the Greater Boston Track Club.

Books will be available to purchase and be signed by the author.

Climate Change in the MetroWest
7:30 PM - 8:45 PM

The Metrowest area has changed much in the last 400 years: from forest to farm to town and now suburb. Now, more recently, we are seeing rapid changes going on around us. From weather extremes like wetter springs and spells of drought to extensive heat, torrential downpours and tornado warnings. How are these and other changes affecting our area wildlife and us? Find out!

Joy Marzolf has been a Naturalist and Educator for over 20 years, the last 13 at Mass Audubon’s Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary in Natick. She regularly presents to groups in the MetroWest area on a variety of topics, using her photos and videos to illustrate her programs.

Sunday Sips & Sounds: Julian Loida on Vibraphone
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Stop by the library to relax and enjoy a free concert in the Rotunda, and a free cup of coffee or tea during our monthly Sunday Sips & Sounds concert series, January through May.

Called a “thought provoker” by Boston Voyager, Julian Loida is a Boston-based percussionist, composer, and producer. Loida’s musical curiosity and open-mindedness has propelled him towards a wide-range of sounds, genres, and artistic endeavors. He’s performed jazz, folk, and classical, collaborating with dancers, visual artists, songwriters/composers, and musicians of all stripes. The thirst to participate in and experience this range of sounds is partly a product of Loida’s synesthesia. Music is a full- body experience for him, with sounds often invoking involuntary sensations of color, texture, or even taste.

Loida often writes and arranges for his projects and ensembles (the Cuban/Brazilian band INA~, jazz quintet Mojuba´, chamber-folk band Night Tree), and his music has been featured in film. His interdisciplinary projects aim at breaking down artistic barriers. The evening-length solo-project Recital of Dedications incorporates speech, visual media, and music into a series of dedications to individuals, historical moments, and more. In 2018, he released the album Bach LIVE!, featuring J.S. Bach’s music arranged for percussion. Loida’s upcoming 2019 release, Wallflower, marks his solo-album debut, and also provides the clearest distillation of his voice as a composer to date.

Loida has toured internationally as a featured artist at Korro¨, Sweden’s largest folk music festival, and played some of the most prestigious music festivals in the U.S. such as Spoleto, New World Festival, the Exit Zero jazz festival, Caramoor American Roots Festival, and Round Top Music Festival. He has performed with groups such as Alarm Will Sound, the Callithumpian Consort, and the Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra.

As an educator, Loida shares his scores and deep rhythmic knowledge with students of all ages. In 2017, he received his Master’s Degree in Classical Percussion from New England Conservatory. More information can be found at http://www.julianloida.com/.

Sunday Sips & Sounds is supported in part by a grant from the Wayland Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.

Great Presenters: Conrad Gees - Cuba - More than Classic American Cars & 1950s Nostalgia
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

There is truth in the statement, “Havana is a city frozen in time 60+ years ago,” but it is a characterization which can lead one to a false sense of sentimentality or condescension. Havana today is the outgrowth of the 1959 Revolution, the US Embargo, the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union, which forced the inhabitants of this city, just 90 miles off the US coast, to develop in ways they can speak of with great pride, and in ways which leave them longing for more. I have concentrated on the sections of Havana known as “Habana Vieja” and “Centro Habana,” now United Nations World Heritage sites being renovated and brought back to life and
decided to document not only the buildings, but the people living in these sections of the city and their resilience and ingenuity.

Conrad Gees is a retired Wayland School Teacher who now has the time to pursue his love of photographing the world around him. His photography is aimed at trying to record what Henri Cartier Bresson described as “the decisive moment” - moments when “swift chance, disarray, wonder and experiment” lead to an image which speaks to more than the subject at hand, much as a poem can convey meaning far beyond a literal interpretation. He looks forward to viewers seeing this in his photographs - many of which are on display here on the Raytheon Room walls.
