Kemp Harris is a local musician who has lived in Cambridge since 1978. He has an extensive bio that includes: acting, composing, teaching, and writing. We had a long conversation, which included all the hot button issues locally and nationally: over-development, gentrification, and racism in America, but it is the music and artfulness of Harris that I chose to focus on.

Growing a Community

Cambridge community gardens bring nature and friendship to the urban environment

Living in the city of Cambridge has many benefits: a diverse population, thousands of caring citizens, various types of restaurants, a vibrant creative community and the convenience of urban life. What the city lacks is what most cities lack: nature.

A lack of nature and opportunity to connect with the earth is why the Community Garden Program, run by the Conservation Commission, is so important.

Local restaurants offer meals at On The Rise

Lunches for homeless women have been special this week

Lunches for homeless offered at On The Rise

This has been a week of stand-out lunches at On The Rise, Inc., the day program for homeless women at 341 Broadway. Meals provided by volunteers on weekdays are a mainstay of the program, and this week several local restaurants came together in support of that operation. They have been bringing in selections from their menus--not normally an option for the women seeking assistance at On The Rise.

I missed all the online outrage about Kim Kardashian being on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine, but I did suffer my own indignation when I received that particular issue in my mailbox. It also happened to be my re-subscription issue.
