On Friday, November 1, 2013, the jazz trio Shikantaza will be performing at the South Brunswick Jazz Café. The word shikantaza, translated literally as just sitting, refers to a form of Japanese Zen Buddhist meditation. The ensemble seeks to create musical environments that quiet the mind and open the heart. Shikantaza explores the jazz canon, making familiar works uniquely their own, and offers original compositions developed improvisationally. Their music draws inspiration from many genres. Shikantaza features Doug Miller on piano, Bernhard Geiger on acoustic bass, Brandon Lewin on percussion, and special guests Lori Pantaleo, Tanya Saunders and Robert Bullington on vocals.

Jazz Café performances are sponsored by the South Brunswick Arts Commission. They are held monthly on Friday evenings from 8 to 10 pm at the Herb Eckert Auditorium in the Senior Center at the South Brunswick Municipal Complex, located at 540 Route 522, Monmouth Junction. Admission is $6 and light refreshments are served. Doors open at 7:30 pm. For more information call 732-329-4000, ext. 7635.

Under the Harvest Moon

by Carl Sandburg

Under the harvest moon,
When the soft silver
Drips shimmering
Over the garden nights,
Death, the gray mocker,
Comes and whispers to you
As a beautiful friend
Who remembers.

    Under the summer roses
When the flagrant crimson
Lurks in the dusk
Of the wild red leaves,
Love, with little hands,
Comes and touches you
With a thousand memories
And asks you
Beautiful, unanswerable questions.

More Tarps — Now They're Brown

The tarps covering roofs in the community aren't just blue—there are brown ones, too. Again we ask the question: Why isn't Princeton Landing repairing roof leaks more promptly?
