It's summer, 1976. We are rehearsing in the new Naropa Assembly Hall at 1111 Pearl Street. I love this photograph by Robert Del Tradici. The light is rich and revealing, streaming in the open windows. Across 10th Street you an see the windows of the Boulder Ballet Academy studio. I would take class there, one of the longest practices of my life. In the past THIS ROOM has been a social dance hall, a photographer's studio, the shrine room for the Vajradhatu Buddhist community. Naropa will inhabit the space for about 6 years then move in 1982 to 2130 Arapahoe Avenue. Sometime in the '90's David Bolduc will turn it into the Boulder Bookstore. So it was a full circle to come here for the first book reading from This Very Moment event in October 2015.
