Every time I visit the East End, I feel your pulse. Whether the evening is warm and sultry like tonight or cold and windy in February, there is a powerful heartbeat right around The Little Theatre.

Tonight, I attended a documentary showing at The Little and more than 150 people packed the theater to watch a documentary about the great Marlon Brando. In that room, and in The Little Cafe, and at Hart's Grocers and at Matthews and at City Grill and Murphy's Law and Matt Groaning's and Arena's Florist and Spin Cafe, the air was pulsing with people, sounds, music, and energy. 

You have a pulse, my pretty lady. A strong pulse. And more often than not, I feel it strongest around The East End. From that pulse, you are doing so well. Good health for years to come.
