May 7th 2016 (5/7/16, or 20160507) poetry performance (with accompanying guitar music by John) of Janet Kuypers’ first scheduled Austin poetry feature through Expressions 2016: Reasons to be Cheerful at Austin’s the Bahá’í Center (at 2215 E M Franklin Ave, Austin, TX 78723) after her move, and because this was also her wedding anniversary, they started the evening with her and John singing the song friends performed at their wedding — Depeche Mode’s “The Bottom Line” (with altered chorus lyrics for their wedding). So enjoy this set os poems (set to music in the show) about not only astronomy but also love, in “Love in the Universe”.
