World Hoop Day.
Observing 080808 in Wicker Park. Giving hoops to the underprivileged, and spreading hoop play. "The simple hoop has positive physical and mental health benefits, stimulates imaginations, and enables feelings of pure joy and bliss." Coincidentally this is Hula-Hoop's 50th anniversary. Next events: 2009.09.09, 2010.10.10, 2011.11.11, 2012.12.12. Posting this album a month later, tears welled; such was the profound human beauty of this event, even the DJ rocked.
