“We are the music makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams;
World-losers and world-forsakers,
On whom the pale moon gleams:
Yet we are the movers and shakers
Of the world for ever, it seems.”
– “Ode” by Arthur O’Shaughnessy
Having the courage to dream of a bigger and brighter future for West Virginia can feel like lonely work at times.
Sometimes it seems like you’re out on your own. Or that your vision of the future is not realistic. Or that the forces working against you are insurmountable.
Never fear. The Hub is always here for you.
Come to Hubapalooza this year. You’ll find your people, you’ll find your strength, and you’ll find your inspiration.
