In the Happy Valley (MA), there is a little town named Williamsburg. In that little town there is a general store. The general store has a porch. On the porch there is a community bulletin board. Tacked to the community bulletin board is a piece of art. The piece of art is waiting for a particular singer-songwriter who lives in that little town in the Happy Valley.
