It's been good to know ya!

Well, what do you know. 50+ years after being blacklisted from television for having communist friends, Pete Seeger was at the Lincoln Memorial today, playing in front of thousands of people including future president Barack Obama. Seeger, his grandson & Bruce Springsteen played a singalong version of Woody Guthrie's most famous song, This Land is Your Land.

On an unrelated night, my pal Glorious is heading to Maui in a couple of weeks & that got me to thinking about our trip to Hawaii & looking at pictures. One of the things that excited me most about Hawaii is going to the edge of a cliff & watching the waves crash against the rocks. It is pure, unadulterated nature, it's extremely powerful, dangerous & beautiful. The rocks stop the water at an instant, & over the course of many years the water slowly erodes & sculpts the rocks. It's just like life, I guess, some things change you at an instant & others slowly work on you.
