Believe it or not, it gets mighty cold here in paradise without a warm heart to wake up to and hug like yours. For Sept 11, I was at the Maui war memorial stadium. I was playing "We are the World" on guitar in a band and singing it with the choir for a memorial here on Maui, it was videotaped. It was my first big-time public performance on Maui. As soon as our segment in the memorial show was over, I rushed to the studios of Maui public Access TV where a co-producer of my own TV show; the Maui Artists Showcase, Three Singing Eagles, was producing her own show -- going out live (mine is tapped) to Maui and the other islands.
Its a call in show, but nobody called in... so i borrowed a cell phone and i did. I spoke of how creative this planet is...and what a waste our current versions of political and government control systems are, and how much love gets snuffed because of greed and fear, anger, jealousy and rage...which I happen to feel when I think how this world could be in Peace if not for our seeming inability to cooperate, collaborate as nations, and to commune as a planets people in Harmony with each other. "Imagine no possessions, I wonder if you can? No greed or Anger, a brotherhood of Man."
Three singing Eagles didn't have the crew (volunteer) she needed, so when I arrived unannounced, I manned the three cameras that were locked down without operators, and helped deliver some interesting images. Time for closing credits... I got out my guitar and sang COOL IN THE SHADE. I had my spotlight, liberated and shared my talent and love and considered how lucky i am to be lifted out of my depressions over the state of this world, thanks to good friends like you, my family and the great Director, upstairs.
May happiness, Peace and healing fill your Spirit and lungs with every breath, always!
