I want this world to be a better place. When you are finished rolling your eyes and if you have not yet clicked on the back button, I'll keep going. I don't always know how to do this, but it is what I want. This prospect is not easy, and I'm sure it won't always be pleasant. Making the world better means looking at the ugliness that is making it worse. It means dwelling in uncomfortable places so that we can visualize and move towards that beautiful, peaceful existence for which we all need to strive. It means finding humor in unexpected places and sharing the levity that can bring us all up and out of the darkness that sometimes surrounds us. Through music and words, I will try to realize and share these ideals. I invite you to join me and help me along. I don't have all the answers. My grammar and spelling might need work along with my limited understanding of complex topics about which many of you will know much more. I need your eyes, ears, and voice. No one can do this alone.
