hey world

The best way to avoid a bad action is by doing a good one, for there is no difficulty in the world like that of trying to do nothing.
John Clare (b. 13 July, 1793 - 1864)

we had a great weekend - it was especially full and fun because of friends visiting from out of town. I can never get enough of this family .....and just why is it that they aren't living in cleveland anymore? oh yeah, the cold and a chronic case of parental wanderlust. well, that's cool as long as there is no permanent emigration plan to some far away land.

no time to write much, but I wanted to pop in and share this song. I love when I read comments thanking the mouse for introducing a musical group. if michael franti and spearhead aren't yet household names, I thought I'd do a good action and help make it so

I adore this song... I only came aware of michael franti and spearhead a year ago, when I posted a song of theirs that fit perfectly with a post. now they are absolute favorites, I'm quite interested in seeing them live. however, there's no sign that they are coming to cleveland, but they will be in nyc early september, hmmmm I wonder if I can pull a trip off? I better decide soon and act fast I'm sure the tickets are going like hot cakes!

Now this is the Michael Franti I'm used to hearing. Thanks for posting.

Yeah, I'm used to the whole family-in-diaspora thing; none of my family lives in the town we grew up in any more. Thanksgiving is usually when we get together as a group. That way it's fun - long exposure to each other can sometimes get fractious, so holiday/occasional gatherings work best.

I'll be back for a full listen. Enjoy the folks and the summer days, kim.

kimy, WOW. Just WOW. You do intro some fascinating songs. And this is a great one. Never heard of Michael Franti but I have now. Pretty moving music and vid.

And as for the "ice cream kids", a...dor..a...ble!

He is near the top of my list of must sees, and has been for a while. Will be here next Tuesday, but only as supporting cast. I'm still thinking about it...

I always love your musical choices.

High fives are way out of style, aren't they? It's the Barack/Michelle fist bump now, isn't it?

Love MF, he's a regular visitor to our Blues and Roots festival. Defo worth a trip to New York . .well isn't anything worth a trip to NY?
