“Come on, people now, smile on your brother, everybody get together, try to love one another right now.” - Chet Powers This is going to be a long one, so buckle up. As many of you know, I ask musicians who perform at my venue in Second Life to choose a theme - an idea or even a word - that will inform and guide the songs they play. I started this during the holiday season in the middle of the COVID pandemic as I was facing Thanksgiving, my birthday, X-mas, and the start of the New Year with no one but my cats to keep me company.
Jena! My Gawd! Thank you for the list of ways to contribute to Ukraine! Thank you for the poem! And thank you for--once again!--stepping up and bringing music into our hearts!
Thank you for sharing history and context for Pass Along Songs. It is wonderful that the concerts are available outside of SL to listen to and share. The poem in today's post reached deep feelings. I have never been in war, yet, I have grown up surrounded by continuous preparation for it, oiling the guns, practicing trenches, every young man a soldier for a time. Thank you for sharing.
