Haven't put up a new song since January, so here's a one-take demo of one I wrote in about 15 minutes while getting ready to send my son off to college.
All it takes are some heartfelt words of encouragement to help someone rise above their inner voices of self-doubt to achieve their potential. I wouldn’t have pursued a deeper study of the art and science of yoga to become a teacher if Frank White hadn’t insisted I meet Ganga White and Tracey Rich, who then introduced me to myself as a teacher. I wouldn’t have written a play if David Kranes, Dave Chambers and Ed Gryska hadn’t read what I wrote about being raised in a trailer in Alaska and told me I should keep writing.
I wrote this on December 15th, 2012, the day after the murders of 20 students and 6 educators at the Sandy Hook Elementary School. Nothing has changed, no progress has been made.

People who hate can't separate themselves from it. It's an intrinsic part of them, so much so that it defines them. They wouldn't be complete, or who they are, without it. That's why when someone says to them, "I reject hate and you because you do it" they claim you're the one who is intolerant and that you're acting out of your hatred of them. Because they can't see being without it or rejecting it. And hate is cunning. It's just as hard to for us who do not hate to separate the haters from their hatred.
