“So grant us peace, Jesus, grant us peace
Move our hearts to hear a single beat
between alibis and enemies tonight…”
– “Gratitude”, Nichole Nordeman

Hello Friends,

Those are the lyrics from a stanza in one of my favorite songs. In this time of political contentiousness, I pray for us all to move past our “alibis” and for “enemies” to overcome their differences and agree to uphold standards of decency, kindness, thoughtfulness and maturity in the political arena. Too many of our political leaders display behavior for which children would be chided. Let’s demand a higher standard! I urge everyone to vote. Whether you’re a Tea Party activist, an advocate for legalization of marijuana, a Libertarian, a Green Party Member, Republican, Democrat, an independent or some other label, please vote! Respect your right to vote. Tomorrow is the mid-term election. Please please please please VOTE!

And now, back to the music…

In October, I had the chance to do a show with Stevie Wonder in New York City! I was only in town for a couple of days, but it was good to be back in “my” city, to spend some time with friends, to watch my friend Eisa Davis perform (check her out!), and have a couple of trips on the subway. You gotta love the NYC subway system. Whenever I ride the subway in NYC, I think to myself “BART! For real?? We can’t do better?” Sigh…

I have a couple of fun shows coming up in the Bay Area. Check out the calendar, and I hope to see you at a show!
