Hi new Friend!
Sorry it took so long for me to respond but better late than never I hope.
Feel free to check out my project http://SoundsLikePeace.org
and if you'd like to collaborate or be involved in it
just drop me a line.
Thanks and Peace,
Well, Alan, you have the musicians. I have the place. 30 acres of seating. Great view. Take a look at my site and see what I have to say and what I have to offer. How about a week of music and art in the name of peace and freedom.
My daughters who were on stage at Summer of Love and Westfest to promote peace with their father Benjamin Hernandez have been nominated and accepted to be Teen Peace Ambassadors to Australia! Please share their journey and efforts to raise funds and Peace awareness for their journey. www.sunnyvaletosydney.tumblr.com
The secret of beginning a life of deep awareness and sensitivity lies in our willingness to pay attention. Our growth as conscious, awake human beings is marked not so much by grand gestures and visible renunciations as by extending loving attention to the minutest particulars of our lives. Every relationship, every thought, every gesture is blessed with meaning through the wholehearted attention we bring to it. In the complexities of our minds and lives we easily forget the power of attention, yet without attention we live only on the surface of existence. It is just simple attention that allows us truly to listen to the song of a bird, to see deeply the glory of an autumn leaf, to touch the heart of another and be touched. We need to be fully present in order to love a single thing wholeheartedly. We need to be fully awake in this moment if we are to receive and respond to the learning inherent in it.

It's more than a logo Alan! Troubadors & storytellers have always been the prime agents for change & at the same time conservators of knowledge. Musicians & Artists & Storytellers ARE the innitiators of paridigm shifts. "Move or be Moved" -Ezra Pound- ...So keep on keeping on.... brother!
