Get a handle on the Constitution America….
Seriously – there’s other stuff to do down there in the trains than mess w/ me to save your job!!!
So, last night I had a dream of¬† two dancers/mystics in long, colourful robes, movine & dancing across a green lawn, each one holding a flower. The first held an enormous, larger-than-life White Lily and the second an equally large, oversized Sunflower. After that dream, somehow now I knew Spring had finally arrived in NYC! We all thought it might actually skip us this year the way the winter dragged on. But the trees are in bloom, the flowers are comin’ up & birds tweeting madly. I even saw a goose lay her egg (all be it not golden) as I was running along The Hudson River. This truly is my favourite time of year & I hope all of you are enjoying it to the max.
I’m blessed this year to usher in the season with a full schedule of gigs & appearances that allow me to actually see the sun as I sing, speak & sign books! The tour dates range from Nassau Bahamas to Middletown Ct with fun appearances in between. Check out all the happenings below & I hope to see you all either above ground or under!

A special note of thanks to the brilliant handiwork of bassist & master luthier Rick Mullen who has repaired my much neglected guitar. Thanks to his talent & dedicated work on my ax I’m up and ready to go this Spring! If you’ve got a stringed instrument in need of repair – he’s your guy! www.rickmullen.net
Finally – I’m sending all of you the best wishes for a happy, safe & super creative Spring!
A lot of the buskers have noticed an increased police presence¬† underground, along w/ cops holding machine guns above on the street.¬† And, yes, I was ‘nabbed’ by the cops last week @ 59th St/ Columbus Circle.¬† So, we’ve surmised the latest ‘crackdown is due to us¬† being at¬† ‘war’ in Africa and that, of course, logically means no music underground in NYC, NY – Oh yeah, that makes perfect sense…
Which leads me to two favourite quotes of the week for the week – one from your s truly and the other from Rev Michael Beckwith.
“Let’s try the power of love vs the love of power…just for a minute and see what happens” ~ Moi
