Finally home for a couple of days! As much as I love NY it's always good to be back in Soulsville, sitting in front of OUR fireplace. We're blessed. May a blessing of encouragement flow thru Haiti today.

An Offering for Haiti

The people of Haiti are blessed with gifts that we in the rest of the world desperately need. They are not a "poor destitute" people. They are a culturally RICH people whose destinies were forever changed by the greed and short-sightedness of an unfortunate colonialist period in world history, and now need our help to be able to rebuild, preserve and present their much-needed gifts to the world. May I offer, alongside the generous financial gifts and gifts of prayers and concern from so many of you, the following poem from the pen of my favorite poet/songwriter, David of Jerusalem. I offer it in their now-native tongue, Français:

Seigneur VousEtesTout

L'Éternel est mon berger: je ne manquerai de rien.

    2Il me fait reposer dans de verts pâturages, Il me dirige près des eaux paisibles.

    3Il restaure mon âme, Il me conduit dans les sentiers de la justice, A cause de son nom.

    4Quand je marche dans la vallée de l'ombre de la mort, Je ne crains aucun mal, car tu es avec moi: Ta houlette et ton bâton me rassurent.

    5Tu dresses devant moi une table, En face de mes adversaires; Tu oins d'huile ma tête, Et ma coupe déborde.

    6Oui, le bonheur et la grâce m'accompagneront Tous les jours de ma vie, Et j'habiterai dans la maison de l'Éternel Jusqu'à la fin de mes jours.

Tokyo Chronicles cont. Kick Back Café

Looking out at this intimate but incredibly responsive audience at Kick Back Café (this past November) is still one of my most treasured memories. The Guys and I were transformed, our music was transformed!IMG_1442
