Where Have All the Flowers Gone?

Oh, how I wish that song were not still so absolutely relevant.  When will we ever learn?  What have we ever learned?  I'm learning to keep my mouth shut if I want any peace, which somehow seems wrong, being as this is a country where free speech is almost as important as the right to bear arms or for boys to be boys.  Yes. I am angry!  The polarization in this country is breaking my heart. Are these the growing pains of democracy or its death throes?  Sad to say, I am really glad I don't have any children to leave this mess to.

Far more erudite and intelligent friends have been writing about our condition today.  So I'll stop now. I figured it was safe to vent a little here since no one reads these blogs anyway.  Therefore the danger of starting a flaming war is minimal.  Test, test, is anyone out there?

Come to our gigs.  It will be fun.  We will create a concentrated area of peace, love, and understanding.

Sunday October 21, 11 - 1 pm, San Gregorio, no cover, all ages.  Trio with Jerry Kuhel.

Friday October 26, 8 - 10 pm, Armando's in Martinez, $15, doors at 7:30 pm. Quintet with Diana Greenberg,  Dave Golia, Ken Owen.

Peace,

Kathleen Flying Salvia

    I read whatever you post, Dear Heart. I'd like to suggest that, in addition to asking people to register to vote, you also ask them to VOTE! In the presidential election of 2016, 47% of registered Democrats did NOT vote! We also need to gather forces to disband the Electoral College, imho, since it was those voters who put Trump and his cronies in office and that institution has not been relevant or justified in years. Anyway, like you, I also value Peace above all else and your Music and your Creativity always add to mine! Hope, as always, to see (and hear) you soon! LOVE!

    Erudition may be overrated. Peace is not, nor is respect. Now carry on.

    I'm afraid the answer is never...but we keep trying to learn, because we must.
