Independence Day: A Note from Michael
Somebody said one flag (Confederate) going down and one flag (Rainbow) going up. So grateful to live in the good ole USA. In the good ole twenty-first century. While often seduced by the "things are going to hell in a handbasket" thing (where'd THAT come from, anyway?) I gotta say people, esp. US citizens, will surprise you and fill you with hope for the eventual perfectness of humankind. Also I love hearing the Ineffectual Cavilling Orchestra play, and love feeling that the cynics have lost bigtime. Bless them Founding Fathers, man, things would be a lot worse in this world without them. I usually don't see the point of fireworks but this year it's plenty different. AND I'm working some great gigs lately.
I was in Rhode Island and Rockport, MA, and man, that clam chowder is revolutionary. Not ordinarily a joiner, I would join a Clam Chowder Party.
... OK bye.
