Playing For Change

~~Published on Apr 6, 2018~~

In music as in life, the things that make us different make us stronger. All the various instruments, tones, perspectives, and cultures in this recording combine to create a new version of this classic Songs Around The World.

The idea was born a few years ago during breakfast at the Byron Bay Bluesfest in Australia. Our friend and drummer, Peter Bunetta, introduced me to Tom Johnston of The Doobie Brothers and we talked about taking “Listen to the Music” around the world. We started the track with an acoustic guitar demo played to a click track and then added bass from Colombia, tablas and veena from India, and then headed to the Redwood Forest in Northern California to record and film Tom Johnston live outside. We then recorded and filmed Patrick Simmons and John McFee playing along to the track in a park in San Diego. The journey then continued throughout North and South America, Europe, The Middle East, Asia, and Africa. This final version features 30 musicians from 12 countries united through their love of music.

INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PEACE

What a beautiful concept. What a beautiful idea. What a beautiful celebration.

I can only extrapolate my feelings and believe that ALL human beings want and deserve peace.

Why is this so elusive?

Of course, it’s a rhetorical question.

There are many answers, many of us feel that way.

Each an every one has an answer for why isn’t there peace in the world.

It’s elusive and seems to be so far away.

We can only hope and image!

Thoughts for today, #301 .… “Please …. Stop Wars”!!


Weapons

~~December 23, 2015~~ 

PLEASE, STOP WARS

Oh my God, please stop war in this world
and bless us to live in this world peacefully
No one wants war in any part of this world
nor no one wants to live with strife with anyone
The pain and suffering of our innocent people can not be spoken
nor can not be count their sorrowful death
The stubborn world leaders live with safe and secure
but the innocent people are dying for nothing
The war brings not only destruction and diseases
but also death of innocent human beings
Our hearts are broken when we see so many families mourn
and cry for loved ones while crocodile tears shed by some leaders
Life can not be brought back but why did they die for?
The white dove’s wing has been cut into two pieces
and the name of peace has been written with human blood
The destruction of weapons are become human’s safety tools
and cultivated lands are become play ground of war
Oh my God, please help our world and bring PEACE.

HYMNE A L’AMOUR

(Edith Piaf Classic)

Celine Dion sings L’Hymne a L’Amour in tribute to Paris attack victims at American Music Awards 2015

GoldSwirl

The American Music Awards took a sombre turn on Sunday when Celine Dion sang in tribute to the victims of Paris’s terror attacks.

The Canadian singer covered Edith Piaf’s L’Hymne a L’Amour after actor-musician Jared Leto delivered an emotional speech about the deadly events.

JL

Leto spoke about an impromptu show his band Thirty Seconds To Mars had performed at Le Bataclan in Paris, the scene where 89 people lost their lives in the attacks 10 days ago.

He said: “Seven months later that same venue was under siege, one of a series of attacks that changed the world forever.
“Tonight we honor the victims of the unimaginable violence that took place in Paris and around the world.

“France matters, Syria matters, Russia matters, Mali matters, the Middle East matters, the entire world matters and peace is possible.”

Introducing Dion’s performance, Leto added:

“Many of us here are the sons and daughters of immigrants and Steve Jobs, the son of a Syrian immigrant, and President Barack Obama.

“The American Music Awards wanted to show its support for the people of France and the entire world.”

Thoughts for today, #290 .… “We All Are Connected”!!


Connected

~~November 20, 2015~~ 

WE ALL ARE CONNECTED

I don’t know you, you don’t know me
We don’t know each other
Yet we do, somehow,
Some way, We are all connected.

We are connected to this life by many threads
Which we only notice when they are broken
Whether family, friends, work or welfare, all
Pull us apart in different dimensions in time.

You are connected to me by small pleasures
Which we only notice when we stop giving
Whether interest, intent, wish or wisdom, all
Pull us apart in different dimensions in space.

We are connected to each other for ever now
Which we only notice when we are apart again
Whether travel, trust, freedom or failure, all
Pull us apart in different dimensions in love.

HUSBAND’S TOUCHING TRIBUTE

Antoine Leiris wrote although the terrorists had taken ‘an exceptional life’ they would ‘not have my hatred’

Paris terror attack

Husband pays touching tribute to ‘love of his life’ in defiant message to attackers

The husband of a woman killed in the Paris attacks has written a touching message to the “love of my life” and promised to raise their 17-month-old son “happy and free ”.

Antoine Leiris, whose wife Helene Muyal-Leiris was among the 89 killed in the Bataclan concert hall attack on Friday evening, posted an emotional message on Facebook.

Mr Leiris, who first met his 35-year-old wife 12 years ago, told the attackers he would “not grant you the gift of my hatred.”

In a post – shared more than 60,000 times by Tuesday morning – Mr. Leiris said in French he would raise their son Melvil “happy and free” and that responding to “hatred with anger is falling victim to the same ignorance that has made you what you are.”
