Devonte Hynes and Philip Glass

Funny how things come into view when we are open to seeing them. 
I happened across this NPR Music snippet after I clicked on a facebook notification about a Lucinda Williams Tiny Desk Concert. 
I can relate to most of it, so I figure it is worth a share. 

Now back to watch the Lucinda Williams Tiny Desk Concert. Someday I'll tell you the backstory about that time I entered the Tiny Desk Concert. It's more interesting than the actual performance, imho.

Something I feel like sharing. Again, Willie gets it long before most of the rest of the world. 

Have a great day. 
Hope to see you at Bear Music Fest this weekend.

CALL TO ACTION : Net Neutrality Comments Needed Now

Dear Readers:
In case you missed it, July 12th was a Day of Action for Net Neutrality. You can learn more by searching "day of action net neutrality" or "net neutrality" or "net neutrality bill" or something to that effect. Wired and Mashable have some good articles/online posts about it.
I cannot stress enough how important it is that each of us takes a moment to make a comment in favor of preserving net neutrality.
To do so, please visit this link, click on + Express and fill out the form, including the comment section. Please use your real name and contact information.
I sent in my comment. Here is my confirmation:

Proceeding(s): 17-108 : Restoring Internet Freedom
Filer(s): Mari Tamburo
Brief Comments: Net neutrality is crucial to the health and wealth of our society because people from all walks of life have gifts to share with the world and we have much to teach and learn from each other. A free and open internet makes this possible. Please preserve net neutrality
Admittedly, it's not the most eloquent example of my writing, but it makes a clear statement that I want to protect net neutrality.
All efforts do not have to be perfect, but we do need to make them.
Thanks in advance for not being "silent in the shadows."
Best Regards,
