When we see people doing wrong, we need to speak up.
Too often, wrongdoing is disguised as being "for your own good."
Why, oh why, do we make things so difficult?
I find myself puzzled by this law that Governor Newsom just signed into law: SB 145.
If the intent of the law is to address cases where two people are close in age, then why not make that clear, and address the 10 year age gap?
How is a 14 year old of any gender or sexual orientation supposed to give consent to someone that is 10 years their senior? And we, as a society, absolve them of accountability?
We need to fix this "oversight."
Suffice it to say, civic engagement is necessary for laws that reflect the will of the people.
Contact your elected representatives, and let them know how you feel about this. I certainly will.
Enough of this absurdity.

Combination of the two, plus me and you.
Come on, folks, we can do this!
I hope you are feeling what I am feeling:
Energetic, not apathetic.
Grateful for Kamala Harris' supportive parents and family. This is a moment in time to be celebrated, but now is when we get to work.
Thank you to everyone who donated to my campaign. I am planning to check the rules before I do anything with the funds. Current plan is to donate to the Biden/Harris effort and/or down ticket Democrats.

Hope this note finds you well. Thank you to everyone choosing to reduce the viral load in the air by covering your nose and mouth.
Take a break from the stress and let's work together to bring more kindness and beauty into this world, through music. Now, more than ever, we need music.
Thanks for listening.

Keep shining your light, wherever you may be.
Eventually, the truth we'll show for all to see.

Sometimes it comes after a hard day's work, sometimes it comes after a life well lived. A life, well lived is usually not thought about while doing the living, it is considered after the living is done.
When a man such as John Lewis takes his final rest, perhaps that means it is tine for the rest of us to get to work.
We all have to start somewhere.
Let's start where we are, and go from here.

Anyway, we started bantering back and forth, and pretty soon, I found myself sharing beyond the subject, and sharing how I feel about politics and music, so I figured I would give it a little edit and share here:
"...the myth about this whole "left wing vs. right wing" BS is just that, BS, meant to divide us and keep a certain class in power. DT got elected because he talked about the so called "elites" and played on that fear and division. How is he not an elite? He has gold toilets. That is what I don't get about how he became the "savior" of the everyman. My impression is many of the people who voted for DT are not big Trump fans, just as many of the folks who voted for Obama were not fans of the man (though he certainly possesses many admirable qualities) - many were voting for change, and realized the symbolism of having our first black President.
Many of us are sick of getting the shaft by the "machine" -- and the media controls the narrative, which explains the negative feelings many of us have about the media. However, there is a difference between media driven by profit -- and journalism, which is driven by a desire to find the truth. It is very similar to a musical or artistic endeavor driven by profit or one that is driven by the need to express oneself. Again, this is how I see it. Your perceptions may vary.
When all is said and done, it boils down to what we value. Who we elect to the highest office in this land is a mirror to our "collective soul."
