Easter Blossoms & Gandhi.

I found a statue of Gandhi in Union Square, coming out of a grove of trees which were rich with pink, aromatic flowers, as if sprung to life by his steps and his words and deeds. Non-violent resistance to oppression. Justice. Dignity. It was the same set of principles I was taught growing up as a Christian. The same principles I heard at the University of Judaism when I sang and spoke with the students there.

"My optimism rests on my believe in the infinite possibilities of the individual to develop non-violence...a gentle way to shake the world." Gandhi.

Infinite possibilities. Like this?

For my birthday, also St. Francis of Assisi Day,

here is "Rescue" the song I sang to Erika Amato 's Buddy the dog. Imagine if we loved humans as much as we love our animals...
