Can you believe another month has gone by? The perception of time picks up as one grows older. Might have said this before, but I think it’s worth repeating. Bernard Berenson in his eighties said, “I don’t know why I put my clothes on in the morning because before I know it, it’s time to go to sleep.” I’m not quite there yet, but it’s moving mighty fast. Another great Berenson quote: “Miracles happen to those who believe in them.”

I find myself being extremely positive and life affirming personally, and yet, when I look at what’s happening in the world, I am dismayed that the violence and wars continue, and as a species, we are not only no closer to living in peace, we are further from it than ever before. People are holding onto their belief systems for dear life, and when people are dying in the name of religion or ideology, something is terribly wrong. I continue my mission of creating a more loving and peaceful world starting with myself and then going forth into the world with my Consciousness and music to change the world one listener at a time. I have never been clearer or more determined. Now more than ever, we need to find our own inner peace and take that peace and manifest it in the world. I believe that the time has come for all people of intelligence and awareness to help people less aware and less fortunate to bring about real CHANGE. Obviously, change has not come, and is not going to come, from politicians and/or government. Change comes from within.
I have been against nuclear power since my days touring with John Hall, and performing at the No Nukes Concerts at Madison Square Garden. We have got to put a stop to the insanity. We have a major problem in the US already. http://edition.cnn.com/2011/US/03/30/spent.nuclear.fuel And part of our future “clean energy” program is to build 25 new nuclear reactors. Of course, since the catastrophe in Japan, this is being downplayed. What is happening in Japan is not even close to being over. See Chernobyl article http://www.voanews.com/english/news/europe/Chernobyl-A-Nuclear-Accident-With-No-End-118943489.html
(FYI The most important isotope of plutonium is plutonium-239, with a half-life of 24,100 years. Plutonium-239 is the isotope most useful for nuclear weapons. Plutonium-239 and 241 are fissile, meaning the nuclei of their atoms can break apart by being bombarded by slow moving thermal neutrons, releasing energy, gamma radiation and more neutrons. These can therefore sustain a nuclear chain reaction, leading to applications in nuclear weapons and nuclear reactors.) If anyone out there still thinks that nuclear power is the way to go, I would really like to try to understand your thinking.
Regarding our national debt and the states running out of money (because they can’t print money like the Fed and actually have to balance their budgets). I wonder what we could do with the 1 TRILLION dollars that is going to be spent on our next generation fighter jet. http://www.theatlantic.com/national/archive/2011/03/the-f-35-a-weapon-that-costs-more-than-australia/72454 More money than the GNP of Australia!
