One show down- 8 million to go & Thoughts on Bin Laden

One show down. 8 million to go. That's what they say in show business. At least that's what I say in show business. I had a really fun show last night in Jacksonville Florida. Not a huge turnout but "I'm building." :) I was talking to my friends Tina and Joe and Tina said "We love coming to your shows. We hate places that are really crowded!" She didn't mean it to be funny but it's such a great quote that I had to put it out there. They're a really cool couple that always show up and support my musica. They even said I could stay at their house and they gave me their pin number to their Mastercard and the keys to their boat. Right now I'm draining their bank account and fishing and blogging at the same time. This rules! I love them. I'll never for where I was when I heard the news about Bin Laden. I was on stage in between songs when Tim Hall who owns Jackrabbits told me from his seat near the front. It was really strange to see people celebrating all over the place. It's weird to think of a death as good news and to have a blood lust for revenge, but I understand. It just seems really strange. I'm used to seeing people in the Middle East cheering the death of different people and it always seem so barbaric. I watched the television with wonder and disbelief. I must say that it's really nice to see some good news for once but I worry for our future.Please don't misconstrue this as me being a killjoy I just really hope that one day the world will see eye to eye instead of eye for eye. There's just so much good we can do on this crazy mixed up planet.  A world so full of beauty that it hurts me sometimes just to think about it. So many chances to educate people. So many different races and types of people with different points of view all trying to be heard. So much potential for love. So many different choices to make and decisions that lead to ripples that keep on moving across the great divide. I want to join the party of love and peace and tranquility. Everyone with an open mind and heart is welcome. It's a good party and it never ends.
