Living the revolution

If we're going to make a revolution, it's got to be more joyful, more peaceful, and more comical than most that have preceded it. We need a sense of humor, a sense of compassion, and a sense of community. If we can't drink beer and play tunes while at the same time changing the world, it's not worth it.

And, as I always tell the bar staff, in my parallel universe, poets and musicians drink for free, and it's the politicians who work without pay.

We'll all be together, where we'd rather be
Standin' on the corner, where the poets drink for free
With Malory and Sappho
And you my friend and me

Take care of each other.
