    Thank you for the backstage view. We won’t be in the audience physically – Stockholm is just a bit too far from Houston – but are looking forward to seeing (and hearing) you at Carnegie Hall in March – NYC is a little closer. I hope you find some financial backing for filming the opera and we’ll definitlye buy a DVD if it shows up. It would be important in the unbelievable slow fight against capital punishment. Keep up the fight but remember to Watch Your Step.

    Joe’s got a fluffier pillow than Sr Helen. Now they are asking that Mr Assange of Wikileaks get the deathpenalty for”treason”.And one can only imagine what’s in store for Loughner. We do live in interesting times.

We need you to remind us what empathy is by taking us deep into the hearts of those who are, God forbid, different than us – so that we can recapture the hope of not only living in peace with each other, but THRIVING together in a vibrant way where each of us grows in wonder and joy.
