Love CAN Change the World, and we all can play a part


When we sing "love can change the world – I can play a
part…", its personal. Its a reminder that it really does start with us.

Holdinghands For
almost a year, we have been talking, planning and beginning to implement our
own plan to simplify our lives. To live a more sustainable lifestyle. To focus
on the difference we can make, rather than just surviving.   We've
sold our now 'too big for us' house and we're taking a leap of faith that we'll
find a smaller, comfortable home to rent before moving day in mid-March. We're
focusing more on our work in music because that's
where our hearts are. We're taking better care of ourselves, making sure we
leave time to rest and relax, and making sure we let each other know – every
day – how grateful we are for each other.

Sound like a love fest? Well then so
be it… because this is where it starts. Next step, making time to help
others. This 2008 blog post from the Zen Habits Blog details 25 Ways to Help a Fellow Human Being.
Don't worry, this topic can't possibly go stale. Author Leo Babuata challenges
readers to: 

…strike back against the selfishness and greed of our modern
world, and help out a fellow human being today. Not next month, but today.

There
are 25 wonderful – and simple – ideas for how to do this. Ending with the
biggest and most wonderful idea of them all:

#25. Love. Simply finding ways to
express your love to others, whether it be your partner, child, other family
member, friend, co-worker, or a complete stranger … just express your love. A
hug, a kind word, spending time, showing little kindnesses, being friendly … it
all matters more than you know.

How will you begin to change the world today?



Pasadena, Altadena … little bit of time between …. a

Here we are at the end of our second day of the Love Can Change the World tour. We've met some great people in the Pasadena/Altadena area, and had a fantastic time tonight at the Coffee Gallery Backstage.

IGSBL_CoffeeGalleryt was our first time at the Coffee Gallery – a listening room that we've been hearing about for years. We opened for Stephanie Bettman and Luke Halpin, an energetic contemporary acoustic duo from here in the LA area. It was definitely a LOVE celebration!

On Friday we head to Phoenix, and the Fiddler's Dream Coffeehouse… sharing the love one audience at a time!
