Picks for May 2006
Music: my daughter Chelsea is blowing my mind. She is a very specific kind of songwriter: Southern, gothic, female, mystical and grounded in deep Folk. She is a far better songwriter than I was at her age, and I think she has enormous potential. I did ask her permission to link to her MySpace page here: http://www.myspace.com/chelsea
Book: "Peace Like a River". SO poetic and flows like a river. I love the Dad, who somehow has supernatural powers, which he keeps very private. I love a guy who doesn’t brag about his supernatural powers. Also, the attention to detail and to the intricacies of relationships is just breathtaking. Highly recommended, and thanks, Jay Hass, for sending this my way.
Film: Is there any question? "An Inconvenient Truth". Oh, please go see it. Send your high schools. Take your mom and your grandchild. Wake up, take action, be part of the solution. I have infinite admiration for the Honorable Al Gore, who has spent his entire adult life in public service, and who now sounds the alarm for us to come to our senses and heal our planet.
