1/4/05: What did the deep sea say? The old songs can't tell us. But they can tell us, at least, that they can't tell us, which is something, maybe all, that music can do. In Germany today the news is talking about how well the U.S. has been doing aiding survivors, and that many have begun to rethink their resentment of American attitudes. It's so sad that we need such motions of the earth to wake us up to our potential, but it looks like we're here after all, and ready to answer such a call from our brothers and sisters. Let's keep on going, and stick together.
