was a man in San Francisco who wanted to commit suicide, and said if
one person smiles are me, I will not jump off the bridge. That is the
power of a simple smile.
My blog started in 2006, I had a radio
show on 1490 am in Kingston, New York to promote The Smile Revolution
from 2006-2008 with luminaries such as Pete Seeger, Richie Havens, David
Amram, Arlo Guthrie, Buffy St. Marie, Neale Donald
Walsch, Tom Pacheco, & Roland Mousaa, who brought many of them on
board. I want to especially thank Roland who has helped so much in this
movement. Music IS joy, and I wanted to create music and promote
uplifting lyrics, so Roland and I started writing and singing smile
songs, and produced two Smile Concerts, one with Pete Seeger, and
friends, and one if Greenwich Village at Le Poisson Rouge with the
legendary late Sid Bernstein, Richard Barone, Roland, Deni Bonet, Daniel
Goodman, Constance Hauman, and many more amazing musicians.
