or accuse a bird or a squirrel of subversion,
or challenge the ideology of a violet.

Be gentle enough to follow the natural paths of the earth,
and strong enough to rise up and reshape the world.

Look deep into nature,
and then you will understand everything better.

Dancin' John

In 2000 Dancin’ John attended 19 music festivals and music shows. After speaking with friends, he discovered that he had attended more events than anyone he knew. In 2001 he decided to make a deliberate effort to attend as many music events as possible to see what his record high could be. He attended 120 events---but many festivals and events were cancelled after the September 11 attacks. John decided to try again in 2002 to see how many events he could attend in a full year. His amazing record for 2002 was 162 music festivals and shows. Realizing this was a record not likely to be broken by himself or anyone else, John has since 2002 attended 40-50 festivals or shows each year. Even at 40-50 per year, we doubt anyone can challenge his record! Dancin’ John, we all THANK YOU for your unwavering loyalty to musicians and to music events.

Forget injuries, never forget kindnesses.
Confucius




You will not do incredible things without an incredible dream.
John Eliot




Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.
Robert Louis Stevenson




Don't look where you fall, but where you slipped.
African Proverb




Be content with what you have;
rejoice in the way things are.
When you realize there is nothing lacking,
the whole world belongs to you.
Lao Tzu




Contentment is the only real wealth.
Alfred Nobel




Be happy, and a reason will come along.
Robert Brault




A few days ago
I walked along the edge of the lake
and was treated to the crunch and rustle of leaves with each step I made.
The acoustics of this season are different and all sounds,
no matter how hushed, are as crisp as autumn air.
Eric Sloane




There is nothing
in which the birds differ more from man
than the way in which they can build and yet
leave a landscape as it was before.
Robert Lynd




Always be like water.
Float in the times of pain
or dance like waves along the wind
which touches its surface.
Santosh Kalwar
