“Following the wave of suicides of young people who have been bullied and the links between hate speech and the tragic Jan. 8 shooting in Tucson, an Owasso church dedicated to social justice and peace is teaming with an internationally-known folk music group to work on solutions.

Emma’s Revolution members Pat Humphries and Sandy O bring a sense of humor and hope to their music. They are inspired by Pete Seeger and others as they continue the legacy of music for social change. The award-winning folksingers from the Washington, DC area have toured internationally. The concert is a benefit for Open Table UCC in Owasso, a new open and affirming community of faith.

Pat Humphries and Sandy O use the power of music to promote peace and justice, the environment, human rights, and women’s and LGBTQ issues. They will lead a discussion and workshop on how to advocate for change without resorting to violence. Tulsa area experts from the following organizations will join them to describe their efforts to work for change in such areas as bullying prevention, local food insecurity and community development in North Tulsa:

A Third Place Community Foundation
Children’s Consortium of Tulsa
Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma
Community of Hope United Church of Christ
Fellowship Congregational Church
Oklahomans for Equality
Open Table United Church of Christ
Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays-Tulsa
United Campus Ministries at the University of Tulsa.”

about emma’s revolution

Smart, funny and informative. Like Rachel Maddow and Jon Stewart with guitars.

With hauntingly beautiful harmonies and powerful acoustic instrumentals that deliver the energy and strength of their convictions, emma’s revolution creates new standards in the art of social justice. Their songs have been sung for the Dalai Lama, praised by Pete Seeger and recorded by Holly Near.

emma’s revolution is the duo of activist musicians, Pat Humphries & Sandy O. Based in the Washington DC area, the duo won Grand Prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest for
“If I Give Your Name”, “Peace, Salaam, Shalom”
is sung around the world and has been called the “anthem of the anti-war movement.” emma’s revolution’s music has been featured on NPR’s “All Things Considered” and Pacifica’s “Democracy Now!”

In the spirit of Emma Goldman’s famous attribution, “If I can’t dance, I don’t want to be part of your revolution,” emma’s revolution brings their uprising of truth, hope and a dash of healthy irreverence to concerts and peace & justice, labor, human rights, environmental, LGBT and women’s rights events around the world. Touring over 200 days a year, emma’s revolution has performed at hundreds of events from Canada, Chile, Korea, Scotland, England, Israel/Palestine, Nicaragua, Cuba and throughout the US spreading their message of peace and justice. emma’s revolution consistently delivers performances that are an uprising of hope and harmony so powerful audiences leap to their feet.

Work

I plan to work. That is a given. Always.  I hope to be starting a new job. There will be much to learn. There will be much required. That is as it should be.

Music for Children

I want to find the time again to sing for children. I’ll probably sing for the class of a first grade teacher I know. I don’t know if I’ll do more than that any time soon.

YouTube

I’d love to make some little videos of some of my songs and put them up on youtube. I imagine my ‘little movies’ more as slide shows of related images than actual movies. I’ll probably start with Teddy Bear.

Songwriting

It’s time to write again. My last round of new songs came with my return to NC over two years ago!

Stained Glass

I had ideas for Christmas gifts (not made). I’ve been drawing design ideas for a year (not made). I’ve purchased and collected glass (still in boxes and leaning against walls). It’s time to do some stained glass again. Maybe that will happen when the weather warms and I can sit outside again.

Gardening

I don’t have a seriously green thumb. You’d know that’s true if you saw my yard. (You’d think I had a green thumb if you looked at these photos from my yard … all without any growing help from me!) I am pretty good at growing bits of greenery in water (break off a stem and stick it in water and wait for it to grow). And, I have grown some good tomatoes a few times in my life.

Photography

I think I could take pictures of boxes or shoes or pots and pans and still enjoy it. But, I really enjoy taking photos of people. I’d love to be the event photographer (for the memorable candid shots) for parties and celebrations. I do it once in awhile, but I’d love to do more of that. I love to take pictures.

Only a Few Ideas

Those are a few of the things I’d like to do in 2010. At the head of the list is where I’ll spend the major part of my time (work). The rest are things I’d love to find more time for when I’m not working. I could go on and on, but you get the idea.

What Are Your Dreams and Plans?

What will you do? What would you like to do? What do you imagine and hope you’ll try?

Discovered By Accident

I accidentally discovered the music of Tony Hakim when I was searching YouTube for someone else. It was a pleasing discovery.

Tony Hakim Sings James Taylor

I looked around a little and found a web page for Mr. Hakim. It looks like he is a professional musician. He also sings for the camera at home.

Look. Listen. Subscribe.

Patrick Swayze

I want to say something about Patrick Swayze. He seemed like such a nice guy, genuine, with a good heart. That impression may have begun with his character in Dirty Dancing and continued with his character in Ghost. But, his decades-long love with his wife added the real-life component to his image.

Mary Travers of Peter, Paul and Mary

Mary Travers was part of a threesome that provided part of the acoustic soundtrack for the baby boom generation. Their performing years ended long ago, but the grandchildren of baby boomers still sing their songs in their elementary school classrooms.

Two Stars That Shot Across The Sky This Week

Both Patrick Swayze and Mary Travers left this world this week. Patrick Swayze died after a battle with pancreatic cancer. Mary Travers died after a battle with leukemia. Their physical lives here have ended,  but their artistic contributions will live on and continue to influence people for good in the years to come.

Susan Boyle, Rising Star

I wanted to write about Susan Boyle when she first blasted to fame in her overnight stardom that began with her performance on Britian’s Got Talent. I waited, because it seemed like everyone was writing about her. I’m glad she survived those first few weeks and things are going well for her.  It looks like she has adjusted well to her complete change in lifestyle, and she is thriving again. She performed Wild Horses on America’s Got Talent final on 16th September, 2009.

The conceptualizing of it must have been a lot of fun. The actual making of it was probably lengthy and tiresome. But, it makes a neat effect.

Her Morning Elegance

The woman is in bed, presumably sleeping, and she travels through her entire day, on her mattress. You have to see it.
