He is thrilled that it welcomes the full global range of musical streams that nourish him in body and soul. He has raised goats and a pig, pruned apple trees, made music, done day labor, taught, organized, counseled, and written one amazing song. He is retired now, but not sure from what. He tries to keep his wife happy, learn and teach some Torah, build solidarity through uncomfortable encounters across potentially divisive boundaries, and keep his heartstrings tuned to G!d.|
