when drinking a cup of coffee, imagine the 7 billion plus people on this planet all drinking a cup of coffee … that’s a lot of coffee. what if they all used a styrofoam cup? same for flushing the toilet, eating a hamburger, and so on … staggering!
just occurs to me in answering some good friend’s letter:
competition can be replaced with community.
instead of being fearful of all the others trying to “make it” we can reach out with love and help each other “make it” and get much, much farther doing it that way.
it’s not even complicated :)

soon. soon. it’s on the way. the new on line concept of a solo bass set of improvisations. soon. promise. I wanted it done this year, it’s important for this year. life always steps up with its own agenda, but this will end up on top. promise. soon.
meanwhile take care of each other and of our collective mother ship, the earth. we can do it, you know, we are fully capable and intelligent enough to realize that this is the only planet we have, it’s like our own apartment, and we should treat it just like we treat our own living space. that’s what it is …
love . peace .. jazz … jonas
