"Your words and music were flowing into the air of Mumbai"
Just thought you'd like to know....I'm visiting India. A few days ago our group was on a bus tour of Mumbai with some Indian friends. We sang "Circle of the Sun" for them...what fun! Your words and music were flowing into the air of Mumbai from the top of the open upper deck of the bus.

"I'm inspired by the way social justice flows through your music"
Thank you so much for the album and for sharing your music and expertise and energy! I deeply appreciate your attention to social justice issues, and am inspired by the way it flows through your music.
I am a mother of an 8-year-old girl who was recently inspired by your song "What Can One Little Person Do?" She wanted to use part of one of the verses at a Women's Peace March in Lansing, MI on Saturday. She liked the peaceful words and the use of the female pronouns. Thank you for your work!
