  1. Beautiful. Thanks for posting.

    I often think about how we’ve cut down virtually every tree and polluted every body of water and left our cities turn to squalor.

    But our musical accomplishments we did right.

  2. Thanks Juan-Went on a bit of a tear myself yesterday posting great Hal David songs. There’s so many of them! And although he did a lot of make up and break up, he went for the human heart of it all, the person struggling for balance, which led him to comment on social themes more than once. Just fantastic.

  3. Beautiful indeed. What the world needs now and will always need. Thanks for remembering Hal… and all that he gave us. Reaching for the stars…real stars
