“Those Five” ruled in 1965 in Clearwater, Madiera Beach and St. Pete.

This was a happening band when I was in high school in Clearwater, Florida. This was a publicity picture of us when we performed with Dick Clark “Where the Action Is” tour in St. Pete at the Bay Front Center. John Delise lead singer, Walter Anderson Lead Guitar, Jan Pulver Bass, Doug Davenport Farfisa organ, Buddy Helm Drums. We had a couple of singles out too.

Eddie Tuduri Drum healer

Barbara, a friend in Florida sent me a link about a drum healer and lo and behold, Eddie is an old friend. Go Eddie Go! Eddie and I played drums in the 70’s in L.A. He got all the good gigs. Great drummer! He broke his neck surfing and made a tremendous comeback. We hung out together at Rick Allen’s Rock mansion(Def Leppard) up in Malibu a few years ago.

God bless these guys for sharing the groove. and showing how rhythm heals.

We will be drumming everyday for as long as it takes, til the economy does a turn around. Join in and create a new consciousness around the country and the world by sharing the downbeat with all different kinds of people. This will reach a critical mass of consciousness and things will change for the better.

Forgive Pain Accept Love meditation at Cassadaga, Fl

Here is a humble offering for those of us who keep the memory of painful past experiences alive by dwelling on them. This becomes a repeated pattern, a loop of behavior- a rhythmic pattern of memory. This happens to us unexpectedly and becomes a pervasive part of our daily consciousness. But it is not real. It is only thought. The drum groove can change the patterning, opening up an opportunity for positive new events. Remember to treat the process gently with compassion for our own being as well as compassion for whatever we are releasing.

You Don’t Have to be Forgiven with yet another reworked bridge

Thank-you for the feedback on my bridge. I was rewriting it anyway. So here is yet another version. I might change it again. Light and love to you. Courage to change the things that I can, Wisdom to know the difference. Reworking dreams is a life long project.

“You Don’t Have to Be Forgiven” with a new bridge. I shot the video on Dec. 29, 2008 at Santa Monica Pier, California. It was a balmy night, very nice. If you happened to be with someone you could cuddle up with on the beach.

Here is a rewrite. Jan 5

The most recent version with another rewritten bridge: Jan 7
