Have a few of our friends, family, (and some political figures), become mindless zombies? Is there something seductively hypnotic about experiencing decades of one sided opinion loaded with hate and disdain for civility that hijacks people’s humanitarian souls?

Can they be awakened to reality and the beauty of this world we live in?

That would be nice.

Last night, P & J produced some entertaining and heartfelt music at the Post Office Saloon and Grill. There were moments of melodic magic between the 2 guitars and the vocals.

The frontal lobes are necessary to generate insight, judgement, self awareness, abstract thinking, logic, reasoning, and all the tools we need to savor the gift of being human.
