First of all thanks for all the love, new subscribers! This is my first time building a community on the internet, and so far it’s sweet.
This is a video of one of my bands, Dabbles in Bloom, playing at the Walla Faces winery in Walla Walla, WA.
The song was written on one fateful night that I couldn’t sleep, and was watching the Occupy Livestream. I called up Adriel (frontman on guitar/vox) and he came over and we (mostly he) wrote this song.
There are a lot of people in this world, in positions of great power, who have lost sight of the real meanings of life – to love, to laugh, and to live – and have become addicted to greed and the feeling of independence and power that comes with excess wealth. While the problem is complex, I think the solution is simple:
If we all treat every human being and every plant and animal we come across with a respect for their inherent worth and dignity as lifeforms on this earth, we can break the cycle of greed and resentment. So love your neighbor, your self, your grocer, your boss, and even your enemies. Flashing a toothy grin to a passing stranger can change their life an yours. Occupy Love!
I hope you dig it. (p.s. more dabbles and a link to buy our album “Found It” on iTunes at our website
