About Me Frustrated idealist (how unique!). Believe our nature is basically good, but perverted by various cultural, economic, religious,and political forces. Love performing live music (renaissance, gospel, baroque), bringing people together for interfaith projects. Moody at times. Enjoy teaching.Avid Argentine tango dancer. Interests in mythology, human evolution, creative re-visioning of religious and political institutions, values. Personally shamed as an American by the pseudo-election of Bush. Have had wonderful musical life, performing & recording renaissance and gospel music. Recently produced interfaith music CD to build musical bridges between faith traditions. Participated in international architectural competition in interfaith sacred space.

My Philosophy
What Gives Me Hope Music, dancing tango, hearing people speak passionately about political and justice issues.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by As president, I'd initiate legal proceedings in a world court against all former US politicians and employees involved in war crimes and immoral foreign policies (e.g., Kissinger, Negroponte, Bush 1 and 2, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice, Wolfowitz, Abrams et al.), and against all corporations and stockholders who profited from manufacture of landmines and other anti-human weapons of mass destruction, especially depleted uranium used against Iraq. Require disgorgement of all related profits to benefit landmine victims, and sentencing of all guilty executives to cleanup of 100 million landmines worldwide. Make Fox TV licensing contingent upon production of new series, led by Noam Chomsky, documenting corporate, military, and political crimes of the past 50 years. Send all fanatic religious leaders to their rooms without TV or phone privileges, until they're ready to behave like caring adults. Let all ethnic separatists have their own governments, and declare officially that the entire planet is Holy Land for everyone.
What/who changed my life and why Moby Dick, Apocalypse Now -- both are deep archetypal works portraying the eternal human struggles of light and dark elements of our being. TS Eliot's 4 Quartets, same reason.
