Waltz 22.3

This video is not going to change the world so what's the hurry

Matter of fact don't hurry at all

And while you are at that - nothing at all - I'll take credit for it

      OK

'Cause like I said:   This video is not going to change the world

Do you think John Bowne or John Cage would say that if they were here?

After all what did they know about video or for that matter changing the world

They were just a couple of 'Johns'

One John's courage helped establish freedom of conscience / freedom of religion in America

The other John's signature vision shaped / shell-shocked / shot-gun shined what we now perceive

     as sound, music and the inter-play of both within literary self-expression

So this video is not going to change the world

Maybe you won't either

But I'm still singing out to you:   Get your "John" on, any-way!

Go at your own pace

But never forget:  The World is on fire and you got a mega-hose of H2O in that view-finder

I call your soul.
