Paris last week. Yesterday, Mali.
Maybe you - like me - are asking yourselves - what now? What next? Even wondering what you can do.
Bombs and bullets cannot eradicate the hatred and fear in the world. I believe in the need for mutual understanding. I believe in our elemental goodness. I believe in the power of song to crack ourselves open to each other, to open hearts and minds.
So I ask myself - what can I do?
I can launch a series of inspirational interviews and story/songs, to remind us of all the good in the world. To counteract the terror and apocalypse story that is dominating the media. So that's what I'm doing. Stay tuned.
And in a turn on what they used to say at the opening of the TV show Hill Street Blues ("Be safe out there") - Be Love out there.
