I have two new song videos to share. One is a duet by Debbie and me doing a very acoustic version of one of our favorite Christmas carols, "In the Bleak Midwinter."

The other is my contribution to saving of American democracy. But what can I do? What can any of us do? We can do our best. As Maya Angelou said, "Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better."

Before our last election I had been writing limericks. Then after the election I stacked a bunch of limericks together, put it to some guitar, found a chorus and, Presto! A new song. It has an optimistic chorus and title: "Come Back America".

Let's do better.


Come Back America
