Respond with Love by Dennis Warner

It's been a tough month in Minnesota. The George Floyd murder trial is now wrapping up while another unarmed young black man was shot and killed by police in a Twin Cities suburb. Heartache on all sides. And that's just in Minnesota. What about where you live?

I believe that we can choose to make this a more peaceful planet. I believe in the possibility of us being more kind WITH each other and less fearful OF each other. It's our choice to make.

Here's a new song recorded at my home in Clearwater.
Love to you all.

Yesterday we lost a great musician here in Minnesota, Peter Ostroushko. Of course, he was more than just a midwest icon, with tours and recognition far beyond the Minnesota border.

Peter worked with many famous folks like Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Garrison Keillor, Chet Atkins, Emmylou Harris and John Hartford. He also helped many not so famous folks like yours truly, recording with me on the "My World" cd. That was a wonderful experience.

A bunch of us got together and performed a benefit for Peter in 2019, after he survived a stroke that left him unable to play music. Doug Wood organized this fun night, helping out our wonderful musical friend.

RIP Peter.

 Hand sanitizers

Clearwater, MN

It's a new year and there's hope on the horizon with vaccines getting started and a new administration beginning next week. Let's all keep our sanity through this transition period.

I got a laugh out of this photo on Facebook. In western Minnesota last week, this very thing almost happened to me at a Holiday gas station coffee bar. A syrup bottle was sitting by itself and turned backwards, so no label was facing me. I thought, "How cool that they have hand sanitizer back here where everyone's touching the coffee spigots!"

My better angels weren't slacking off that day and protected me from embarrassing myself. Whew!

I guess having my hands smell like hazelnut wouldn't be the worst thing in the world...
