Old Man: If I don’t have a right to revenge, who does?!
KCC: No one.

David Carradine: That was the theme, really. It’s an anti-revenge television series.

Kung Fu: The Journey From Grasshopper to Caine

Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year,

Buddy Pat Jeff

Our Christmas card – happy, creative days! Mom estimates I was about age-5.

I barely remember that my mouth was red because I had just been to the dentist where they used red dye to help spot cavities.

My dad’s real name was Philip, but many called him Buddy.

(music video) Kenny Loggins: Outside From The Redwoods – ‘Danny’s Song’

Years ago, I enjoyed this concert on DVD very much, and just now got it out to have another look.

Even though these are young Redwoods, this must be a great setting for a concert in which love is showcased — to actually be there — and be able to look straight up — can’t be fully captured in 2D!!!

 Kenny Loggins: Outside From The Redwoods

(audio) Kenny Loggins: ‘Conviction of the Heart’ – Outside From the Redwoods

After Kenny sang this at the PAC in Anchorage, Alaska, I stood to show my appreciation. I was surprised when no one else joined me, since to me, this is such a great song — my favorite by  Kenny.

To me, this song is about attitude, when we stand up for what really is right.

Great lines:

How long must we wait to change
This world bound in chains that we live in
To know what it is to forgive,
And be forgiven?

Do you care enough
To talk with Conviction of the Heart?
