Lance Harrison Lance and Donna Nosirrah Ecnal

I don't use the blog as a 'go to' to get my thoughts out. But I figure I may as well keep trying to write more. We just got back from the U.S. of America. LA to Nashville, two months then back to LA and out. We had a real good time with friends and family. We cleaned out a storage room that we had been renting for way too long, had a giant yard sale, gave all the rest to Goodwill. Well, not all. We still have over 50 major works of art by Donna's ex-hunband, the late Arthur Orr. My son has graciously agreed to store them in his garage of his new home. Also stored there are a few boxes of photos, writing and memories that will become "The Book". We told some of our travel stories while we were there and we got so many exuberant responses that we really should write the book! We have some old interviews that we need to transcribe which would be a good start and I think what I'm saying is... maybe it's time.

What a confusing bunch of hoops you have to pass through to transfer from one service to another! Both were helpful and it finally happened. I'm curious what you think of the site. Anything that you find missing? Something that would make it better?  Let me know!

Now it's back to working all those other projects that seem to fill my day much better than camping out on Facebook. The turmoil post USA election is just to much to keep trying to follow and it's not like we change anything by reading about it. We help where we can with donations but life continues. Here's few good ones that can help make a real difference. We must move forward.

Planned Parenthood - A donation to the organization would help keep clinics open and make crucial information available to the public, with the proceeds shared between the local affiliate and the wider federal group.

Center for Reproductive Rights - The center aims to legally advocate for reproductive rights, including access to birth control, safe abortion procedures, and unbiased sources of information.

Natural Resources Defense Council - The group works to safeguard communities across the globe, pushing for environmental laws that help protect the ecosystem.

International Refugee Assistance Project - Supporting the IRAP will ensure refugees get the legal support they need, with or without the support of the U.S. president.

NAACP Legal Defense Fund - Supporting the NAACP Legal Defense Fund will protect minorities’ civil rights.

The Trevor Project - Provides resources for LGBT individuals and offer suicide prevention services.

Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund - Seeks to help Mexican Americans and support them in legal issues.

I've been working on the new website now for about 4 days and just about have it in good enough shape to launch it. Most everything in one place; videos, photos, a store with CDs and t-shirts, info about Lance music configurations. It feels pretty good to me! I'm always open to suggestions so feel free to contribute! Thanks, L

Maybe now we can all get back to work! 

I was reading an article the other day about how creativity is falling behind due to so many people spending so much time connected to Facebook, SnapChat, whatever. I admittedly spend way to much time online. So, my post election resolution is to break free of the constant attention I give to the news and get back to writing more music! All the best. L
