about

Common Ground was recorded on election day 2016.

In this divided social and political climate, I yearn for more compromise, more honesty, more perspective. At the core of all our actions is the basic wish for happiness. Disagreement is a productive part of progress if we can honor this basic wish in others opinions. Instead of harboring fear or anger towards people or ideas that are different, recognize the different path to happiness and allow any possible new perspective to your own path. It is important to believe strongly in your values, but you must also recognize that "to concede is not giving up. Its only making room for you to compromise on common ground."

lyrics

To concede
is not giving up.
It's only making room for you
to compromise
on common ground.

Fear
divides us,
scared that they
will take it all away.
But our right to be free
comes with the obligation
to recognize
the many paths
we all take
to happiness.

Happiness is what we all seek.
Happiness is what we all desire.

To concede is not giving up.
It's only making room for you
to compromise
on common ground.
