A Small Circle of Friends

ABOUT a dozen stalwart supporters sat in a circle for a totally unplugged performance. No mics, no PA, no cords—just a direct connection. Wonderful for me, and apparently for the audience as well. The way music should be heard.

All Saints Lutheran feeds 100 to 150 homeless and working poor every Tuesday night.

The evening netted over $100, not a lot but more than we started with. Every little bit helps support the good work. It’s what Jesus—or in my case, the Buddha—would do.

BodhiBill.com is about sharing the songs I've been gifted with. Where did they come from? Two remarkable, life-changing events happened In 1996. First, I experienced an unexpected encounter with a friend of the family who was dying. The impact was so profound I left my career in advertising and became a board certified chaplain, working with the dying. Second, original songs began channeling through me with no warning. This was a complete surprise. Even though I'd played guitar since high school, I'd never considered myself a songwriter—or even a singer for that matter. More like a third-rate folk music plunker. But the songs came through anyway. Since I retired in 2015, I now have the time to record and share these songs. Although they are not "commercial" in style or content, I feel they are lovely little gems worth preserving and sharing.
