From Janis: I've known John since Christine Lavin introduced us at a Philadelphia Folk Festival, when I went down to breakfast worried that I no longer knew anyone after so many years away. Chris took me to a table with (I think!) John, Patty Larkin, Cliff Eberhardt, and several others. John's sweetness took my breath away. Years later, I was doing a master class at that same festival and, not knowing John was in the audience, used the way he enters a stage to illustrate how an artist should make the most of their natural movements and inclinations, rather than pretend to be someone else. As part of it, I imitate John walking on stage and picking up a guitar. I'm forever grateful that he saw the humor and sense in it and is still a good friend. He was the very first to respond to my invitation, and deservedly received more than 50,000 hits within a couple of days!

BETTER TIMES WILL COME 
(Janis Ian)

Better times, better times will come.
Better times, better times will come.
When this world learns to live as one,
oh, better times will come

When we greet each dawn without fear
knowing loved ones soon will be near
When the winds of war
cannot blow any more
Oh, better times will come

Better times, better times will come.
Better times, better times will come.
When this world learns to live as one,
oh, better times will come

Though we live each day as our last
we know someday soon it will pass
We will dance, we will sing
in that never-ending spring
Oh, better times will come

Better times, better times will come.
Better times, better times will come.
When this world learns to live as one,
oh, better times will come

Better times, better times will come.
Better times, better times will come.
When this world learns to live as one,
oh, better times will come
Oh, better times will come
