“Action is the antidote to despair.”

What a morning I have had. I drove my little Jeep Wrangler this morning because I broke the garage door last week that my shop truck goes into. 10 minutes into my commute, it overheated and I pulled off the road. I waited for a tow truck for two and a half hours. That’s why I am just now posting today. My day can only get better!

About Joan Baez
American singer Joan Baez, known for her clear soprano and her belief in music as a tool for change, is widely considered the godmother of modern folk-rock. She was born in New York in 1941. She is an ardent activist, working for civil rights, nonviolence, and worker’s rights. She received the ACLU’s Earl Warren Award for her commitment to international human rights and, at the 2007 Grammy’s, was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award. Her music includes the chart-topping version of “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down” and the album Diamonds and Rust. She has one son.
