“Dear Donny,

Just wanted to say thank you the beautiful songs you write. I purchased one of your CDs many summers ago at Kayumari. I hadn’t listened to it much recently but still had it around. I was feeling kind of down and overwhelmed by oil spills, the state of the world and living with a depressed spouse. I started listening to your songs again and memorizing them as I drove to work. They helped me to realize and remember that the only thing I can do is to be loving and kind, do my best to use the resources of the earth as minimally as I can and walk in peace. So now every time I get stressed or anxious I sing one of the songs and gradually I feel better.

I have memorized 3 so far and almost have a 4th one down. A much better use of my time then worrying.

Thanks again.”
