Change is a constant; years change, politicians change, seasons change, music changes. The question is how well we steer and adapt to these changes. This week as we teeter on the verge of a new year and a new politics in the USA, I share global songs of change and progress. Enjoy, and let’s go into the new year and find ways to make it better … locally and globally. Happy new year.
