Logan Heftel singing Beth’s Song (that’s moi!)

Obama’s election caused me to write an email that cause Logan Heftel to write this beautiful song which is called Beth’s Song and almost a year later it still gives me the chills. Logan will be part of an awesome line up at UnCabaret this Sunday.

NO KIDDING

Happy Mother’s Day! Whether you biologically birthed them, adopted them, surrogated them, fostered them, step-mothered them, psuedo mothered them – whether they are people, or ideas, or projects, we are all mothers.
