Saying Happy July 4th with a Song and Whatnot

This morning I got up feeling inspired.  So I got out the pens and colored pencils and created the work of art at the left.  It will be appearing in the martial arts book (here are the links in case you haven’t pre-ordered yet).

In other news, guess what day it is?

Look here — America ain’t perfect by a damn sight.  We’ve got a lot to work on.  And yet, when we’re hitting on all cylinders and we’re at our best, we are one hell of a country.  So I guess I just want to say Happy Independence Day 2016 to my fellow Americans and friends around the world the best way I know how.  With a song.

I know, I know, I shouldn’t give up my day job.  But when you have these feelings you have to give voice to them while you have the chance.

You only have one life to live.  So, like the fireworks that are going to be exploding into the skies tonight, you need to flash without shame or hesitation and shine as brightly as you can.
