Moonlight Beach Chaconne
Performed by violinist Pei-Chun Tsai.
Originally produced for the Lunch and Listen Program.

“Resist” a celebration that we made it through this minefield of outrageous lies and a call to arms! “Resist”
Let us take a moment to truly celebrate and thank each other.

We made it through this swamp of outrageous lies
from a text book socio-path that hypnotized so many of us.,.
“Resist” is a call to be on the lookout for charismatic charlatans
and the simple us-vs-them-ridden scenarios
that they peddle in their wounded self-interest.
History is littered with their destruction.
