From Janis: I wouldn’t have known about BreviT (pronounced brev-i-tee) without Dave Blazek’s website, which intrigued me so much that I just had to “meet” the site designer. From there it was a short step to discovering that he played and sang; even better, his wife is a graphic artist who draws cartoons “just for family and fun”. Lucky people! I asked Steven and Gail if they’d contribute something here, and they came up with this absolutely stunning version, complete with video. Make sure you stay tuned for the “choo-choo” train toward the end, showing how fast we’re all hoping those better times arrive.

(Janis Ian)

Better times, better times will come.
Better times, better times will come.
When this world learns to live as one,
oh, better times will come

When we greet each dawn without fear
knowing loved ones soon will be near
When the winds of war
cannot blow any more
Oh, better times will come


Though we live each day as our last
we know someday soon it will pass
We will dance, we will sing
in that never-ending spring
Oh, better times will come
