From Janis: I wasn’t familiar with Kevin Frank’s work, so I lucked in when another comic artist asked him if he’d participate. In addition to sending his own work for the project, Kevin also sent my invitation on to his daughter Renee. She and John Caffin (the “male subject” in the video) are both students, working on their film making and other forms while actively creating art projects in their limited spare time. Very pleased to have them here, especially with that ukelele going!

(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
