From Janis: The first time I saw this video, it made me soooo happy! From Woodstock, New York, Simi’s not just a singer and musician – she’s also a wonderful visual artist, as you can tell. She’s worked with a wide range of talents, from Natalie Merchant and David Byrne to Tamar-Kali Brown, the Gipsy Kings, and Neko Case. Her stated mission is “to ease the audience through the rough edges of life.” No wonder I loved what she sent!

(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
