(NOVEMBER 22, 2010) -- Last week I started the "100 By 300" membership 
campaign. The goal is to reach 100 members by the 300th show. If you'd 
like to keep The Jazz Session's interviewing coming, please become a 
member today. Thanks!

My thanks to those people who joined since last week:

* Ann Braithwaite (Vanguard level)
* Terri Hinte (Vanguard level)
* Matt Merewitz (Vanguard level)

During the month of November, I'm taking part in the November Poem-A-Day 
challenge and posting a poem each day. This past week I seem to have 
fallen into a bit of a rhythm, writing one relationship poem after 
another. You'll find them all at http://jasoncrane.org.

Please note there is one show this week, because I'm taking a little 
time for the Thanksgiving holiday. This will be my first Thanksgiving as 
a vegan and I'm looking forward to the new experience.

I don't usually share pearls of wisdom from my mom, but many people have 
enjoyed this quote, said by her to me earlier this week:

"Being your mom is like being on a cruise ship during a tsunami."

I think you now have some idea how I turned out the way I did.

survived for 25 years; and the music on the new album, which returns to 
the “classic” E/O sound after several years working with Ethiopian
