Palm Sunday in Portugal

A full moon and new possibilities.

Wishing everyone a beautiful Palm Sunday from the city of Braga, Portugal. Yesterday, in Lisbon with Sound Walk Collective n Jesse Paris Smith joined us on stage for the encore, playing keyboard on Wing and People Have the Power. Below is video of Wing shot by Janine Bub. Tonight is the full moon and we are performing in Braga where Jesse and I will perform these songs in celebration of Palm Sunday. I also want to wish those of the Jehovah Witness faith, especially my sister Linda, a beautiful Memorial.

The triumphant entry of Christ by Giotto

And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strewed them in the way.   And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.    And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this?  And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee. Matthew 21.

The weather is perfect in Braga. I wish everyone a beautiful night, the moon will be full, so look up.
