Jazzers pray, meditate, and listen. This series interviews various members of the community in southern Marin county. David Harris, a politically active thoughtful citizen, traveled life's paths from "Boy of America" to conscientious objector; married Joan Baez, devout father of two, shares his spiritual practice.

David Harris is known to be a leader in razing objections to political issues. In interviewing him, I discover a man who is a follower. He follows his personal convictions to the exclusion of his own personal comfort. One time Stanford University's student body president, he struck out as a member of a group of freedom fighters to his own discomfort. We hear how in fact, David harris continues his personal journey as a follower; much like the rest of us, making difficult decisions, and bearing up the consequences of following these personal convictions.

"An Artist is considered ahead of their time, because they live in the present."
