Second post in one day and of course it’s about Bruce Springsteen.

pare_45013This might not seem relevant to Revolution but when I read this paragraph of a piece that will run in “The New York Times” this weekend, I couldn’t help but think of what unites us all as a community:

After more than three decades of shaping American archetypes, Mr. Springsteen sees his career as its own community in the making, shared and constructed with his listeners. “It’s not just my creation at this point, and it hasn’t been really for a long time,” he said. “I wanted it to be our creation. Once you set that in motion, it’s a large community of people gathered around a core set of values.

“Within that there’s a wide range of beliefs, but still you do gather in one tent at a particular moment to have some common experience, and that’s why I go there too.”

Springsteen will be playing the half-time show at this Sunday’s Superbowl and his latest album, “Working on a Dream,” was released this past Tuesday. Tune in to both!
