"Reality is a funny thing, you know... Reality is what you believe; believe
it to be. It's what you put your thought and energy into, because your hands
physically manifest thought. So your world becomes what you feel and what
"You have to realize: ok, I don't know how to solve a political problem, I
don't know how to solve the pollution problem... all I know is in my own life,
I need to figure out some sense of purpose, I need to figure out how to
be happy... and I'm willing to give up looking at all you and trying to do
everyone else's laundry and look at myself and what do I need... and that's
profound. We point so many fingers and go 'this person isn't... are you
blah blah blah?" If we all just took care of ourselves it'd be very
efficient... all I can do ultimately in my own life... all I can speak
is from my experience."
Jewel appeared in Boston at The Borders Bookstore on Saturday, May 18th. In the Gallery sent to me from Jeff Smith.
The Internet world caught a few shots of Jewel in rapid succession on Thursday, May 16th, just three days after fellow Atlantic Records recording artist Tori Amos gave it a taste at the Virgin Megastore. Jewel performed with Duncan Sheik at the Irving Plaza while audio and 5 shots per second video were broadcast over the net. The site currently holds an archive of this and other broadcasts for your convenience at Atlantic Records Digital Arena

Duet anyone? Jewel answered that question posed last fall by Melissa Etheridge and the result was something to watch . . . Over and over again on VH1 Duets. Melissa performed with Joan Osbourne (Bring Me Some Water & St. Teresa), Paula Cole (Occasionally), Jewel (You Can Sleep While I Drive & Foolish Games) and Sophie B. Hawkins (Damn, I Wish I Was Your Lover). Guess who stole the show? Don't miss it. . . again.
