"I am speaking today of a great possibility
a chance to return to life
a chance to create a world for our children
not worse than the one we have

"How dare I be discouraged in the work
by anything so trivial
as the fear of personal failure"

~ Paul Williams

Paul William - 1983

Paul Williams is widely regarded as the father of rock music criticism as the creator of Crawdaddy! magazine when he was just 17 years old. He wrote the words above at the age of 34, just 14 years before he suffered a traumatic brain injury in a bicycle accident, leading to early onset of dementia, and a steady decline to the point where he now requires full-time care.

We here at feel that this message is a powerful one and that we need Common Sense now more than ever. We want everyone to hear Paul's message and we want to help his family by donating all profits from the sale of these beautiful books directly to them.
