    Space in the velvet green

    Whew. Faulkner’s Sound and the Fury. Good existentialism in that stream of consciousness.

    Set lists on paper usually don’t capture the experience most of the time.

    Viola Lee Blues is the best song of all time

    Viola Lee is a powerhouse! She transformed the Dead and the Dead transformed her. Jamming was born within and of her. As as far as her lyrics, I look to the deeper meaning within where a seemingly simple song speaks volumes about life’s greatest obstacle to living and paints the landscape for the jam to be born. The complexity of negotiating the finite and its seeming decrees of the way you are, and the world is, can lead to imprisonment of the spirit. An inability to express oneself because of those decrees by authority (judge) and cronies ( clerks), whether external or internal, provide a stumbling block until overcome. For we are all just players, players for each other, on life’s stage, and it is all a dream. The great Emmett Fox likens unforgiveness to imprisonment. Many a person has been imprisoned in and by the moment, our greatest fear, whether by their own judgement or another’s. Born of spirit, we fear being fixated, as stagnation is where death lives, where the wellspring of spirit cannot move and is dry of life. Only through flow of spirit does life exist. Perhaps instead of a crime, it is a tragedy that haunts the narrator. The narrator sends up a letter mailed in the air, a prayer for release and absolution. When I was 7, my best friend, my first friend I really deeply bonded with, was struck by a car and killed, when the car illegally skirted around the bus. I wrote her a letter and buried it in the yard to send up my love to her. In my simple way, I physically spoke to her my love, a more demonstrative way of prayer. Some traditions believe you write your grievances and burn the letter, sending it up to the heavens. Reconciliation allows freedom, whatever that may look like. The ensuing jam is the struggle against imprisonment and the torture of a spirit that wishes to live free. The jam is furious and full of soul. The crescendo dives back into the downbeat and the narrator once again lifts up a prayer, mailed in the air. Got it get back to the garden...

    Need ideas for license plate

    I use the soon “resize it” and dial it down to 320X 400 or so selection and save it. Then you can upload to forum. How gifs are loaded are beyond my searches fruition! I think it might have to do with windows base instead of Mac products

    Dark Star at the NW string summit

    This should be fun! Go for it!! Recreating “in the spirit” of 8/27/72 according to Instagram - maybe because of time constraints? For me bluegrass is about as hit and miss as country. It is all over the place and some of it is plain out terrible imho.

    Random thoughts and randomness in general

    Sometimes it's the people you go out of your way most to help out, work the hardest to reach out and meet, that seem to be the least appreciative. I actually wrote a bit of "poetry" about expectations f I may be so bold to call it that. Expectations are the drag in the room, The purgatory of a customer service line. The cancelled flight, an airport plight The downer, an energy vampire. The dream will never unfold. A story cannot be told When held captive to a fixed page. Life, made of stardust and light, Breathes in ebb and flow.
