Re what Kendall said: My wife's father is alive and doing quite well at 95. But two of her siblings are gone, one twenty years ago and one over ten years ago. As a bunch of you know, we very, very nearly lost my wife about 14 months ago now. I was torn apart, not only with the thought of losing her, but with the prospect of having to tell her father that the third of his four children was gone. I'm very thankful that it didn't come to that.

We're all in need of some reflection and soft sounds.....Life has so much harshness and at times becomes so slicing and piercing that we have to slow down, breathe deeply, remember how to love and how to care and how we enjoy great friendships.   

I smile when I think of you all and this thread.........I hope you do the same.

And I'm doing fine!

Thinking particularly of Morgan and Roger, and Nigel and Ann tonight. All of us are feeling the aftershock of so many needs and heartaches- let us feel even more keenly the joys and triumphs to which we have been as clouds of witnesses.

I find some comfort in handling the amazing wild birds we transport to the area sanctuary- a female loon and juvenile heron this week- and in training our newest bantam chicks.

I need some music writing but have no private place for it.

Love to ye all.

Thank you, Janie. Your link lead me to this one:
"Child of the Wind"

Bruce Cockburn: Child Of The Wind - Slice O Life, Live Solo (2009)

I love the pounding of hooves
I love engines that roar
I love the wild music of waves on the shore
And the spiral perfection of a hawk when it soars
Love my sweet woman down to the core

There's roads and there's roads
And they call, can't you hear it?
Roads of the earth
And roads of the spirit
The best roads of all
Are the ones that aren't certain
One of those is where you'll find me
Till they drop the big curtain

Hear the wind moan
In the bright diamond sky
These mountains are waiting
Brown-green and dry
I'm too old for the term
But I'll use it anyway
I'll be a child of the wind
Till the end of my days

Little round planet
In a big universe
Sometimes it looks blessed
Sometimes it looks cursed
Depends on what you look at obviously
But even more it depends on the way that you see
Hear the wind moan
In the bright diamond sky
These mountains are waiting
Brown-green and dry
I'm too old for the term
But I'll use it anyway
I'll be a child of the wind
Till the end of my days

At 'Spaw's suggestion, some of Katlaughing's ashes will be sent to me by Roger for several reasons, and one of those reasons and responsibilities is to represent those who participate here, in Jane's Rainbow, whether they may participate by posting, by reading, or by focused caring attention of one or more of us who participate by posting.

I lovingly reject Spaw's characterizing me as executive officer of this thread. We are a versatile and flexible crew, all concerned with community and caring, and clearly I am one in a chorus - one of many at the oars or manning the sails.

Addressing what I have been charged to undertake on behalf of "Jane's Rainbow," please share with me via pm any words, poems, songs, gestures, you want to contribute when I scatter the ashes of Kat with which I am charged on behalf of all of us. I don't know exactly when or where that will happen but will keep you posted.

I came to Mudcat in the fall of 2002. I haven't gone back to research the early, formative days and years that forged Mudcat into the community it became - wasn't really aware there was at one time controversy -or a back story - to threads such as this. I doubt I ever will research it unless I have to time to explore the sociological evolution of Mudcat. Remember, Mudcat was also there on the early frontier of social networking. Obviously, though, this thread wouldn't be here were it not for Kat's advocacy early on.

Legacy.

Sad news above the line - another long time Mudcatter who hadn't been around for a while has died. I didn't know karen k well, but always looked forward to seeing her at Getaways and she was one of those lovely positive presences on Mudcat and so supportive of others in the folk music world of the Northeast USA.

Will the crew join me in a simple and peaceful chorus to sing....

Hey Wendy, I'm expert at opening champagne. I'm on my way.

Tip: Put a tea towel over the cork, grip it tight and turn the bottle (rather than the cork) on a hard surface - like a kitchen worktop. The friction of the bottom of the bottle turning on the surface keeps the champagne calm, so no wasteful spray.

Yeah, I could use a cup. Feeling pretty fair on this gray day. I always liked gray days.....Tom Paxton wrote a good one about them......Just because it isn't bright doesn't mean things are bad.....

Even a gray day,
with a cold wind,
Train late again
Even a gray day,
is a good day now.

Even a black night,
with a hard rain,
With plans down a drain,
Even a black night,
is a good night now.

Fresh out of answers, I threw in my hand
Stood with my back to the wall
But thanks to your kindness that I understand
That it could have been no life at all

Now even a hard time,
with a thin shoe,
And my bills coming due,
Even a hard time,
is a good time now.

Yes even a weekend,
in a strange town,
And the snow comin' down,
Yes even a weekend,
is a good friend now.

Fresh out of answers, I threw in my hand.
Stood with my back to the wall.
But thanks to your kindness that I understand,
That it could have been no life at all

Now even a gray day,
with a cold wind,
My train late again,
Even a gray day,
is a good day now.
Even a gray day,
is a good day now.


Best to all the crew and let's hear some of the latest news huh?
