Subject: RE: An Open Letter to Rick Fielding
Well, m'dear *Ricky*:-), here we are and there you be, dammit. Leave it to Spaw to make us laugh through our tears and help to put into words what the hole in our heart feels like. Like I needed another hole in mine!
Anyway, Spaw seems to think I know something about afterlife.org...I think he's been out back playing with the faeries, kicking up the litter too much, again, but ya know I have *heard* things about last Saturday night and I know you were travelling a little, checking up on folks you care so much about...one foot here and one foot there. Kind of fun being able to do that, isn't it? Well now you can do it all you want, visit each and every one, play silly games, strum all those geetars and other geegaws we've all got hanging around, startle us out of our wits, then gentle us down with a "Oh, it's just Rick *rifflin* "hello."
Now, you know I named my dulcimore "Peaches" after Spaw's character in the Juke Joint thread...I am ashamed to admit I haven't had her down much lately, but I will do so, directly, in your honour. I've got that old French ditty, "Jean Petite Biron" worked up really good, segued into my own "Touchstones." See what'cha think, okay and leave a light on for us...
boy, we had us some times and you stole our hearts, showing us how to be good to one another and ourselves, most of all,
