Subject: RE: An Open Letter to Rick Fielding
Thanks for sharing that, Eve; it's beautiful.
Rick, my new grandson, Morgan, now four months old, has had a little cold. Yesterday, he was cranky; didn't want the bottle, to be held, or anything else we tried. Finally I put him on a blanket on the floor to just let him fuss. I could tell he was fighting sleep and just feeling a bit puirly.
Then, as promised, I took "Peaches" down off the wall, and played for you and Morgan. I played Jean Petite Biron and my own Touchstones. Do you know, that baby's first expression was a gentle smile, which went right off into a BIG smile and then a big sigh of contentment. He drifted gently off to sleep as I played a few more tunes, all of them with you in my heart and mind. Thanks to you and Spaw and Night Owl for that inspiration.
