Subject: RE: An Open Letter to Rick Fielding
Rick--we're gonna have another Getaway soon, and I know I will see you there in every place I remember you. I don't know why I'm doing this, 'cause neither you nor I believe in spirits or afterlife, but I tell ya', buddy...if there ever was anyone who, under these strange circumstances, could continue to have a presence among a bunch of people who only see each other now & then, you are da one!
You even COMPLIMENTED the food at the Getaway, and I'll be grinning every time I fill my plate with something you professed to like. ...and late at night, when folks get to pickin', we sometimes turn and look at each other as if to say.."shouldn't this be Rick's break?"
and damn it, I never did get to beg you for a leather autoharp strap. I suppose you don't believe in reincarnation, either......well, it's ok, you held and played my autoharp once, and that'll have to do....
