Thread Name: Getaway Memories 2006
Subject: RE: Getaway Memories 2006
This morning before getting in my car, I grabbed some CDs from the rack. I didn't really look at what I was grabbing. I needed some different songs in the car.
One of them was Bob Zentz' 'Hove To And Drifting'. As I drove down Marine Corps Drive through Piti, Asan, Anigua, Hagatna, Tamuning, and Tumon, I listened to his music and relived a night in Norfolk with Bob and a few of his friends, sitting in a bar trading songs and stories. The music awoke emotions and brought tears into my eyes, tears arising partly from the themes in some of the songs and partly from the memories of that night and so many others when I sat with friends and music and listened and sang from the heart.
Thanks to all my friends for those memories. And for those of you with whom I have not yet shared such times, I look forward to the opportunity.
If any of you know Bob please tell him of this and thank him for me.
