Subject: RE: Washington Square Memories
I spent much happy time in the Village hanging around(slept there on the benches on occassion, the Square being the spiritual center of it all, if the weather was good. I had the best day I ever had, busking there New Years Day 1973. where is Mark Spoelstra these days, he was an early influence and I still can play JESSE'S JUMP. Started hanging out there at 14, later moved to the Village to play the baskethouses, worked at the FOLKLORE CENTER (after Izzy left). It changed my whole life.
