good song ron,
the kind intent of the universe is
moving through those gals.
it is.

i concur with your sentiment and i also admire their's talent.

now give the clancy boys a listen.
not far from magic, they.

you see, im a dutchman,
and i grew up next to a 100 acre
old-growth ranch "manned" by
a lady named margaret.

i used to walk over and she would
be stewarding the forest,
and she came from hard times
so there was always a tea about,
spiked with some gem...

i'd load her station wagon
with brush, and then help her burn it.
she'd share her flask with me.
i was 8.

her hubby had died,
and she was in love with her land.

years on, she had an aweful stroke,
and i found her, out drapped
miserably over a stump
and i helped her up, and drove
the brown corolla back to her cabin,
and called in for help.

margaret ended up in home,
and her spirit stayed on the ranch.
she starved herself to death,
i watched her wither, but i
could already see in her eyes
that no spark she harbored.

after she died,
her offspring inherrited the ranch,
and they had no connection to it.
so they sold it to the highest
bidder, which happened to be a logging firm.

i watched with great sorrow
the gutting of margaret's forest.

after the loggers were departed,
her campus went to ruins,
and i'd still visit, now and then.
collecting little momentoes of the shattered past.

some of these momentoes i put into my home,
that i built.

so margaret followed,
and now she resides on our land,
and we together, herald the forest entity;

though ironically,
i've become a logger in my pursuit of zero debt.
usually i concentrate on dead trees,
but occassionally i step on margaret's smile
and pivot on her rotten teeth as i clear-cut
some future building site.

i fall asleep on those days with sap on my heart,
the valves stuck wide open,
and i thrash about, in simul misery-wonder,
about where i've been and where im going.

and margaret, bless her,
is always there to soothe me as
we together, grow into the past,
and when i finally discover slumber,

she blows out the candle.

Awesome Weeg,, youve got a deep woodsmans soul - i know them well..

You "think on things often"..



edit: Ive had to "murder" old gents that were there on the hills growing for some 600 yrs only to have a jolt of super charged electricity send it into precarious circumstance. In felling it was an honor, and it death it was sad. One to die so others may live. I considered that very thing on every tree i ever marked for harvest..

I found Sid and Nancy a bit more compelling although a buddy in Seattle knew
Anne and Nancy and said they were very nice and good to hang with. Sid and
Nancy were prolly not easy to hang with.

I read somewhere the two sisters owned a studio in Seattle where a bunch of the classic grunge bands recorded.

Got you so beat Anderson !

Anne and Nancy played my 9th grade high school dance in a new band called Heart.

They were Led Zeppelin clones at the time, so us fourteenagers put up with them playing Magic Man as long as we got to rock out to Stairway to Heaven.

The teachers had their hands full trying to stop all the mutual dry humping, under the glitter ball, in a darkened gymnasium...

After, we got no school dances for a while because of the neighbors complaining about all the barfing of beer on their lawns.

OK so I saw Heart play at the Nashville motor speedway back in the day. I was in the pit at the edge of the stage. I knew their music but not the band. The guitarist was dressed in jeans and a paisley vest with a pirate shirt. I thought he was a bit flamboyant. He did not sing at all.

It was literally YEARS before I learned he was a she... hah!

But sorry old dudes, they are SO Petty Como.

Jim, might have been the same year - I saw Heart at the 1st concert I ever went to, in '74 when I was in grade 11. They opened for BTO at the Kamloops Rodeo Arena (B.C., Canada). I was quite impressed to see two sisters leading a band and rocking out so hard!

That's great Terry !

It's good to see that something big was happened during doing the school dance circuit in 1975.

A shout out to Mushroom Record who did a lot of good for a lot of bands in the 70's and 80's. Alas, this musical oasis lost ground to the property values it stood upon.

It wasn't lame assed DMT...

It was anything live in the age of canned music. Especially covers of the good stuff. It didn't matter !
