Gerald at 48

My brother Phideaux Xavier ( www.bloodfish.com ) sent me a link to a marvelous interview with Ian Anderson here: http://www.classicrockrevisited.com/interviewiananderson2012.htm. As a young person, I adored Jethro Tull and followed their music over the years. I made a few friends around my love of Ian Anderson's music, and recently was saddened to find one of them had passed away, as I went to share this article with her.It is always a shock to find yourself face to face with mortality and the possibility that our time is limited. We really never know what will happen to us, and how much time is left to finish all of our projects, complete our brainstorms and finally work on that magnum opus. Telling folks you love them is always big on the list, and as we never know, it is a reminder to make each day count. Goodbye, Pamela, and may you rest in peace.

Thinking of you Jeri! Very true words.

darn, I just wrote this lovely thing and it made me join google plus and then lost the darned comment. Suffice it to say, oh sweet knitbird, that I love you dearly. And remember Pamela is on a great adventure (see "A Passion Play")...

And we wish her well! Here's to our grand parade!
