Who knew that a song you once recorded nearly 30 years ago would have such relevance today? Fun read, thanks for sharing this.

Looks like a wonderful time and some memories from childhood flooded back. Those were some good ole days.


Many thanks for your week of ruminations on poets, including several that I wasn't familiar with. Your roundup on Celtic Thunder and FFV is especially welcome. I find the intersections between poetry and music fascinating and regenerative.

Ah, wish I had heard The Vestibule, but I do fondly remember The Real Good Band,their predecessor in the hallowed halls and nearby bars of Iona College in the late 60s. Long may they ride the heavenly airwaves of the mind.
Thanks so much, my friend, for this lovely series of poetry and music comments. I am saving them all, and plan to share them with many friends. Hope you write more!
