    Muse
    surges through the hiss
    Clio harmonizes

    _Ed, when technology was less 'perfect,' didn't we all wonder more deeply? Tnx for the good 'circular memories.'_M

    I really like yours. My response is really partly tongue-in-cheek. I immediately associated the number 78 to the Tarot deck and then realized it was an old record! :-)

    the restless wind

    ...enjoyed this, Ed....succinctly evocative.

    ah, the memories! Small timber town, only the butcher,the pub & the mills had electricity... winding up the old gramophone at a girlfriends place and listening to such things as 'Old Shep' and 'The Sheik of Scrubby Creek'... well, we only had her father's choice of records :)

    Nice one, Ed!
    And all of us who can recall a scene like this
    are surely dating ourselves!

    Ed,

    I miss those days we spent dusting off the old Grateful Dead records (Europe '72), drinking northern lagers and you sharing your extensive knowledge about life, love and Dylan. You're a true talent and I am honored to know you. I miss you and thank you for everything. You'll never know the impact you've had on my life.
    All my love to your wife, daughter and grandson.

    Jeff
