Subject: RE: Songs of hope and optimism
I just got in from a late gig. It's about twenty below and windy as hell...I also just finished bringing out two weeks of trash in barrels that kept falling over...and then trying to put trash stickers on--'cept the glue would freeze before you get it on the trash bags...now I just realized that it's recycling day as well...

I opt for "The Cremation of Sam Mcghee"...I recited it tonight to the tune of Streets of London...for the first time in twenty years it worked. No wonder Bill Staines tours as much as he can.
