You ARE making perfect sense to me ... as you always do.

Here we are, in the year of 2005, trying to remember what it was like, way back then. Our memories differ. And our interruptions differ. Yet we KNOW that those were some incredible times and experiences. And they ceratinly were.

Today, we are worried about the dangers of strange bombings that seem to make no sense. And yet the social "explosions" that we experienced "back then" didn't seem to make a lot of sense either. But somehow, for better or worse, we survived them until today.

Over the years of chasing the wiley folk song, I've had to sit and exchange thoughts and talk and songs with many people that were not necessarily of my preference. I've spent time with biggots, racists, KKK members, right wing biggots, christian biggots, many holy rollers, people of all colors and likes and disslikes.

If this has taught me anything, it has taught me to not be judgemental, to keep my tape recorder handy, and look for the song.

As always, I look forward to your postings! Cheers, Bob
