Mick,

Whatever you need, whenever you need it, friend. My heart goes out to you; stay the course, don't forget to nreathe, and come through even wiser for it (if that is possible!). If you need to run off for a bit, you have a pied a terre in San Diego by the healing waters of the Pacific should you need it. Two Martins, an autoharp and a fivestring at your call.

With warmest affection,

Amos

Thanks Mick for letting us have that.

Here is a song I wrote a couple of years ago when my wife's mother died. Last week (March 6th 2001)my brother Brian suddenly died over in Ireland, and I found myself remembering it as I walked up to his place, and I sang it in the pub after we buried him on Sunday. It seemed to fit him well.

I just sang the first two verses - the last one didn't seem necessary. (Maybe it might work better as a first verse, with the other two to follow.)

I find songs can help a lot sometimes. I hope maybe this one might - and I've put it up on my website tonight, with chords, but no notes, - "Over the edge of the world".

Now you've left us behind and you've gone on your way,
over the edge of the world.
You left without warning with so much to say.
Are you just round the corner, or far far away?
Well, goodbye, and I hope I might see you some day,
over the edge of the world.
Now you've gone where nobody can find you,
over the edge of the world.
To follow a star, like the wise men of old,
to search for a treasure, far richer than gold,
and to find a great secret, can never be told,
over the edge of the world.


I'm watching and waiting and trying hard to see
over the edge of the world.
Now your prison is opened, and now you are free,
and that's how I always have known it must be.
And maybe now somewhere you're waiting for me,
over the edge of the world.
Now you've gone where nobody can find you,
over the edge of the world.
To follow a star, like the wise men of old,
to search for a treasure, far richer than gold,
and to find a great secret, can never be told,
over the edge of the world.


Well, I stood at the cross at the far end of town,
and it felt like the end of the world.
The cars and the lorries went round and around,
there were some headed up, there were some headed down -
but there's none of them headed for where you were bound,
over the edge of the world.
Now you've gone where nobody can find you,
over the edge of the world.
To follow a star, like the wise men of old,
to search for a treasure, far richer than gold,
and to find a great secret, can never be told,
over the edge of the world.

(oops calling a JoeClone) Kevin, that is a beautiful song, I wish I had had it for my mother's service. I am sorry for your troubles, too, my friend. '01 is not shaping up too well for us is it? It just feels like if you could open the right door, or turn the right corner, they would still be there. It takes a while to realize that they are not "Here".......

Mick,

My condolances all around, but I must admit, if I had a choice, I'd like to have a sendoff such as you gave Jim. While I know it hurts to love so much, how empty it must be without love. And I think you're right about folkies. We tend to accept the emotions and keep them closer to the surface. I could wish more of the world were this way. It might solve some of the problems we engender by not communicating. God bless you and Darla and their loved ones...ALL of them.

my dad, who played piano for over seventy years, is disappearing to Alzheimers. Still responds to music though. seems like the best thing I can do is sit by his bed and play for him. last time he said "I'm loving every note."

The Parting Glass, what a great song. All it's about is, we're none of us perfect or even particularly adequate, but we do the best we can in the time we've got.

Mick, I'm so sorry to hear of Jim's death. I know from experience that it's especially hard to lose a friend when you feel there are still things that each of you had to say to one another. Although now is certainly a time for tears, hopefully those tears will resolve themselves in a rejoicing for all that you and others shared with Jim. Through that process Jim will continue to live on through the lives of his friends and family. My most positive thoughts go out to you and the other members of CCB as well as to Darla and the rest of Jim's family.

Thanks for your sharing. I hope that, when my time comes, I'll have a friend as good as you to help ease my parting.

So many things that seem sad at the time turn into the most wonderful of memories. the opportunity to sing for your friend at a time when it was needed most....most of us will not get that opportunity. this is memory in teh making. It's hard to see anyone go, but when I'm about to go on to "bigger and better things", I hope I get the kind of send off your friend got!!

All the best, Frank

Ah, Mick, what a loss. Will be saying special prayers for Darla now. She has two battles to work her way through now, facing grief for Jim on top of the cancer, and I hope there will be many people there who can give her the kind of support and loving magic that your love gave to Jim.

Mick,

I have just finished reading both threads, and my heart is breaking. I'm no stranger to the pain and grief of loss, so my breaking heart and my prayers and blessings go out to you and to Jim's family and finally to Jim himself. May your next meeting with your friend and bandmate be as full of meaning as your last.

I have printed your last post (Mar 18/01) to keep as a reminder of the spirit of love in the world, as a light in those dark days that sometimes suddenly come upon us, as they have suddenly come upon you. I have wept over the replies almost as much as I did over your eloquent post. Thankyou for sharing it with us.

{{{{{{{{{{HUGS TO ALL}}}}}}}}}}}

~ Jande
