Fair to Middlin’

Mom

Is actually doing fine. Mostly in good spirits and some of my friends sent very thoughtful cards and we went to dinner at places Gordon didn’t like to go. Chinese food mostly.

Flying home

Obviously my mind was full and my heart was glad. No flight delays and a normal layover, this time in Los Angeles. Thinking about the music talk with Greg in Denver had me bookmarking the Country Music series Ken Burns had done, and specifically episode six about my favorite era, the 60’s and 70’s in Nashville. Johnny and Waylon and Kris. Kris Kristofferson and the ‘Me and Bobby McGee’ story is one of my favorites, Roger Miller too. A rabbit hole into Kris’ life and philosophy led to an unexpected C.S. Lewis commonality to the poet William Blake.
