    Walking and the assumption
    Of its ability was what united
    Us in the beginning
    If i could not be with you
    I could drift and dream
    Shift and dream to scheme
    My spirit seemed to fly to yours
    At some halfway point
    On foreshore of harbours anywhere
    The coordination of parts
    Felt like actualising communion
    Achieving life
    Now i rest like an invalid
    And you went in a different direction
    I know not where even when you say
    Because of my strange foreign forms
    And driving ambition
    Still my spirit floats somewhere to you
    In spite of it all still the warming
    Sudden out of a swirling mist

    (Keep on rolling stevey kilb. Know what it’s like in n out of fridge or kiln. Are you getting married again in Vegas? Is Ian related to Paul Haugan? I am driving/driven to check out some ancient rock carvings/paintings today to my homesick child in the bush. Of course it’s raining)

    Love Ian’s shirt — we were both ~13 when that came out. But I’m still the most exalted potentate of love.

    Strange Flagstaff is usually cooler up in those mountains. You will surely get some heat out there as this summer seems hotter than normal. Hope all is going well, see you in a couple of weeks in St. Louis. You may have a huge fan base at that show. My wife and I, Suresh, Holly, and we are trying to encourage Anthony Collins to make the trip. Sold out show and very much looking forward to it.

    Take Care,

    You’re looking good Steve. And same with that Ian. I miss MwP but that Ian looks like a cool man. I never wanted to be in Vegas either. My bro was there for business and he paid 17 bucks just for 3 scoops of ice cream for his kids. And it’s decadent as hell. If you have 200 bucks you can buy CDs and art and instruments…. Or you can throw it into some stupid machine for them to pay for lights and flashy billboards. Hmmm…. Well I am thrilled as ever reason being I got my old DVD player out and it’s magically playing again!! Finally got to watch jokes magic and souvenirs for the first time in like 3 years. You guys were a real cool bunch back then. Looked like a lotta fun!! May the teeth of the gods be brittle in your presence If you’re ever looking for a synthesizer player just get me I play the infamous Oberheim ob8 yes the one on van halens cheesy jump and what else… Simple minds loved the Oberheim. I can do drifty pads. Vibrato lines like a violinist on crack. Those old analog square wave leads like you heAr on uhh. Emerson lake and Palmer. I can do the Gary numan kinda stuff like here in my car I feel safest of all. I can do kraftwerk. This machines got it all. AND. I’m available. Lol. Just throwing my ad out there Monsieur Kilbey. I’m 29 and I gotta Oberheim. And ps if you hire me I’ll bring my red fireglo rickenbacker 660/12 for Ian to play. What a genius maestro Ian. Either way I’ll play ob8 for the church or just on my own. But I just wanted to advertise myself. Even tho I just loathe advertisements. Eeek. Can’t wait for tha show in St. Louis. I’m going to get to see the beautiful villas where my family originated. So in short… Tip toe through the tulips will you marry me da da da snap! Kev

    Yeah, i truly never been to Vegas ither, more or less drove through douring the day and it was a desert craphole and too damn hot like you said. Never been back since. I don’t get it really, guess I’m not a gambler, but seems like a waste of money and time myself…or maybe i should get there at night sometime might be enlightening? Hope you had fun regardless of the oven heat! Used to live in Phoenix and know how the heat ‘your talking about’ is…its atrocious!
