the bars are all closed today lady

tiny little glitch in continuity

snakes stir in the thistles/back of cats neck bristles

you make me drift up and float

and i gotta get up

i stay but never leave

i saw at once that he was mad

down the swaying corridor/people you feel sorry for

when the mourning comes at last

sometimes i'm wan'drin' under prehistoric skies

do you accept my card?

real estates prime

and we all known hurt

and the spirits are still within their trees

    oh yeah, it’s there in the pictures
    white sun rising, beaming through your door
    dreams of nostalgia, a sleeping slumber, self restore

    are you in america or in another world?

    Looks like an OK hotel. Nice lamp. Nice contemporary sofa. Nice vase with tastefully arranged fake foliage sticking out of it. I’m not digging those plastic coat hangers, though. They scream Motel 6!

    I hope you have a lot of great experiences on this tour, Steve!

    Those black and white photos look cool, especially no. 4, 5 & 6 – very cleverly done. All the best for the American tour. I’ll have to be content by watching “Goldfish, (jokes, magic & souvenirs) for the time being.

    Welcome back old friend !!! I hope you enjoy your time leading up to the blistering set you and the men will thrill L.A with on Wednesday evening. Have some fun, get some rest. I have 2 very nice books that I am going to pass on to Wes (He is with this trip/tour??? Yes???), So as I do not want to bother you before your show here in Chicago next week. I really believe you will enjoy the author, Reginald Gibbons, He is a Professor of Lit at NorthWestern University-just outside Chicago. He composes poignant, yet profound poetry regarding the city streets and neighborhoods in and around Chicago. The books are quite short, I imagine he may be also, and are a quick…satisfying… read. The poems stay with you for quite awhile because his imagery is like no other poet from my fair city.

    Be safe and well and see you in a week…

    We’re both going round the world from the antipodes- you’re heading east, me west – we’ll meet in the middle- for one day Philadelphia will be the navel of the world.
    I can’t wait for that show. It’s the heyday of my “musical” life…

    the last picture looks like one of those “can you find the hidden pictures?” pages in a Highlights magazine (for children). Those were my favorite diversion while waiting in our dentist’s office as a young girl — I still get all happy when I see one (the magazine) sitting in some office, grab it, and go to the hidden pictures page… well, can you?

    My guitar sometimes plays itself
    They say it’s static electricity but
    Yesterday it took twenty dollars off the shelf

    Btw is that Donnette in the top photo?

    Welcome to.the states mate. Can’t wait to see you rocknrolla
