A cleansing breath sorely needed.
Stirring up past losses, failed conquests, well, it just demands
a turning to the real life things that matter, like a
link to a Tribute to Levon lovingly done by Warren Haines & Band.
It was weird that the last letter I posted #5 occurred at about the same time November 2009 as we got invited to a once in a lifetime Special Midnight Ramble. That was when we saw Kris Kristofferson et many more... at Levon's barn. No more than 200 people hearing and experiencing such a rare concert.
I really took it as a sign at the time of better days. It was like Levon had his Rambles and we went for what I called a "healing". The barn has an intimate quality like no other. At the same time we both read This Wheel's on Fire by Levon Helm, the honest and fascinating story of that man whose eyes sparkle and shine. Levon talked about his childhood's family trouble when the bank "papered them" and what did that mean? They must have called in the loan? And I realized no matter how smart or powerful you think you are, we are all vulnerable to a certain element of greed.
I hope you would consider helping Levon's family and friends save his barn.
Or perhaps you are near Woodstock, NY and want to experience an intense musical venue you will never forget.
