A rambling train of thoughts about the universe and our micro solar system consisting of our dear Sun and other planets in a magnetic dance while we hurtle through space on the face of a rock and stare at flat screens where we attempt to connect while we detach.

It was a perfect night,
Beautiful Woodstock, NY Catskill Region
spring slow but persistent.
The rain burst through once but we missed it.
The cool air fine.
am going to post some photos of the area once I sort through them.
So the first hour or so Carolyn Wonderland et al played...She gets better all the time,
Whether Vocals, Guitar, lap steel, and Bird Calls...What a whistler!
Rob kept the beat going with Levon's magic Red drum set.
Cole getting entranced in keyboards and his left hand running keys controlling bass sounds.
Cindy Cashdollar showed her skill at playing, Shelly King, great voice, guitar.
Next to play was
Doing songs of The Band.
All around Great!
One after another favorite band tune...
