Hey K

Sorry, no picture of it. The set is now somewhere else in the world. and yes I still check your blog. I discovered Grace Potter by the Rothbury vine. Hope to ear more from her soon.
Ooops, j'ai écris en anglais!
A bientôt, Richard.

Richard - photos SVP!!

Playin - glad to hear you're on a great path. Teaching is a very rewarding way to contribute to society. Kids always appreciate an open minded mentor, who lets them explore their own interests while supporting them in learning what's required. Sounds like your heart is in it so I know you'll do wonderful things. I hope there are more jobs in your region than in ours... the climate is a bit tough and competitive right now in Ontario in general. Good luck! =)

I wish I could smuggle you all away to the shows. We'll see how we do on Monday for the presale. I don't know if there's a chance in hell of getting Cornell tix, but we've gotta try!

Do let me know if you're ever in the Toronto area, won't you? It'd be great to meet up and trip around a bit.

Love, K

BTW - check my blog lately?

Hey K, c'est un genre de tradition d'écrire son nom à l'arrière des décors que nous utilisons. Celui-ci venant de San Francisco, je ne pouvais passé mon tour.
Playin', in the first act there'a big rock that open in the center, I put it on the stage left side of it.
Take care my friends. Richard.

Bing translator comes through

Hi Richard and K,

Thanks to the handy "Bing translator" I was able to decifer your coded messages.

Richard, where did you paint the lightning bolt!?

K,
I see Furthur are playing in Buffalo. Sounds like your going and maybe to Ithaca too! I am jealous again. Happy for you, but sad for me......not too sad really, actually quite happy but would like to go too.....
Oh well, I'll have to just keep playing and listening for now.
I keep playing with some guys in my neighbourhood. One of them has a feeling that we might end up a GD cover band. :)

K,
so you're a teacher (please don't mark my grammer too harshly!). Well so am I, though not officially yet. Today, I just finished helping a number of first graders with their reading - I loved it!!!!! I've been doing that once a week for a couple of months now. I'm also volunteering at the boys and girls club once a week. Just started helping a ninth grader a couple of weeks ago with his Biology. Now I just need to figure out which program route I want to persue. I'm hopeful my volunteering experiences will point the direction more clearly than I see now.

My kids are 8 and 6 now and my wife is currently at teachers college. I have had enough of the business world, in one sense its amazing I've hung in so long (but that is a long and complicated story).

I plan to be attending teachers college in 2011 - I want to be there now, but our finances won't allow for this....I must be patient. Oh well, "they" say good things come to those who wait...although they also say he who hesitates is lost......so I guess I'll just have to chart my own path (much more fun anyway).

Keep well out there,

Sending love and wishing for all the good things,

P.S. It's just a box of rain I don't know who put it there;
Believe it if you need it, or leave it if you dare.
And it's just a box of rain or a ribbon for your hair.
Such a long, long time to be gone and a short time to be there.

C'est génial!!!

Wow, Richard - c'est génial! Comment ça se fait que tu as pu arranger une telle métamorphose du décor? J'aurai aimé voir cela!

Je viens tout récemment de NYC!! J'ai entendu chanter mon frère au consul français - première de "La Maison d'Usher" de Poe, musique et libretto par Debussy. C'était fantastique! En plus, je suis allée entendre Brett Dennen et Grace Potter, où j'ai rencontré deux Deadhead tapers. Ils m'ont raconté les bonnes nouvelles: Furthur vient à Buffalo! Et peut-être on se rendrai à Ithaca dimanche soir, car le lendemain c'est Family Day. Youpie!

J'espère que tout le monde ici a de la chance à voyager pour au moins un de ces spectacles. J'ai hâte de vous rencontrer.

Gros sourires,

Kirsten

Salut, je suis de retour à l'Opéra. De ce temps-ci, c'est "La Flûte Enchantée", dans un décor de l'Opéra de San Francisco. Il y a maintenant un éclair à 13 pointes dessiné à l'arrière du décor. Mtl DeadHead style.
A bientôt, Richard.

Salut les amis!

Greetings Can-head friends, old and new...

I miss reading of your whereabouts and I'm glad some new folk have dropped by this page.

Is anyone heading out to NY for the Furthur shows? (Not me this time)

poetprince: when in Toronto, look up the Caution Jam. There's lots of good music in the city, but that band is particularly Dead-icated. Say hi to the guitarist, Eric, and tell him Kirsten sent you. =) How long are you around?

Richard & Playing in the Tower with Eyes on Fire in El Paso with a Cat:
J'espere que ca va bien, les camarades. I really hope things are super fine with you both. I am teaching full-time (good) but my contract will end soon (also good). I'm looking forward to a bit of breathing space and freedom for music and thinking and such. Hope your fall was as rich and warm as mine! See you soon in e-dead land...

A bientot,

K

Hi out there!

Hi Richard and all,

Just saying hi. Wish we had a GD cover band around I could use a night out like that. Oh well, hopefully the boys will be back next spring!

Lately been having fun jamming out Fire on the Mountain and Goin' Down the Road Feelin' Bad and Friend of the Devil. Come to think of it I could be in a GD cover band. Maybe further on down the road.............we are also playing Superstition, Jumping Jack Flash, Take Me to The River, Cinnamon Girl and the Weight (ahhh the Weight).....

Keep smiling friendly folk.

Peace,

Playing in the Tower with Eyes on Fire in El Paso with a Cat

P.S. thanks Longrifle for the name of that cover band "Dustcover". I'll see if I can find them on the web. I hope they tour out this way. :)
