@mezzie,
Aww, I loved that, thank you for the link, a save. It reminded me, oddly of course, of a mix of some of my favorite italian songwriter pieces mixed with Jon Wilcox music (from santa barbara- he's part of Marley's Ghost). That Cav liked the song and performed it, the better.

Oh, and I cried.. I still do that.

ok, cav

a joke's a joke, but really!

it snowed the day you left

it snowed when we drove north with you

now, Gautam is on his way to say goodbye - and it's going to snow again

Shocked



it's been six years - and the snow plows woke me up three times in the early early morning

I should have expected it

This is one of my favorite poems that he wrote and also one of his last.

HOARFROST

Fresh falling snow,
each flake unique.

Those lucky
to cling to branches
join the elite order
of hoarfrost,

laughing at their brethren
below, trampled, shoveled,
driven over,
broken down,
salted
(what are we, caviar?)
until each individual
is crushed
into an unreconizable
brown slush.

An unexpected warm day
proves the equalizer.



our friend, the snow man

7 years since we drove north with cav, and a big thundering snowstorm is promised

I can't say I'm surprised
