Last night I went to see Janis at the Loft. I did hear her at the Family Dog in Denver. I had a blind date with her in circa 1970 at a retreat outside Taos, N.M. but she never got there. One night around the same time I was having a drink at a bar I never drank at (in Taos) and the emcee saidthat a young singer would like to sing a song he had written. It was Kris Kristofferson and he sang "Me and Bobby McGee".
I added a bird to my life...a sand crane.
I try and cook as much as I can at home. even if its cold. (I stopped using my fireplace because it doesn't draw well and my asthma kicks up).
The view from my kitchen out...

To the right of my main door

This cold morning while Gail was at the gym I was able to photo capture her strange boird that pecks at her window (lower left corner)

Its been a good year though a bit rough with little money and big kidney stone operation. Plenty to be thankful for.Why not peace instead of hate. Why not meditation instead of bullets. Why not be open to every way of life. Why not embrace understanding.
I have (I bet) the largest collection of photo stills of softcore porn from the 1960's. Here is a photo from the set of "Girls Rough House" 1971.
