That is so funny. Almost posted this the day before yesterday.

Daisy and I are soul twins on some level - we both met when simultaneously searching for a single stanza to a Robert Hunter poem - forgive those lifelong suicides. What are the chances of that, Mr. Jung?

Thank you so much for the links. My pleasure on the banner, there is a touch of Dark Star there.

Speaking of which, Dead Air was the name of the first popular northern california dead cover band in the late 1970's.

Daisy, are you tempted to drop your anonymity? I can understand your reluctance, you manage to surround yourself with tumult and ire on occasion but that's good. Has never been a problem for me but no pictures of home, etc.

best,

Robert

BH, my local Facebook friends all know me and frequently use my legal name on FB, so I have only a *thin film* of anonymity as it is. I used the name "Agnes Waterhouse" in my youth (promoting rock shows) and that whole crowd has now caught up to me... and then I had two other married surnames (besides my current one), so there are people who knew me under a variety of names. I feel like I am finally getting all these people together under ONE name at last!

I dunno if you're on Facebook, but if so, friend me... I have put photos of my family and where I live, etc.. in fact, I have probably shared way too much there.

BTW, you might enjoy Phil Lesh's book SEARCHING FOR THE SOUND, which talks about the the many Jungian 'coincidences' in Robert Hunter's life... it is just like you and me. :) Jerry stuck a poem by RH in his guitar case, and then found it and used it for lyrics. He wrote him and said "Need more", and RH sent more. Next thing you know, he is living in Jerry's house. And the rest is history.

A life filled with serendipity, and it is so nice to follow his example.

I was going to make a comment about the new masthead too. It looks great!

I don't Facebook but my wife Leslie Sommers does and I can look over her shoulder. Will you friend her? I think that you will like her stuff. Are you up as Daisy Deadhead?

BH, yes I am--and I will look her up!
