"Past the stars in fields of ancient void
Through the shields of darkness where they find
Love upon a land a world unknown
Where the sons of freedom make their home"
*When I think of my East Boston teenage friends, I think of our gang - a co-operative whole comprised of a cast of characters that I affectionately call The Usual Suspects in hundreds of stories I have recalled to you over the years - most of them true!
I got the call this week that John "Bubba" DiGirolamo passed. I've lost my parents, family members and friends - so I've dealt with the shock of death, but this was different.
It did not matter that I have not talked to most of them as much as I should - as I much as I could. They are still all a part of who I was and who I became - I love them all.
If it were a Steven Kingish movie, we all would
have shared the same dream or vision
and each would have had a task to accomplish.
In my case - I always get to bring the music.
The Sabbath is for you, Bubba.

*When planning the session, I pondered 'What would be an appropriately cool theme for this high-anxiety moment in history?'. The answer was obviously hidden in the question.

Keep a cool head because cool heads prevail!
