New Years 2013- Hank Williams- Venice- Yoko Ono-

Wish Tree-Guggenheim Venice Feb 20 2011


50 years ago tonight Hank Williams died in the back of a Cadillac heading to a gig. He was 29 years old. Some years ago there was a play Called Hank Williams: The Show he never gave. In it Hank says ” I for one won’t be to sad to see 1952 end”

Well I feel the same way about 2012. Om a Personal level it’s been one for the dross heap of hellish years. Bon Debarras 2012-
Almost two years ago, Feb 20 2011 I found myself in the Guggenheim in Venice with a whiskey Hangover of Caledonian proportions. I scurried through a rather twee exhibit on Uncle Ezra and the Vorticists. Going outside f or air and a smoke I found myself next
to to Yoko Ono’s Wish Tree
I wrote the wish you see in photo above.
That wish still is in my heart and soul.
Both Hank and Yoko have given to world, and each has paid a price.
But ya know ain’t nothing should stop us
from trying to make things a little better for each other.
Campbell here is staring 60 in the face
and doesn’t like what he sees.
BUT all we have to do in this world is make each other feel better about ourselves.
We’re all we got-
All the social media in the world don’t come close to a kind word,
a phone call, a present for no reason, without a quid pro quo.
I’m dashing this off in cold cold snowy Montreal.
I’ll be spending the new year alone as I feel mal a l’aise with world these days.
Anomie of the soul.
I hope we all make it to 2013 safe and sound
but to those of you who read this tosh
I just want to say it’s a world of wonder
that hits ya down 99% of the time.
Sometimes we don’t get back up.
But if we do
we can never let ourselves
get bitter or hard of heart
That’s how evil wins-
Love is all there is of any value.
It ain’t always easy and there ain’t no reward per se.
Let’s Honour Hank’s short life by
Staying alive- A fitting Tribute to a man who Had a radio show called
The Health & Happiness Hour
Hank never had much of either
and I personally thank Yoko Ono
for that wish tree.
She never got bitter
I recently heard her define love as
“Being Relaxed with someone”
Sounds good to me

Love to you all
Campbell

    As it turns out i didn’t spend it alone but had night of va et vien not unlike scrooge when he is visited by ghosts. Michmerc came by unexpectedly and we rewound a year. The only thing Everyone agrees on is that the Swimming in Montauk was great. Luckily no one reads these comments. Oh yeah my ghost thing tells me to get stuff done
