Dec 24 1975 and I was just back from working in iron mine 800 mile North of Montreal. I was down at the corner buying wine. Santa was on the radio taking calls- Most kids were telling him what they wanted, but all of s sudden ,out of nowhere, there was a call. It was a young boy or girl. Santa asked teh child what he or she wanted to say-
“Santa, I just want to say I love you”- Never in the history of humanity has there been purer or truer love. I weep freely as I write an remember. Two years ago Feb 7 2011, in the piney woods in sun mist valleys in behind cookie cutter town Trieste, Iwept as freely when 24k told me she kept her son apprised as to Santa being real.
Dear Friends, above you see two photos. The first is the church in Glencoe, Ontario, where now 7 generations of my ain folk have worshipped. The second photo is maternal home where many a christmas was merry as a grig until…
Well it’s been a hellish year here, save for one wondrous night on my balcony in Toronto and another sweet almost autumn whiskey ramble in Northampton Mass. ( They Have a bust of Silent Cal there). Me and naan were outside of Fitswilly’s smoking Players and sipping Lagavullin. It was heartening to know that naan felt the same as I – We don’t think of k as gone – I talk to her all the time. This is poorly writ and I have blues almost unto fade to black. But I’m here to tell you that Santa is real. In some other thing recently I tweely wrote that one hears that God is Love- No-
Love is God and love is good. You want to see a good loving person ? Hang outside of Burns of a Sunday and see my Cousin Louise Campbell. She lives in same house built 150 years ago by my great great grandfather. I’m an old fool kind but so flawed. And I tell you ever since my family.. well I miss ’em . So wherever you are whoever you are I’m here to tell you that Santa trumps satan into eternity.We all will be together ,if the fates allow.
all my love to each of you and remember that child who told Santa that he loved him-
A Child Shall lead them
May you be midst friends family and love

America Election tomorrow- This,too, shall pass

Campaigns Past & Passed

Doonesbury and Memorry



Tomorrow a President will be elected.
Read Doonesbury above- it’s real no memry no mo’
America has fallen for this politics of division for too long
The power rests in Legislative branch which
Has no warp and weft give and take of yore
What we have in common is greater than that which we don’t
Too much doctrine and not enough Principle
Obama will be re-elected
by Ohio !
I have been to Ohio
Il n’y a rien la
If any Yankees read this and want to scarper up here
C’mon up
November is no Month to do anything
involving decision
It’s a white knuckle month

Rufus Montreal Oct 26- 2012-Beyond Words-

October 27, 2012



it’s 4.12 in a.m here but have been trying upload pix one hour.
I have seen and know an awful lot bout music
But Rufus’s show tonight was sans pareil-
I went bec. i was comped and hoped to hang later w/
Musicians.
BUT
The show was out of this world
3 and a half hurs of seamless magic void of egos
1600 people mesmerised in a giant old Québec church
Tho’ I wrote first part after getting back
from wine soaked get together
I’m now awake and sober and I can truly say that show was unbelievable
If James Brown were alive
He would have to cede
his moniker of
The Hardest Working Man in Show business to Rufus
This tour is coming to an end
and those of you who have seen it will know what I mean
Mother of God, that was one for the ages

Well we got though it. It was a little bit of magic in Montauk.

Erratum-
Martha Sang How Deep is the Ocean ? not How High the Moon? . The Former was transcribed for Irving Berlin at What is Now R & J’s House.

August 22, 2012

Lousy Internet here so brevity is key.I run into old friends all over this strange place. Last night I had migraine for 1st time in years. Tonight I saw Ursa Minor Big Dipper and other stars that aren’t transient. It’s Gonna be something. I dunno what . Naan et alia aredown at big do at giant estate. I had dinner where the post meal reception’ll be. The sea that big old rolling ocean pounds like a heartbeat outside my ramshackle door. The Night is loaded with darkness a darkness I haven’t seen since 37 year ago Nouveau Québec mine time.Well folk’s I’m gonna have to hole off on any more bec this net is too damn slow. I have put ink pen to work aping kerouac in big sure but i came up with words of sound no whooosh of kerouac. I have no e mail right now so love to all of you from an idiot rambling lopsided through a world growing younger by the day
