Myron and I blasted off for the left coast on Friday and my travel garment commemorated Izze’s Irish Dance World. Who needs River Dance when you’ve got the Athens Irish Dancers?
Getting into SF we checked into an airport hotel… this was just going to be an in and out trip. Even though we had to fight traffic to get into town Friday afternoon… it was off to Mifune in the Kintetsu Center.
Our gig with Marsha Ball and Taj Mahal was Saturday evening in Rohnert Park… not quite to Santa Rosa. Not very far, but thanks to NOCAL traffic, it took almost three hours to go 65 miles. California is beautiful, I’m glad I live in rural America today. Just sayin’!
Anyway… once at the gig in Sonoma State… we had more than a wonderful time!
Our buddy from Israel, Yair Dalal... was in town with his daughters and it was great hanging with them.

Got to hang with Taj a little bit… and chewed the fat with Marsha Ball.
Then it was back to the airport hotel…
The IM meditation went well… everything worked at the airport counter to my paranoiac tendencies. In the airport I saw a Kiehl’s Pharmacy.
Jack and I had the honor of getting to know Aaron Morse back in the 60’s. He was an amazing man… I wish I had kept up my friendship with him…
Friends I could count on
I could count on one hand
With a left over finger or two.
I took them for granted,
Let them all slip away,
Now where they are I wish I knew.
Knee Deep In A River (Dying Of Thirst)
Don Williams lyrics
And so it goes… Great to be home! Really great!
