From the Gate... Hawaii is in the distance...

Last night Barry and I played the Swedish-American Hall on Market St. in San Francisco. The last time I was here, it was to have Smorgasbord with my ex-wife… (May she rest in peace)… The late 60’s or early 70’s I would say. Well… this was a first time for us and Barry Mitterhoff and I had a great time.

We are staying at the hotel we were at with Jack Casady and his lovely wife Diana… the last days of the Hot Tuna Summer Tour. We knew that Diana was nearing the end of her journey… that it was time for her to start her final journey home. I was able to say hello and goodbye to her on the morning of that last Sweetwater gig in late July. It would be the last time I would see her this side of the vale. Bittersweet memories here in Corte Madera.

Gone but not forgotten... always...

Gone but not forgotten... always...

Rest well sister… you’ll be happy to know we’re still on the road…

    Amen Jorma and Amen. Can you tell Jack I’m thinking of him and can’t wait to you all at the Beacon.

    Förberedelse för strid? Död före vanära? Vad är det med dig psykiskt sjuka kaukasiska pojkar? Barry är från Scotch Plains så han ursäktas.

    Dear Jorma,

    Lovely bittersweet memories. Pls give Jack my very best. My Grandmother, (may God rest her soul) used to always tell me in times of trouble and sadness, that “Better days are coming”. Those words were always a comfort to me.

    Stay well,

    Very poignant, Jorma. She is greatly missed.
