    Jorma – Karen Schneider here, Andrew Schneider’s mom. We live 20 minutes from Springfield, Missouri and I am so sorry we weren’t able to come out and see you last night at Hammons Hall. I hope the show went well. I feel bad that you are driving away without getting another batch of my special, healthy chocolate chip cookies.

    Andrew is out in LA. He will finish his Master’s in Teaching Music at USC at the end of June, but even more exciting is that his new band, THE LONELY WILD has just released their first vinyl indie album called “Dead End”. They’ve gotten rave reviews. Andrew is playing lead guitar. Check them out at http://www.thelonelywild.com
    Andrew is also on Facebook and Twitter etc……

    Enjoyed reading Vanessa’s blog, (for some reason I couldn’t get your’s to come up), so pleased to hear that things are well with your family – lovely daughter – life is good. I also read the New York Times review of your new vinyl – old Jefferson Airplane live pieces. It was a great write-up.

    Safe travels as your traverse the country. In his 1947 book, Folk Song USA, John Lomax wrote, “A people made a three-thousand-mile march between the eastern and western oceans. Songs traveled with them; songs were born along the way.” p.vii – As you continue your march from the eastern to the western ocean, I hope a few new riffs or tunes are born along your way.

    You are a large part of why Andrew is where he is now. The Fur Peace summers were wonderful for him but particularly I remember the show in Columbia, Missouri the summer of 2003 when I was so sick with cancer and we drove up to see you. We stayed late into the night and you listened to Andrew play after the show and you told him to stay in school. You should have sent me a bill for those words, I would have paid a King’s ransom! He was listening.

    I recently heard an interesting description of old age – “to be in the Finland of one’s life.” I am not implying that you are in your years of dotage – far from it! I just thought of you and felt it was a very lovely thought indeed. Safe passage – Fondly, Karen

    I have been reading your posts for quite a while now, and none of them are “boring”. Just my observation.
