Twenty Sixth evening With Cami

Indeed time marches on at it’s own pace whether we like it or not. Our good friend Jim Lauderdale‘s Mom passed yesterday and our prayers are with Jim and his family.

In Many Houses

In many houses
all at once
I see my mother and father
and they are young as they walk in

Why should my
tears come,
to see them laughing

That they cannot
see me
is of no matter:

I was once
their dream:
they are mine.

I have quoted this little poem many times since I discovered it and for better or worse, there just is no better way to describe the passing of a parent.

If all goes well, we will see Jim again at the Marin Civic Center. Be well brother!

    Sorry for your loss Jim. I bet Jim heard the “Death Dont” opener all the way from home.

    Jim is a great guy. We’re sorry to hear about his Mom, it’s a good thing he left the tour to be with her.

    That’s one fine little poem, Jorma. It kinda hits me in a where I live, as my own Mom is having a very tough time right now. Any idea who the author is?

    Sorry to hear about Jim’s Mom
    I know the feeling.
    And GE Smith’s family matter, hope he’s all right.
    I enjoyed the show last nite. I’m getting old, I need a seat,I’m sore today, from standing. the belly up would be nice, if there were seats , folding chairs , something, My knees and back are sore today. And I’m 12 years younger than Jorma.
    If they come again I will go. Glad Jorma checked out San Diego’s USS Midway Museum.

    That short poem says so much—I lost my first parent in August 2009 (my dad). I don’t know Jim, but I am sorry for his loss. It is one of those inevitabilities that we think won’t come—because after all, our parents have always been there.
