Reflections From Home

Here’s a beautiful little farm on the road from Hillside Farm to the Fur Peace Ranch.

More of that beautiful farm.

A beautiful country church on the way.

Well, I’ve been home since Sunday and enjoying every minute of it. Tomorrow I’m taking a little motorcycle trip to Akron for Founders Day. Thousands of like minded people will be relating to each other in a way that only those of us who have been through the fire can do. It’s supposed to rain, but hey, that’s why they made rain suits. Indeed, it is truly all good.

It may be still officially Spring, but temperature wise, it’s Summer for sure. I’ve got a few more things to do to my bike to get it ready so more will be announced anon.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot. Hot Tuna defies gravity and moves back up the Americana Charts after dropping one point last week. And they say it couldn’t be done!!!! Let’s let everyone know so we can get this in the top 3. Call your local stations and ask for any song to be played off of Steady As She Goes. Thanks everyone

    I agree with Richard – such beautiful country up there in Ohio. I love the beach but I love the country so much more. I think it’s because of the altitude, you’re a little closer to heaven.

    I have a son that is in the fire. I pray he finds sobriety. Jorma, you give me hope.

    Thanks

    Up at forty celsius below, between the tough frosty rocks, “Steady As She Goes” is a shining inner Sun. Every moment and every time, day-to-day “Steady” is a new Celestial susurration, can’t wait to catch on to the next ennoblin’ note, we play it inside and the truth of “Steady” brings out the live thrill makin’ it match with the affinities when there. It’s a Super musical Galaxy on its own. It needs a very attentive audition in order to be able to appreciate in toto the majestic work involved, not to say about where the music leads you, and as usual the unbelievable beauty of the worlds visited, naturally this is the musical side, the B side which is the work plus skill put together to achieve such results, well this hidden side writes a compulsory note on our agenda, both sides of this CD are ‘Unbeatable’! Jorma’s Music and Singing seals in our souls more hot Stuff than one could reasonably expect, by listening and listening by rocking and thinking we get the one reason to these ‘vanishing days’. Europeans always have to find a deep eloquent meaning towards what happens, the Greek influence etc., and I recognize myself in it, whereas Americans on top of all that, draw a line of silent work inherent to the item, and that makes the difference, and in that I recognize myself too, more in the mythical pavilion though. That’s why “Steady As She Goes” makes us rock in & out, a pure stream of Rock dressed Life and Light appears in a simple room by the mean of a blessed CD. That’s American, that’s “Steady As She Goes”! Strong Spirit in strong long muscles and “Steady Brains”, Thanks G-d! Thanks Jorma for this gigantic source of Rock Legacy, every moment of it is a fantastic moment to be thankful for. And as we say: “Not only Rock”! Love and due respect.

    Unfortunately Bob, your son will have too see the light for himself, suggestions and praying is about all you can do. I spent 30 years in the fire, and have found peace at last. I only wish it hadn’t taken so long. There are a lot of good people out there,like minded that can help. Peace , Bake

    Thanks Blake, My son had found sobriety for a few years and we thought his days of using were behind us. He is 31 yrs. old and has unfortunetly relapsed. We were devastated when we found out, but have been through this before and know that there isn’t anything we can do. He has been to rehabs previously, so he has the tools to find sobriety. He really bought into A.A. for quiet sometime but things have changed. I can’t thank you enough for responding, and it gives me hope that our son will once again find sobriety. Thanks, Bob

    Beautiful country, indeed. And so is Martha’s Vineyard. Have a good show, Jorma, on 6/15! I was there the first time in 1982. I just read your interview in this week’s Martha’s Vineyard Times, and you recall it quite well. Perhaps you’ll remember the young man who was howling like a hound during Police Dog Blues while the Hot Tin Roof dinner patrons were munching their lobsters…I certainly do, and I met him again later that summer in NJ at your show at Big Man’s West…he was none other than the late, great Harvey Kolman, and we became friends for many years.

    Try to keep the faith and continue the message. I hope and pray he gets back to the Land of the Living. It takes time, is not an exact science. I am a social worker in the field of psychiatry, if I can ever assist feel free to contact me, best.
    Thanks to the band for another stellar performance. I think Jack should always march up to the stage…
