Alana Gilmore Remembered

Alana succumbed to cancer while I was away. In fact in was Nov 19th,
exactly two months from when this photo was captured. The day of my Nephew's Bar Mitzvah and the first morning frost of the back East winter season. It was just before leaving for my two months of travel, that I recorded this image of her at Bonnie's B'Day bash on the beach. Little did I know it would be the last time we'd be physically together.

I remember last summer she came over for my Thursday night sing and jam. She loved sing with me and the gang. She got to my place early. Just the two of us were vocalizing to my two chord on the Keyboard improv. Our voices soared and swirled in harmony and intensity, shifting in response to the rich textures of my chords; lifting us higher and higher into exalted spaces - I have never before tasted or heard. The sound of our souls, united in mutual understanding of beings trapped in a pain challenged body. We liberated the most cherished of connections with spirit sailing high in song. We were transported by the melody and harmonies that weaved between us; cementing that moment as one of the most high I have ever experienced in all my music making, ever!

He drove off the road I heard during my journey. It must have been his time to get higher. I took this photograph during my presentation last May (2005) at Lori Grace's place in Marin. She had sponsored my trip to share who I am and to entertain Lori's board. You can feel the love and support emanating from Larry's soul. I love this photo of him. I didn't know him well. But his look says a lot about his openheartedness. As I was presenting, in front of a critical audience, his loving continence was what reminded me that I am amongst friends who want the best for me. Probably everyone else in the room did too, but as I was trying to share my world, point of view and life's work, others just wanted to have a good time. It became obvious they weren't interested in the history of my projects and milestones along the path to Creativity Cafe. I will miss this dear brother.
