Piano Pete Performs for Annie @ Banyan Tree House

Underwater Camera @ Ulua Beach, Maui Hawaii

I shot this with Annie's Lumix 12MB camera with an underwater bag for protection that cost $20! Can't beat that price to get into high quality underwater imaging.

Awesome Post Tsunami Rainbow on Maui, Hawaii

Probably had nothing to do with Tsunami in Chile, but the next day, Feb 28, 2010 was the most amazing rainbow that stayed in the sky for the longest time, blessing everyone on the Mokulele Highway and in Kihei.

When Autumn Leaves Begin To Fall - Peter @ the Piano

A very impromptu command performance for my mother and best friend on my sisters Piano! Not bad for making it up on the spot from memories of too long ago to remember!? LOL

Getting more current, its been a real treat to have Annie with me on Maui. I have never had the experience of waking and going to sleep with someone on a very regular basis, and being with them almost 24/7, for weeks on end! I have turned a corner in my ability to love women (but not without rough edges). We went whale watching again for $10 each, Kama'Aina.

1968 Clelia "Claire" from years ago makes contact!

1968 Clelia "Claire" from Days of Steve RosenZweig

File this in the "Do you believe it," dept! I got a message from Facebook that my first girlfriend from some 40 years ago has surfaced and sought me out!

Her message finds me, for the first time in 30 years, living with someone!! that I feel so at peace with - that I need not look any further. This after searching for the "perfect one" for so, so long... only to realize that she wasn't appearing because *I had to be ready myself* (lose the hard, isolating edges), before a true love would appear.

I consider myself very lucky - both because I have finally found someone and because the internet connects me with so many friends, teachers and mentors from my past, people like Clelia! We'd gone thru **a lot** together! I'm glad she made contact and look forward to hearing her tales.

I remember the day I threw away the "going steady" ring I gave her: when she told me she loved the beatles, more than me! LOL ...PS I also remember the first time I was in bed with her as we heard the door open to her house, meaning her parents had come home unexpectedly early! LOL

How I met Annie

We met just before my mom's 90th birthday on Sept 25 and dated for a month before she left for a return (after 30 years visit) to her
vietnam homeland.

During that month we video chatted while she travelled. My cyber-pitching woo via iChat and Skype worked its magic (not to mention our great connection before she left when she thought I would be returning to Maui).

But as fate would have it, mom got sick. I had to stick around for an extra month while Annie travelled. Suddenly I realized if I go back to Maui, I would be alone for Thanksgiving and the Xmas holidays. It didn't make sense given what I was feeling - being with Annie.

I hadn't slept with anyone for 6 years (and that was only a two week affair), nor have I tasted relationship for the last 12 years. The last time I lived with anyone was in 1976 - only for a year.

So when I asked Anne (via video conference) if I could stay at her place for the holidays before going back to Maui, she took a big risk
and said YES. I gave her a royal tantric welcome home after picking her up from the airport -- in my mom's junked up car. We've been living together ever since.

Xmas was our third month anniversary since our meeting 9.25. I am
taking her to Maui to taste the waters there and introduce her to my friends, show her some of the other islands, and then fly back to SF to be with her kids for 6 days before returning to NJ.

Its' so great to have a sudden new home and life with a most wonderfully loving woman, and be close to my mom in her closing years at the same time. God has outdone herself once again with this arrangement! And thats just the beginning. What binds us is how well our interests, economics and persona's intersect in passions, thoughts and style of being.

Moms surgery a Big Success!

Mom's hse=blue
Hospital= green
Sis hse= red

I asked her for a ride home since mom was several hrs away from full
awareness. I wanted to not drive two cars only to return w 2 cars. But
Lynn refused saying it was too far. Chech da map! Mom's is
right up the block, drive your own car she snottily delivered!

Oh well. At least MOM IS OUT OF THE THREAT OF STROKE for the moment. She has to make some real tough decisions about changing her eating habits. No small challenge there.

I've been having a great time with New Friend but...

A horrible time with my iPhone 3GS that keeps freezing on me. I make
screen captures when I can unless it locks up too badly, now at about
the rate of three times a day depending on how many apps I am
twiddling. It seems the problem always involves keyboard input. Does
anyone else have a similar issue?

First Date with Annie: Peter Yarrow Concert in Ridgefield, CT

It turns out "Ridgefield" as a city name, has yielded several gold
mines for me as Annie and I met in Ridgefield Park, NJ and now off to
see Peter Yarrow in Ridgefield, Connecticut!

Peter Yarrow and I go way back to the Songwriters Resources and
Services 1978 Songwriter Awards Ceremony for which I was photographer
and Mr. Yarrow was MC. We sat next to each other that day; and so
was the beginning of our friendship. I would later chronicle Peter's
performances at the Survival Sunday Anti-Nuclear Concerts at the
Hollywood Bowl circa 1978-1982 thanks to his getting me a backstage
pass. My documentation included travel to NYC in 1982 for the, Peter,
Paul and Mary concert part of the 1982 Peace Rally both at the UN and
in Central Park during a Concert for which I was again backstage
thanks to Peter Yarrow.

Last night I took Annie out on our "first date" to see Peter, whom I
hadn't seen since a visit circa 2002 to his NYC apartment. I asked
him to sign my guitar. Not only did he, but he also signed my right
hand with his private phone number and email. We made a pact to get
together since my stay will now be extended to accommodate mom's
pending operation.

He was so inspiring. I was taken by his low vocal tones and resonant
personality. He had written a bunch of new songs, reprised Puff the
Magic Dragon and played old folk songs like "Once I lived the Life of
a Millionaire (Ain't Nobody Love's You)" and Stewball. The audience
sang along with many of the songs we love to sing ending with Blowing
In the Wind; which he dedicated to Mary - testifying that there will
never be a replacement. It was truly the end of an era... (and
therefore the beginning of a new one).

Thats how I feel too; given the discovery of Annie; my new friend and
Rocks to DNA beauty queen model. She grabbed some great shots of
Peter signing my guitar and this one of "Brother's Peter." I will
have to post some of the other shots (I photographed the concert) up
to share with you.

I have so much to be thankful for and to cherish. Once mom gets thru
her operation, I will truly feel like new beginnings have blessed me/
us. I celebrate! Here Here! A toast to new beginnings and the
happiest of times! Oh Joy!
