thinking of steam engies,those giants of the tracks;huge and covered in soot.
"time runs like a freight train"...a line from a song,a long time of track extending thru mountains, over bridges and thru cities in the dead of night.

rest in peace, levon helm

it was with much sadness that i read of the death of levon helm of the band. everything i ever saw or read about levon helm was positive. he appears to have been a real good guy.
i'm convinced there's a special place in heaven for the music makers. levon is there now, along with bandmates rick danko and richard manuel.   i hope they are playing up a storm.
