Today in Edward History – The Best Day in My Life!

i thank You God for most this amazing
day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes

Thirty-seven years ago was that most amazing day that I’ve thank God for forever, because on August 23, 1975 Kathleen Anne Clarke and I were married! And after 37 years I still love her and she is still my best friend. She’s given me four wonderful children and has been my rock through everything! Yesterday I was lamenting that I never became a teacher, but there’s no laments when it comes to marrying Kathy, I don’t even want to image a life without her!! read more

In a book and a funky hat
On the road with Kerouac
Searching for the truth

Sometimes I’m amazed
Looking back at a certain phase
Wet my thumb and I turn the page
Oh, what was I trying to prove? read more

Into the Night with Gary Stroutsos and his Native American flute!

It came from an artist that I have never heard before Gary Stroutsos and his 2011 release Inside Tutka Bay and I am a fan! Additionally I have a lot of catching up to do because his career started with Native American music in 1994 when he moved from Washington to North Dakota and includes a gazillion albums! read more
