My Uncle Art died this morning. i woke up in a panic at about 5 a.m. and rushed to his bedside to check on him and found that he had passed in his sleep. caring for him these last three weeks has been one of the hardest experiences of my life. watching someone you love so much deteriorate and die right in front of you is hard as hell. on one hand i am heartbroken and sad… and at the same time i feel such a huge sense of relief because i know he is no longer suffering. anyhow… i just wanted to update you all and let you know where i am at… i’ve been so strong through all of this… but now i just feel like a mess inside… but that’s okay… it’s part of the healing process… i’ll get through this… i always do.
so i just wanted to make a quick post to let you all know what is going on with me and why i have not been around much lately…
a few weeks ago i made a post and shared the sad news about my favorite Uncle having terminal lung cancer… well since that post there have been some major changes in my life. after some long talks with my family and some serious thinking i decided to leave Arizona for a while and head out to San Diego to care for my Uncle until he dies. this is a very hard time for me and my family right now… death is never an easy thing… especially when it is someone whom you love very much. as you can imagine i have a lot on my plate right now… so for now my presence here on tumblr may not not be as frequent as it was before… but for now tending to my family and being with them during this difficult time is what i know in my heart is right and where i need to be. but no worries… i will be back after all this is over. thank you all for understanding and for all the support you guys have given me through all of this. i love you guys!!

Languid, surly, snarling and all in the right amounts here! One of the best Blues covers ever — I am prone to hyper-bowl ‘cause I saw them do this one live and the place smoldered with Keith and Brian nailing it! So for that memory alone and long with some other’s of the Eel Pie Island days…..this is the Monday Got The Blues selection from the Flimwell Papers’ Music Corner. Peace, love and happy togs, y’all!
