after long nights’ sleep

bear wakes in darkness of den

hungry for daylight

  1. It’s March 7 – Townes Van Zandt’s birthday. He’d be 75 if still alive. Each year on this date, I attend a gathering of musicians who one by one sing one of Townes’s songs and/or their own song written as tribute to Townes. So … feels a bit like a year of slumbering in the dark, then tonight we fans awake to the light of Townes (tho unlike the bear, our awake will be brief).
