    I miss new PJ music, most especially Ed's lyrics. They are food for my soul.
    Patiently waiting I am.

    Just let me known to be
    In search of the truth myself
    There is a drop of blood on the ground
    And it seems to me that it's not my kind
    And I can't be sure if its yours or mine."

    My Mom, friends who have died, my health, my original '65 Fender DeLuxe Reverb amp, too many great musicians that have moved on too soon, analog radio, affordable vinyl, clean air and a whole string of cats, dogs, and my toad, Toady.

    Just the thread I need for the depressed mood I'm in. :lol:

    .
    Will be 3 years later this month and I am so thankful for what an awesome guy he was and how tight we were for the last 20 years or so of our time together.
    So many stories - but what I think about this morning is that I woke up at 3:30 with something on my mind. I could not shake it and ended up rolling out of the rack at 4:00 to start working on resolving the issue that was occupying my sleep time.

    Reading your post made me instantly think of the last words spoken to me by my father - it was by phone from across the country and he disagreed with a position I took on a totally insignificant thing we were discussing....and he ultimately acquiesced. He closed our conversation with 'You are xxxx xxxxxxx and you are the son I raised to know what is right...and you are right. You are xxxxx and you always seem to figure out the right thing to do.'
    We ended the calls with the normal 'I love yous' that end a call between a dying father and his son but it is days like today where I feel like I really know the right thing to do after giving it lots of thought.
    Today, it was the right thing to do to get out of bed and solve the issue (however small overall) that was keeping me awake. It is done and I believe it was the right thing to do and that I will sleep fine tonight.

    Those parting words by my dad seem to always make me feel like it is the right choice. (And it is worth mentioning that, as everyone does, I am frequently tempted to make a clearly wrong decision and these words tend to nudge me back in the right direction so that they became a guiding directive that makes me a better man as well as a great compliment.)

    Sorry, got me rambling there but your question sort of 'fit' my morning.

    F Me - That brought tears to my eyes, it’s nice that your father’s last words still guide you in life today, isn’t that what fathers are for? I’d say he did his job nicely.


    Aye, I’m doing well. Again, it’s nice to see you here.

    Pandora – you’re not kidding, PJ get your act together and put out some new music, don’t you know how much and how many people DEPEND on that for their sanity?? Seriously. :x

    Thanks, I am at peace with his absence but it is the good fortune to have had such a great role model that makes me feel so lucky and hopeful that others have/had/get to have the same experience. (Reading the news these days makes me wonder...)

    I would say I miss both my parents. My dad died almost 18 years ago and my mom died almost 3 years ago.

    I think about them alot. its was a great love story. They met in Portugal but then my dad left with the army but they kept writing each other and when the army thing was done they got married and moved to Canada.

    I can't imagine a better couple (without insulting anyone else here) the saddest part is that my mom died on my dad birthday but in a strange way i just think that it was quite romantic and keep thing that if there is another place people go to after they died my dad got the best birthday present.

    Same boat as you on both counts. Losing my dad as a blessing in my everyday life lessens that blessing not at all...he and his guidance are always with me (as was, I think, his goal for my sister and me).

    I guess I miss the intangibles, the things tied to the senses, and to memories. Times I wish I'd appreciated more, when living them. But then I was young and dumb ;)

    Certain scents, the ones that my nose gets a glimpse of and nostalgia hits big time. Wood burning, summer evenings in the city, the fur of our childhood dog, styrofoam burning (don't ask!).

    It's bittersweet; more sweet than bitter, actually. (reminds me of Floyd - "breathe, breathe in the air - don't be afraid to care". I wish I hadn't been, then.)

    Anyway - hello, Aye!

    Nice thread here.
    For every mistake, we must surely be learning.
