Bruce Gora passed away yesterday from cancer at the all too young age of 58. I can’t recall when we first met, but I can recall many memories of my time with Bruce, either at lunch, at an art event or listening to him play with the Juice Band. The below video is a great tribute to Bruce’s life, and will give you a sense of the man so many have enjoyed from having been touched by him in their lives. I will miss him.

My friend Richard Jackson sent me this YouTube link this morning and given I had just been in New Orleans, it did strike a personal cord with me. Great tune, done by street musicians from all over the World and very well edited. Definately worth the post and the time to view.

View Larger Map
Fort Myers, Florida to Kimball, South Dakota to New Orleans, Louisiana and back home again. 4,744 miles on the odometer (4,062 miles of direct routing per Google Maps) and lots of cities and towns, and great times with family and friends along the way. Considering 5 days in South Dakota and another 7 in Louisiana, most of the road was accomplished in 4-5 days. The BIG trip is over and now back to reality. Luna appears to have no problem slipping back into routine…the question is how well I will do with all of the catch-up at work. Reality is sinking in.
