I’m now in Seattle at one of my favorite places in the world : Bill Reiflin’s home. Bill and his wife, Frankie are two of my very favorite people. Tonight , the tour brings us to The Greenroom at the Showbox on 1st Avenue. Relaxing (we went for a walk around Green Lake yesterday) has been wonderful for me and I have a sense of family here. The show in San Francisco was also good and the following night, Victor, Haroun, and I spent the evening with Blixa Bargeld and his wife at their home in Menlo Park. Blixa treated us to a “bar-b-que” and *numerous* bottles of wine. It was an enlightening experience for me to say the least. A powerful TRUTH came out that evening and entered me – for the rest of my life. ……..WHAT’S LEFT : Tomorrow morning we begin the long haul to Chicago for the show on the 13th at The Bottom Lounge. Then on to Cleveland for the show on August 14 at Beachland Ballroom. Friday the 15th brings us to Rex Theatre in Pittsburgh. Saturday the 16th has us at La Sala Rosa in Montreal. Then we are in Boston Aug. 19 at JHCC (85 Newton Ave) . Finally we are in NYC at SIN-E on Aug 20 and then Philadelphia on Aug 21 at First Unitarian Church and Talking Heads Club in Baltimore on August 22 and then THE LAST SHOW is August 23 in Asheville, NC at Vincent’s Ear. ……. I have enjoyed meeting and talking with you after the show and I look forward to seeing the rest of you at these remaining concerts. … ok. signing off for now. – Your “corrupted Southern belle” 🙂 ( says John Graham at Willamette Week , Portland)
