R.I.P. Gordon Lightfoot

One of the greatest solo artists ever, I think. A true Canadian troubadour.

I admire Rick Beato, and he deconstructs this astonishing song in the most profoundly detailed way and allows those such as I to understand the subtle complexities of Lightfoot's seminal hit song, "If You Could Read My Mind".

Gordon Lightfoot played the community center on the RCAF base we lived on back in the 70's. I took my grandmother for her birthday. I remember the day with perfect clarity. I miss my grandmother. Feeling melancholy....

Early Morning Rain

Heard it in Hua Hin, Thailand and smiled.
Help others, especially animals. Say what you think, be considerate of others. Appreciate more than deprecate. Teach well, jump on teachable moments. Enjoy Korea as it is, without changing it. Dwell! Yet, at times, change your life for the better. "The most important [thing] is to have a good day."

Just found out.  Rest in peace Gordon.  My grandfather had the same name.  Pretty solid Canadian name. 
Happy Teachers Day to New Orleans.
