When I look back on 2008, I think the heaviest of realizations I conclude, is that the music has always been in, and a part of me. For as long as I can remember, there's been a song in every task I've ever carried out.
During a hiatus, late in 2014, I took a phone call from a dear friend of mine, Jim Dalton, of the Railbenders, Hickman-Dalton Gang, and Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers. I met Jim in my Denver years, those of which are for another story, another time. Suffice it to say we became good friends.
