Unnoticed in Clever Worlds

The clearest description I have managed so far about my blog is that it is not about cats. In general, I find predators pretty predictable while prey on the other-hand, because they live in universes of anxiety, develop more textured personalities. I also have as a writer a deft hand when it comes to making matters worse, so of course , the already panicky are ready made for me. I will try to grow this blog into an assortment of laughs, because that is what my life has mostly taught me to do. I will use the famous people I have known to get your attention and then tell you small but many times wonderful things about them. I will never name the ones I say ugly things about but I hope you will guess who they are.

The unbearable sadness of the Rock band “Genesis”

I worked for two bands in the seventies as tour manager. One of them, Genesis, was made up of three vegetarians and Phil Collins. My posthumous book on touring with them will contain a special sentence, ” the hardest task I was given was finding vegetarian restaurants in Germany from 1973 through 1977.”
Phil and I would immediately leave the backstage dressing room after a show and head out in a cab to find a burger. There would never be anything to eat. And while I am getting things off my chest the only wine available was a panicky german white called “Blue Nun” which was so bad Phil and I confided that we both hoped the band would fail so we could stop drinking it.
On more than one occasion the set was shortened to facilitate our hunger. Adding to the discomfort was the fact that he and I were the only ones who got stoned. Everyone else had been rendered too delicate by their diet to even think about having a good time.


Waiting for a Lifetime

We may wait a lifetime to be asked to reach a verdict on our own lives. That day may never come but if it does, your child is likely to venture it. We are their mystery.
Life requires patience and finding the right ears for your mouth.
