Mid-May 2022 - Spring Finally Here
by adg on Thu May 12, 2022 8:10 am
It's the middle of May 2022, and the leaves are just now opening in the forest on the hill. Because of our elevation we're a little behind almost everyone else in the Northeast, even our neighbors just down the road. We could still see some snow, but it's becoming less likely as each day passes. I can't remember how to post photos here (it was never easy), or I would do so. This remains a website that was years ahead of most, but its age shows limits, and photos are a good example. Maybe the wizard will update it some day. But for now, it's enough just to keep everyone up to date, and it works for that.

Being back up at the farm is a joy. We're getting ready to begin planting things that grow - Flowers and veggies. Before ya know it, summer will be over and I head to warmer climates (getting a little too old to be shoveling snow). But, for now, and for the next few months, I'll be here enjoying it all as best I can. Mostly I think I'll be hanging around the cement pond, and making comments about the gardens.
Officially On The Hill - Back Again Spring 2022
by adg on Wed Apr 27, 2022 8:48 am
We've been back on the farm for just about 3 weeks. Enough to catch a little snow. Today for the first time we're beginning to see a reddish-purple hue in the forest trees, a sign that spring is about to happen. The birds are ahead of us, they've been here a little longer. Marti & I went up to hear Janis Ian as planned and had a lovely time in Saratoga Springs, revisiting Caffe Lena. I haven't been there for a long time. They made it much better than I remembered. We walked there and couldn't even find the new entrance (a little farther down the street), so we entered the old way going past a door that said something like "Employees and Deliveries Only". I remembered the stairs anyway. Funny stuff.

Now we're settling into the old farm thinking about how quickly it all seems to go by. Time flies no matter if you're having fun or not. The older I get the faster it seems to go by. No complaints - Just an observation. Some time within about 3 weeks we'll get the winter cover off the cement pond and lounge around the pool - Or at least I will. Nice to be back at my old desk, drinking coffee, and watching the thoughts come and go. They've been doing that for decades. They continue...
Coming Back To The Farm - Spring 2022
by adg on Sun Mar 27, 2022 7:41 am
We've been down in Florida for a while, trying to stay warm, but it's getting a little too warm and humid. Meanwhile the robins are due to show up at the farm any day now. So Marti & I are heading back for a visit. My friend, Janis Ian is due to perform at Lena's in April and I wanted to be in the neighborhood for that event as well. There's nothing like a little crisp mountain air, cold spring water, and flowers so I'm looking forward to that.

These last few months have been wonderful back in my old neighborhood of Sebastian. I got to see some old friends and revisited some of the local haunts for food and drink. I even made some new friends! Getting out and about here is easy as everything is close by. At the farm everything is miles away, but it's nice to be isolated too.

I do miss the CrabHouse, and living on the river, but no complaints. A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do. Presently I'm getting ready for Spring in the Berkshires, family & friends that come to visit, and local neighbors stopping by. I looking forward to seeing my old band & crew mates, sitting around remembering the years and decades we spent on the road. There's a lot of good stories yet to be told around the fireplace. I'm up for that.
Michael Lang 1944-2022

January 9, 2022 - Sebastian, FL - Little Pink

The sun rose this morning without my old friend, Michael Lang in this world. Michael passed away Saturday night having fought cancer for a while. He was 77.

Michael will probably be remembered as one of the co-producers of the 1969 Woodstock Festival. But he was the one that nurtured the continuing legacy. Michael & I had talked often regarding the anniversaries as they came and went. He was generous, kind, and honest in all his dealings with me. We weren't close friends but I think we had a mutual respect for each other that didn't demand closeness.

The last time we met face to face was 2009 over a dinner in Woodstock, NY his home town. And the last time we spoke together was the phone calls in 2019 regarding the 50th anniversary of the 1969 event. It is not the last time I will remember him fondly. Interviewers from around the world are still calling, asking about Woodstock and they will continue. Like the festival itself, Michael Lang is now the stuff of legends.

I hope Michael's family, his wife and children, get through this time with much grace knowing the thoughts and memories of his friends now go directly to them.
Happy Thanksgiving 2021

Just wishing everyone a day to find something to be thankful for. It's a holiday all over the world, altho not on any particular day. It's especially celebrated in places which coincides with the harvest season. Happy Thanksgiving wherever you are, and whenever it comes around. :)
