Memory Lane

Here’s a great project, that will fill you full of gratitude and reminiscing:

Try to write down all the friends you’ve ever had – from memory.

No address book, no phone, no Facebook. Just memory.

Remember all those people you met and connected with that made a difference in your life. It’s amazing how many are still in your head.

childhood friends you haven’t seen since you were 8.


old crushes and flings

random encounters with great conversations

There are some you’ll remember who don’t remember you. (There are some you’ve forgotten who remember you well.)

I did mine chronologically, walking through my life from past to present. What a trip.

Some are dead. Some might be. Some have changed their names. Some hate me.

Some day I’ll be dead, and this will still be posted. (A reverse funeral! The dead remembering the living. Wow.)

To those listed here: I remember you off the top of my head, think of you fondly, and you permanently affected me, even if we haven’t talked in years. If you find this some day when

googling your name, contact me to say hello.

    I Googled you a few times, but tonight found you—the keyboard was on your website, and you listed Little Joe as a friend.

    I’m Dana King from NO–70′s–waitress at the Bistro–married and divorce with 2 children—moved to Oregon in 1975–remarried for over 30 years—2 grandchildren and 1 on the way.

    I hope you’re doing well. It’s wonderful to see that you are married with children and grandchildren.

    I was only back to NO once in 2002–the internet wasn’t so prevalent then. Wish I could have seen you play and introduced you to Mike.

    Be well, and if you are ever in Oregon come see us. It was so nice to see that you are still around and playing music.

    Isn’t it nice to meet old friends after so many years!! I remember Lil’ Joe spoke to me about you and the strong friendship ya’ll had. He was a unique spirit and I still miss him dearly.
    I have a new CD that will be released next month entitled “My Life’. One of the songs is a tribute to Lil’ Joe. I hope you will give it a listen and leave a comment.
