A letter from Dirk

Dirk_in_Italy2010

   Electric bolts like lightening crackled between the power poles above the old church where the Sundilla Concert Series shows are held, announcing that this particular show would not be usual. The sound system fried. The air conditioning died but somehow we still had the overhead lights. Someone found a box of Popsicle-stick fans to pass out, and I played my songs unplugged to the toasty, fluttering crowd. Everyone seemed interested, receptive and glad to be there.

     Slogging through the streets of big cities you tend to forget that big-hearted little towns even exist. Close encounters with informed innocence feed my soul. Despite the constant tragic turns, consciousness is always humanity's direction.

     The next night, thanks to the generosity of some new friends, I was in the stadium when Auburn beat Clemson. Then I was pampered by a perfect breeze, and we spent a green afternoon sitting saying little by a cool, transparent lake.

     Bailey dropped me off at the Birmingham airport where I caught a surprise, earlier, direct flight back to Dallas. Now I’ll be able to watch the Manning brothers battle it out on Sunday Night Football. I think my luck has changed.

     (Now watch me get hit by a bus!  Life’s like that)

     Note some changes and additions to the Concert dates, I'll be hoping to see you at these shows - until then...

Fondest regards,

Dirk
