Hold Me Tight Carmelita


I don’t have much to say today except that it’s been a very long day. I’ve been at the Library working on The Gonzo Way manuscript, which I’m very happy about. It was storming constantly, and dramatic and beautiful to hear the pouring rain on the skylights of the vaulted ceilings of the Aspen Pitkin County Library, where I’ve become almost a full-time resident since I started the Wisdom Manuscript nine months ago.
Anyway, before I close down for the night, I want to leave you with a bit of wisdom from the liner notes from “Where Were You When the Fun Stopped,” an album of some of Hunter’s favorite songs.

“Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel.
I have always needed fuel. I am a serious consumer. On some nights I still believe that a car with the gas needle on empty can run about fifty more miles if you have the right music very loud on the radio. A new high-end Cadillac will go ten or fifteen miles faster if you give it a full dose of Carmelita…”

Sweet dreams everybody, and I’ll check in when I get back from a little road trip tomorrow. As always, I’ll be listening to “Carmelita,” as it was our song…and…it still is our song.

Your friend in Woody Creek,
Anita Thompson
