No, I didn't attend a Ram Dass gathering, but actually was back in Florence, Oregon, the place I wrote most of the songs on my CD. The occasion was my mother-in-law's 85th birthday. I'll let the others blog all the family pics, opting instead for a little photo essay of rediscovery. I waited out in the rain for about 10 minutes until the sign read "Be Here Now" again. Guess the manager's a hippie or somethin'.
