Surgery 173

• October 23rd, 2017

173

for Geraldine Pitre Hill (1930-2017)

My mother passed away in May. She had been suffering from a variety of illnesses and injuries for a little over six years, so the end was not a surprise. At the time I let the practical part of my brain handle the practical parts of death... the details, the paperwork, the logical letting go. The afterwards of a passing is a prolonged business, and it involves many occasional and unexpected confrontations with your emotions. Lately as I sort through the photos she left behind (and there are many) her absence makes a sudden and much deeper impact than at the time of her death. She loved music... her taste running to oldies, country, regional folk, the things she and her sisters and friends used to play and sing. These songs are not things she would have listened to, but they remind me or her and of the context we shared during the last half decade or more. They are for her, for me, for the spaces inside that we didn't always put into words.

Hello Friends. I'm happy to be here and finally breaking the summer silence. My usually slow schedule came to a complete halt, but with good reason.

I was rushed for time this week so you are all getting a "ten minute track" show.

Essentially I dove into iTunes and picked 6 tracks that all hovered around 10 minutes in duration and that fit fairly well together as a mix and voila!

As with previous years time becomes an issue through the Spring/Summer months, so Surgery will likely go to once a month for the next four months... but who knows... I may fill in the gaps with more "Vintage" episodes as they are already on hand.

Enjoy!
