    R.I.P. Levon

    I always loved this song in particular. The story of the "Grand Derangement"- how the Cajuns came to Louisiana after being expelled from what is now Canada in the 1700s. A sad, sad story.

    Acadian driftwood, gypsy tailwind
    They call my home the land of snow
    Canadian cold front movin' in
    What a way to ride, oh what a way to go.

    Two-hundred fifty years later: "On December 9, 2003, Queen Elizabeth II signed the Royal Proclamation acknowledging the wrongs committed against the Acadian people in the name of the Crown and establishing a 'Day of Commemoration' on July 28th of each year."

    Acadian Driftwood is my favorite tune by The Band.

    It exemplifies what I think is so great about their music; no band has told history through their songs better.

    Saw them at SPAC circa 1973, their movie in Laramie, Wy circa 1976. Unique sound would be an understatement.

    " Some failure in life is inevitable. It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all -- in which case, you fail by default,"

    To beat the grim reaper in life it's not about how long you live but how you live it.
