Musically speaking...

All of this reminiscing about my family the past few weeks has me thinking of another event. When Keith and Keli and I went down to Florida in 1992 to see Mickey Mouse for Keli's fourth birthday, we spent several days on the Gulf Coast visiting with Uncle Ken and seeing his favorite coastal haunts.

As we sat up chatting one evening he pulled out a mix tape he'd made of one of his favorite songs done by every artist that he could find (with a prerequisite that he also had to actually enjoy listening to that particular cover). We sat in his little apartment in the darkening living room just after sunset listening to all of these various versions of this song and the gentle lapping of the intercoastal waters just outside.

Incredible.

In my head: Willie Nelson's Amazing Grace
