I also want you to know that I sent you a copy of the letter you wrote me your first day back from N.O. mainly because the paragraph written about the plane ride and your description of the colors and relating it to our recent affair is burned into my brain as one of the greatest letters I've ever received.
I know it's been a long time and we've both been through a hell of a lot since all of that, but I was wondering when you get some time, what you remember about that 2 weeks. I have my own memories, but I had forgotten we drove to Morgan city and stayed in that cottage by the river until you reminded me in one of your letters. That's what you can give me for Valentine's Day--something to remember that I've forgotten made more important because it's your impression, and not mine.
I tried to translate your most recent Afrikaans, but nothing came back, so it's up to you to tell me what it meant, unless it's a secret. There's an internet translation thingy for Afrikaans to English but I thought it might be slang when it didn't register.
Finally, here is my Desert Island Disc top ten list of CDs that i reccomend you at least consider taking for your long haul on MMIV:
1. "Blood on the Tracks"--Bob Dylan. Just trust me on this one.
2. "Grace"--Jeff Buckley--this one reminds me of you, I don't know why, and in addition he drowned in the Mississippi the day before i went to see him play in Memphis. He was recording at my frien's studio prior to his untimely death. There are at least two songs on the tapes you have.
3. "Kind of Blue"--Miles Davis--this is essential for every human being in the world to own and marvel at.
4. "Desire"--Bob Dylan--this one has "Mozambique" amongst others, which is on one of the tapes I sent.
5. "Tutu"--Miles Davis--beautiful dreamy late Miles' tribute to Desmond while being all instrumental.
6. Anything by Gil Evans--another jazz pick, but very atmospheric and desert-like.
7. "Jimmy Hendrix Greatest hits" when you really want to escape.
8. Anything by Eric Satie: ask for a good collection. My favorite French early twentieth century composer.
9. "Chet Baker sings" Early Pacific Jazz label when Chet was still good looking and not yet ruined by smack + it should have "My Funny Valentine" on it, which is on the tape I made you that I can't send yet.
10. "Tommy" by the Who, not the soundtrack version whatever you do.
