A special honor: Gordon Lightfoot, I and Devanee (2014)


Autographed ‘Gordon Lightfoot‘ LP from 1974.


His 50th year performing — and he will be 80-years old this November 17th!

Yikes!

I am torn. I have seen him twice and as you can see above, met him ONCE. That was in Wolfeboro, NH, in 2014. I was a volunteer stagehand for the concert. He thanked me and then posed with us for a picture.

That was 6-years ago. He was frail then, but still quite the performer.

Not sure I want to see him … now.

I want to remember him from 2014.

But, I might change my mind.

He will, as you can see, be at the ‘Capitol Center for the Arts‘.

WOW!

I wish I had known earlier. I only heard about it a couple of hours ago — on the radio. I am teaching tomorrow. Shame.

I will have to keep an eye open for other concerts.

There is NOT going to be too many left; he was born November 17, 1938. So he will be 79 later this year!

I was EXTREMELY PRIVILEGED to meet him, in Wolfeboro, NH, in 2014. I was a volunteer stagehand for the concert. He thanked me and then posed with us for a picture.

Second time I had seen him, the first in Tempe, AZ in 1980.

He is brilliant and SUCH A NICE GENTLEMAN.

I wish him well. I hope he can continue to tour for another couple of years. It is hard on him. We could see that in 2014.

Boston Massachusetts Mormon Temple at 86 Frontage Rd
Belmont, MA 02478-2135.


President-elect Mitt Romney’s church, viz. ‘The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints‘ (the ‘Mormons‘), is justifiably famous for its ornate, imposing, typically soaring (to pierce the heavens), usually blinding white Temples — such as the one in Boston, pictured above.

I like the look and feel of Mormon Temples. If I am close to one, I make a point of trying to visit it to have a tour. During 1980 to 1983 I used to travel to Tempe, Arizona (suburb of Phoenix) on a regular basis for extended business trips. In the evenings and weekends I would set out to explore, far and wide, in the process forming an abiding love with that amazing State and its native Indian population. One of my discoveries was the Mormon Temple in Mesa, just a few blocks from my favored hotel (‘Fiesta Inn‘) in Tempe. They used to have a very impressive collection of petrified trees. Many evenings I would stop by the Temple, park on the street, and wonder through the immaculately maintained gardens replete with those petrified trees. Yes, I have been to the ‘mother-ship’ in Salt Lake City and the one in Oahu, Hawaii (now called the ‘Laie Hawaii Temple’), which used to be associated with the ‘Polynesian Cultural Center‘ that used to do amazing programs. Though I have never visited it, in all of my time in D.C., I am also familiar with the so called ‘upturned pig‘ Temple in D.C.

The fairy castle like, mother-ship Mormon Temple in Salt Lake City, Ut.

The Washington, D.C. Temple referred to by many as the ‘Upturned Pig’ because all you see from the famous D.C. Beltway is 4 of the heaven piercing steeples.



There is a likelihood that the Mormon Church, which is continually building new Temples or upgrading the existing ones [e.g., Mesa, AZ], will decide to convert the current unimposing church in Woleboro, 388 Main Street (just above ‘Winter Harbor’) into a full Temple to celebrate Mitt Romeny’s presidency — the 1st Mormon President.
