POSTCARD FROM ON THE WAY HOME FROM TODOS SANTOS
Well the second Todos Santos Music Festival seems to me to be a very good thing-- truly a fine time had by all and I cannot think of a more relaxed, fun, chill few days of music and friendship in a special environment: the rough-hewn, charming town of Todos Santos, art town, surf town, food town, music town. Among my highlights: catching up with friends I was way overdue seeing, getting to hear some tremendous music by a variety of artists, making new friends, seeing old ones. In generala, I had a blast at this very special thing Peter, with help from many, has created. Highly recommended. Yes it is a ways to go to get there, but the rewards are many on all those levels. I missed the heyday of Big Sur as a salon of sorts where all kinds of artistic types, starting from a basis of friendship and shared values, regularly came together to create and commune-- it is the stuff of legend and I feel like the last few days were a little like that, at least from this fan's perspective. In some ways the Todos Santos festival is like a tiny version of what I like about the big ones we have all been to over the years and which formed many of the lasting memories of my career representing the band: often for a worthwhile cause bigger than any individual or group, always conducive to interesting collaborations and combinations, all centering on friends and their love for music.
That was fun-- long may it continue. Peter you have my eternal congratulations, thanks and gratitude.
