I like old records, I think I just like old stuff, but something in the imperfection of records appeals to me. I have few albums but the one I listened to the most was Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Rust Never Sleeps.

But, tonite I was stumbling about in the basement and came across a box of records. In it among other greats was John Denver. I recently saw a tv program made shortly before he was killed in a plane crash. It was so inspirational how he was so in touch with nature. They showed him with a guide lying in a herd of elk, being careful not to make noise and frighten them. The herd passed on either side within yards of them. And there was a couple whom he had written a real emotional song for them, and played it for them in their cabin in Alaska. It was so beuatiful.

Finding this small treasure amongst the practical garbage that inhabits my house's basement made me feel very optimistic. Somehow I relate this to some of the little things people do or draw or write that they may feel is unappreciated. Really, just like a record in a box in the basement that has been sitting there for years, maybe one day someone will find it, and it will make that person happy.
