"Have you ever heard of Joe Kowalski?"
T Max had been starting to despair. He could not find the right bass player for his Brian Eno tribute project.
"Lexi, you won't believe it! Joe Kowalski came over today, and he nailed it!"
I forgot about this Joe Kowalski until a week before the show.
Somehow or other I ended up being the one to take the band's publicity shot.
Mostly because I could get my hands on a digital camera.
In those days, they cost nearly a grand and weighed a ton.
So on a sweltering summer day I took press photos of
Gene, Peter, Shawn, Tamora, Joel, T Max, Glenn and Eddie,
barely noticing the new bass player that nobody ever heard of
become my best friend and mad love.
After this photo was taken, on a borrowed camera for a show that I wasn't even planning to attend,
I fell in love with Joe Kowalski.
Happy Enoversary, my love.
I'm so happy my dreams pulled you through my door.
I'LL COME RUNNING
I'll find a place somewhere in the corner
I'm gonna waste the rest of my days
Just watching patiently from the window
Just waiting season change, some day
Oh, oh, my dreams will pull you through that garden gate
I want to be the wandering sailor
We're silhouettes by the light of the moon
I sit playing solitaire by the window
Just waiting seasons change,
You'll see, one day, these dreams will pull you through my door
And I'll come running to tie your shoe.
