I'm wondering what links to "Cowboy" life and ways Al Aronowitz might have? In recent years he wears a Western Shirt and Cowboy hat. Is this a long term thing with him? He sure seems like a swell fellow and lately I've become interested in Jewish folk who find themselves cross-pollenating with Cowboy ways and lore.
Whether it's a large, visible kinship (i.e. Ramblin' Jack Elliott & his hat, songs and rodeo days) or just a person who likes the clothes, I'm interested.
Is it possible for me to contact Al?
So you'll know a little about me. I'm Cindy Kelly, a singer-songwriter and I really enjoy learning things about people and places. I grew up something of a cowgirl around horses, cattle and the like, but found I had a good bit of broad-minded hippie intertwined. I'm attaching a bio and photo.
Hope this finds you well and having a great 2004....Sincerely, Cindy

AN E FROM BIRGITTA
Subject: touring California in September to promote the anthologies
Date: Thu, 29 Jan 2004 08:39:15 +1300
From: Birgitta Jonsdottir email@example.com
Dear contributor of the book of hope and the world healing book
I haven't written to you for a long time. i moved to the other end of the world to a fair and beautiful land where people have plenty of smiles and dolphins play in the bays around it i am thankful for having spend time here
but destiny pulls me back to my little old island at the other edge of the world and so i am moving again now all of this moving has of course distracted me from my dreams and projects. however in the larger picture it has added a new dimension to my life that has yet to be understood or seen clearly.
As i am shaping and molding this new year i just want you to know that i am still committed to the anthologies.
After talking to Larry Jaffe about ways to promote them further in the US we came up with this informal plan of action. The focus is on doing it at various venues in California in September/October this year. Larry is going to set up the venues and thus it is important for him to know if any of you would be interested in performing in California. I don't have a structure yet as it will shape with the amount of people that are willing to perform. But it can be a tour that spans all of California or only the cluster that is SF, LA and SD. I know some of you have expressed interest a long time ago to do CA but that was a long time ago. I will travel to CA to help Larry and to everything i can to promote the books while i am there.
thank you all from the bottom of my heart for everything you have already done.
with mountains of joy as always
in New Zealand until 1st of March

SHE READ 'LET'S 'AVE A LARF'
Subject: Bob Dylan
Date: Sun, 04 Jan 2004 10:26:44 -0500
From: "Mardean Isaac" email@example.com
Dear Blacklisted Journalist,
I just read your article "Lets 'ave a larf!" for the first time. First of all, congratulations on playing a part in shaping the history of rock music. Secondly, I know you knew Bob Dylan. I've recently started listening to him seriously, and I was wondering if you could give me any and all biographical information you have on him. I'm not looking for generic information or facts, just anecdotes, subjective opinion (that seems to be the only kind of opinion one can have on Dylan), and anything you could tell me. This is not for a project or anything, I'm just deeply curious as to what he's like personally, or was like. For example, you mentioned he treated everyone poorly... I've heard this before, but how so? What is his relationship with women like? Is it radically different from the way he portrays them in his songs? Do you think the fact he is elusive and oblique is a factor in the reverence people have for him? I would be very grateful if you could write back with any information. Keep up the good work,

A BAR MITZVAH BOY REMEMBERS CANTOR HILLEL SADOWITZ
Subject: Hillel Sadowitz
Date: Wed, 17 Dec 2003 11:00:25 -0500
From: "Philip Wasserman" firstname.lastname@example.org
Out of the blue, I decided to do a google search for Cantor Hillel Sadowitz. It was just one of those strange thoughts that run through your head and you never really understand why. I came up with your touching article.
Cantor Sadowitz was my Hebrew school teacher and the Cantor at my Bar Mitzvah in 1966 at Temple Israel.
Cantor Sadowitz and I were good friends (as good as a 13 year old and a teacher can be).
I am sorry to hear about his passing. He will be remembered by many.

what a great article on the "Let it be Naked" album.
You always seem to filter out all the crap and really hit it on the nail right down to the last sentence.
