A Wonderful Memory Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

It's after midnight and I can't sleep. Probably not the best time to recollect emotive-memories. But, oh well, here goes:

I was at my first C-Stone. I had arrive a little later than expected. I shared a room with (then manager) J.T. Feavel. My luggage hadn't caught up with me and JT insisted I take a free "Little-Big" T-shirt and change into it. Moments later Roe walked into the room. We had only met once previously at the first Andy's Angels Christmas gig near Seattle. It was a warm reunion and I was greatly warmed.

JT had a "welcome to the gang" gift pack for me of copies of all the new releases from Dogs and associated such and such (77s, DA, etc). I was really pleased to get my Mr. B release with the liner notes in it about Andy.

Down a few doors was the first night at C-Stone gathering in Dougherty's room. I reunited with Terry and met Derri, Steve H., Mark B, Tim, and others. Jeff Elbel was in the room but I wouldn't really meet him until the next day, back-stage at his gig and was embarrassed that I didn't recall meeting him the night before. Too many new faces all at once.

I had a great chat with Tim C. on the balcony. He is one of the most personable persons in God's universe whom you could have the fortune to meet. He makes you feel as though you are the center of his universe for the time in which you share together. That is a gift. A couple nights later I would splurge for our late night dinner. It was "Burger" run and didn't then realize the irony as I offered him, "Berger?" He declined.

At any rate, that first night... I went back to the hotel room and JT handed me a copy of the "single C-Stone release" for the CAACONAA project which included "Andrie" (an acoustic version) and the Dogs new rendition of "Lord, protect my child."

I took it down to my rent-a-car and listened alone. I was in a state of joy and satisfaction. And then it came to the part where Terry's voice chimes in and I choked, tears filling my eyes. "We did it," I whispered aloud to the Host that must have been there in the car with me. My late son was honored and people I never thought I would ever meet had lent their God-given gifts to make the sound happen and the joy more wondrous than I could have imagined.

The best part was yet to come; life long friendships.

(ps: remind me to tell you all how I first met Wes Berlin in person for the first time the following day)

The day I met you and Wes, I gave you both a ride to the motel room in my mufferless 1991 Ford Ranger.

I offered the ride and said, "There is only one seat-belt."

"Whatever," came the reply from Wes, who was wearing sunglasses.
I don't remember what time it was, but the sun had set several hours before.

I don't even remember who road on the hump, but I think it may have been the SnowMan. Shocked

Good times.
Goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooood times! Pleased

Hey Theo, I was at the intimate little Andy's Angels acoustic show you and Terry did at Cornerstone. Just wanted to let you know how beautiful and touching that show was to my wife and I. It made our hearts ache, but it was also very spritually uplifting. I was so impressed with your courage and fortitude, and after watching the short film about Andy and hearing you speak about him, I know Andy possessed those same traits. We would have said hi after the show, but my wife was pretty wrecked, emotionally.

Thank you for sharing such a personal part of your life with us that day. It made quite an impact on us.

Thank you, James.

That was kind of a brutal afternoon. We had been awaiting arrival of the film (put together by Todd Zeller of Eden Z Films). So when it played there in the flickerings tent, it was the first time any of us had viewed it.

Terry & I sat in the front row doing that snort/choke thing you do when you are involuntarily moved emotionally. Then we got up and played.

I don't know that in all the tours and presentations afterwards that there was ever quite so candid an event. Everybody in the tent was very gracious. It was a small group. Terry and I packed up and left the tent. As soon as we were out back and alone, he stopped, turned to me and said, "I hope you realize that God was in there."

No doubt about it. Red Face

That was a very special day.


I don't know why I wrecked the mood by running to see the goth "bride of Christ."

wow, i can't believe the flood of memories this thread brings back!!!

the funny thing is that i too was at the flickerings tent (and went to see the goth bride of christ)! it was my first (and only) cornerstone and i can't think of a better experience than that one.

on a side note: one thing that was so baffling to me @ cornerstone (which will make no sense to anyone from the mid west) was how i could be so directionless. first off let me say that i am very good about knowing exactly where i am at and how to get where i need to be. secondly, being born and raised in my little area of southern cali i am so used to my compass being based on the mountains. mountains = north. so i fly into wisconsin, to meet a friend who i go to c-stone with, and one of the first things i say is "i knew it was called the flatlands.......but geeeeezzzz!" i was soooooo lost! the whole week was like i was blind.........which i am (at least i feel like it).

more later.

Every time I think of meeting Wes at C-Stone I laugh (the story has been told here before), but I also think of the Bible story where Jesus saw the disciple sitting by the tree before the disciple ever came to the Lord.

Why? Because it had been a hot muggy day, it was finally starting to cool down a tad and there was this guy standing under a tree and he knew who I was, tho' I didn't know him.

And that was a story all of itself just seeing its genesis.

So much goodness in just one life. Red Face Cool

Season Tickets! ...I will not covet...I will not covet..I will not covet
Yes, I'll be down for most of the week, taking a 3 day seminary course on healing the sinned against. It would be great to see you

Wild ride sounds kinda scarey (when it's not a dog song)
