Re: “Learning to Fly

These kids are great!
I remember sitting front row, star struck, as Peter Rolland played in the fiddle trio of the great show Diamond Studs at Old Tucson.
He's the father of Matt and Grace and Bekah's father in law?
Proves correct once again the old saying...

Re: “Tucson Salvage

After having been born and raised in Tucson by loving devoted parents who gave their all, with limited resources and personal issues of their own, it's a challenge for me to understand how Sherman can still manage to hold himself together while also striving to be better. Especially after that all he has survived thus far in his life. He seems to grasp an inner strength I greatly admire...
That beautiful snake tightly grips his neck as a motherly warmth and security against outside foes, and spritual doubters, like a multi-wrapped wool scarf in a blizzard...
And forget bringing your cute dog to the park to pick up women or meet people, nothing will invite interesting conversation and bring out a person's true passionate views of living than a boa wrapped around one's neck!
Leave it to Brian to discover seemingly one act plays by left of center deviants and with great talent, observe and interpret their journey to reveal their full length epic feature film..

What a wonderful story!

Re: “Tucson Salvage

"Forget it all. In this world you can't lift a fork to your mouth to feed yourself or brush a wayward hair from your face, much less reach out and touch another human being.".....

Wow......and I think that I have problems?

The stunning courage of a young woman put to paper,
A great tribute, Brian, thank you!

Re: “Tucson Salvage

A wonderfully descriptive read that should've been a cover story!!
Greylock Mansion were legends in Tucson when I was a little kid, during the AM golden years of KTKT.
Not sure if they received much airplay, their reign was before my time. And correct me if I am wrong, but is not their cryptic name taken from an actual haunted mansion back then on what was extreme boondocks Broadway just east of Wilmot??
Culturally rich historic Tucson holds many secrets,
we ought to praise TW for it's launch of "Tucson Salvage", and the excellent detailed research and writing of Tucson native Brian Smith!
