So sad to hear the news of Dick's passing. It still seems unreal to me but it helps reading other people's stories and letting it sink in. In 1992 I asked Dick to play mandolin and guitar on my first album. What a great session it was. He listened to the songs breifly and came up with exquisite embellishments for each song. I remember being floored with his mastery and with the speed of his "getting" a piece. I still love his simple work on my song "Hands of Time." His tremolo on his mandolin is still chilling. Through the years we would do gigs together from time to time. The last one was at the Gene Autry Museum a couple of years ago. When we played together sometimes I would just want to stop and listen to him, but then realized it was my turn to play. What a beautiful soul. I will miss him very much. I'll close with these lyrics from one of the songs he played on:
(from Hands of Time,
Copyright Joyce Woodson 1993 Row to Hoe Music)
"So while others conspire I sit by the fire
I no longer pine after days gone by, cause I know that I
Am held in the hands of time.
Once I believed I had the world at my feet
Once I had time, now time has me.
So like a light at the stair or an old rocking chair
The old wooden cuckoo will always be there
Like a late midnight prayer, telling me all will be fine,
Cause I'm held in the hands of time."
(May the music always bind us together, Joyce)
