In Memoriam: Blue Vista
Tuesday, 02 February 2010
 
MIX OF "AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL" AND BLUE REACTION TO GARAGE-TOP VISTA:
 
Just below the sidewalk on JFK St. in Harvard Square is a little elevator button that points 'up."
And at the top of this elevator is a flight of stairs. And at the top of these stairs is a vista over pristine steeples and S-shaped river. During a late-October sunset in 2007, I contemplated this vista with "Brother Blue". Two years later he passed on at the age of 88. He conjured up Ray Charles for us, and I think he got it all right: the song, the setting, the nation, and his self. Keep calling us from the mountain, Blue.
