I saw Mary-Chapin Carpenter last night in a small barroom. Ruth and I saw her on the tour behind the record "A Place in the World."
Ruth, who smoked, actually met John Jennings before the show and they shared a cigarette. I thought about them both being gone from cancer and I just wished them well in that place that only they know.
I just miss Ruth and John Jennings too but she and he were both alive in those notes and words. Jon Carroll was there too. No ponytail.
My hair is almost long enough for the ponytail.
