Dear Friends of RAW, as Bob wrote about my Mom, Arlen -
"You have not snared her, Scarecrow Death: She's in my pulse, my heart, my breath."
I'd have to say he hasn't left either. You see . . . he's in OUR pulse, our hearts, our breath.
The past couple years have sped on by as I work to make sense of RAW's body of work, artifacts, and various loose ends. Probate is coming to a close, finally - the new website is ready to fly (thanks to Rasa at Pelorian Digital), and it's time to move forward in expanding RAW consciousness. For this I will need your help, insight, feedback and support as we create a wonderful opportunity to continue his work and mischief, with this website being a major focal point for RAW activity. Check in at the new Blog to add your voice.
Before we move on, I do want to announce that you now have an opportunity to have an authentic RAW Artifact, from his life, his home, his library, his love: up close and personal items as I work to raise funds to help his disabled son, and pay off his final debts. Yup, he left some. Didn't mean to, and apologized to me before skipping the event horizon. Wish I didn't have to, but it's my job to wrap up this debt, and move on so that we can actually do what he wanted. Which is to keep the lasagna flying - his work available to all who were interested, and provide some support for his son. He was never very attached to physical things, but he did get great joy from many items that came to be in his home. I want to make them available in the hopes that they will also bring you joy, and will close the door on Bob's debts. So here's your chance to have a real RAW Souvenir, to inspire your own Muse and bring RAW energy into your own space!
So thanks for being here, spread the word and we'll see you at the auction!
PS: Be sure to visit my mom's pages while you are here, and read some the words that gave such inspiration to my dad.
