To All of You
By Lonnie Nelson (1932-2014)
My love for each of you is there in my work, some named and some not.
Remember to laugh. Being frustrated and angry can only go on for so long; then you have to do something about it or let it go.
Mostly doing something worked the best for me.
If you have ever wondered what kept my spirits up, it was knowing all those others working for real change.
My life has been satisfying, exciting and rich. Even with difficulties everyone has to survive.
Buy lots of wine, good cheese, sparkling cider and cake.
Rent the Labor Temple for music, poetry and friendship.
Invite all my friends to celebrate our travels together and the road you have ahead.
