Midcoaster Thanks, ZZ. I was feeling it hard this weekend, even though my travel home was made possible due to the kindness of neighbors. It was definitely a "strangers stopping strangers" sorta moment, and that helped me rally for the journey home.

And then, BOOM, I was home. For me, that is a three hour drive east of Portland, Maine. That means that 90% of the live music I catch is planned well in advance, and I'm not surrounded by Phish fans. Far from it. For Curveball, the advanced planning included friends coming together from MD, DC, PA, NY, ME, MA and MN. We all have busy lives, and the pieces of the puzzle, here, fell into place, miraculously.

The loss, here, is that to bring this group together again will prove challenging. Some or many of the puzzle pieces may be missing on a reschedule. Stars don't just "line up" all that often. For me, it may have been the last Phish show I was able to swing until summer 19. That's a long time to wait for lightning to strike again.

While I can keep things in perspective, it still hurts.

Maybe I'll see some of you again!

Maybe not. is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.

This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
