Three days ago, I called home and wept into the phone. Rowan said, "Da Da." We were in Columbus, Indiana, home of Cummins corporation, very successful engine-makers. The founder paid architectural design costs for many buildings in Columbus, provided they picked an architect from an A-list he had compiled. The result is stunning and worth a trip. It's great to see Americans making stuff, too. Let's make stuff again, like we used to do.
Tim Grimm hosted and presented us at a bookstore in town. His son is touring with him, playing bass. We made him play a couple of his great songs after the show. Just a handful of us. He stood on one leg and played without a strap in the dim lights of closing time.
