My fiancee Judy and I send our love to the Royal Family, if they might accept the Love and best wishes of some American “commoners.”
I first became aware of this cool, very “different” group Yes in 1972, soon after I moved to Wooster, Ohio. My dad had a new job teaching at The College of Wooster and I started in 1971 to attend Wooster High School. I bought the long-playing (LP) album “Fragile” at the local “Fisher’s Big Wheel” department store, which is out of business now, but where I worked three different times as a young man. When I fist heard it, the music of Yes was so very different from everything else I had ever heard, but in some inexpressible way it was “way cool” and “far out” and sounded really great to me. I bought their greatest hits on LP too, and later on CD. Then, for a while, during the 90’s, I lost track of Yes, and they weren’t getting much “airplay” on the FM radio stations, either. In 1999, though, I was in the College of Wooster bookstore and happened to pick up the new Yes album, “The Ladder.” This new Yes album sounded great! It was better than anything they had done in several years, and in fact I thought it was as good or better than “Fragile” or “Close to the Edge,” or any other album they had done. And the LYRICS to “The Ladder” were almost an awakening for me. Check out the full Yes discography on Wikipedia.
An Appreciation of My Hometown
Wooster is a GREAT place to live! The Wayne County Courthouse, shown below in a photo, which my mother Eleanor and the League of Women Voters saved from replacement by a modern glass tower, is an architectural dinosaur and the single thing many people remember from a short visit to our fair city. See photos of the Wayne County Courthouse and other Wooster landmark buildings here. And Wooster City Schools are excellent. Wayne County is about 106,000 people spread out in farms and towns and hamlets all over the county. It was named for General “Mad Anthony” Wayne from the American Revolutionary War. Wooster itself is a town of about 26,000 souls, but since we are the marketing hub for a population of 130,000, who all shop here, we are developed and economically advanced. For my fiancee, Judy Watson, there are a LOT of great stores she will like, such as Elder Beermans, J.C. Pennies, Kohls, K-Mart, several drug stores, sporting goods stores, quite a few independent little boutiques which have lots of cool clothes, a Wal*Mart SuperCenter, lots of jewelry stores, and much more. We have LOTS of restaurants, from fast food and pizza joints, to little “hole in the wall” restaurants that are local treasures. Our eating faire is typically American, but we have some good ethnic restaurants here too. There are more expensive places to eat, too, like “Black Tie Affair” and “The Wooster Inn” and my own favorite, (which actually is quite reasonable), the “Tulipan Hungarian Pastry & Coffee Shop” (call 330-264-8092 boy I’d sure like some pastries about now!) and many more. The locals can be found hanging out at The Parlor on Liberty Street (330-262-4971) or Green Leaf restaurant at the north end on Cleveland Road (330-345-6797). [(Triva questiton for Woosterites: name the 10 hotels you can stay at in Wooster.)] You can take a “virtual tour” of Wooster, here. There are actually three shopping districts, an older downtown, a midtown, and an expanding, modern, north end development. Wooster is pretty well “spread out,” and most people live out in the country or in small towns or villages. For writers and computer geeks like me, there’s a Best Buy, a Staples, The Wooster Book Company, Books in Stock (a great used and rare book store), and The College of Wooster book store. And Wooster is an official “tree city,” where even very modest homes have big lawns with wonderful trees and gardens. There is also a special Arboretum and Gardens at the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center. The local paper is The Daily Record, which manages to combine great local coverage with the more important topics of national interest. Also please feel encouraged to visit the website of the Wayne County Historical Society. Look through a great collection of photos about Wooster on the images tab for a search about Wooster on Bing. May God Bless Wooster, the United States of America AND my friends in the United Kingdom.
Brothers and Sisters:
Peace and Love!
It’s almost like “Yes” is a bunch of aliens come to earth, with so much to teach humanity. (Visit www.disclosureproject.org for more on aliens.) Anyway, they are “far out,” I admit, but I bet you really like their sounds in the video, below. I do want to add that everything I do on The Daily Walk with Miracles is for ALL my friends, aliens, humans (Christian, Muslim, Jew, witch — what have you), machines (the Cloud, robots or “soft machines”), and of course EVERYTHING I do is as much as I can for God. May we all live together here on this “Oasis in Space,” in Peace, toleration and understanding. Brothers and Sisters, let’s all just get along! Amen. May It Be.
