Yes - Byron Bay Bluesfest 2012


Yes, Yes and Yes again. As the soft finger picked notes seemingly drifted through the ether accompanied by a tinkling bell a blue light surrounded us all and we appeared to be enveloped. No man...we were conceived in a soft blue cuckoon of a world as Steve Howe sang those immortal words, 'A man conceived a moment's answer to the dream/ Staying the flowers daily, sensing all the themes' and we all looked at each other and thought 'wow, is it that long ago we stayed the flowers daily?' And the answer is Yes and No. And perhaps if we are honest, we've stayed the flowers daily On and Off. You know, you drift away and Life beats like a bellicose baboon around your head, and you lose focus, so the honest answer is Yes and No, but mainly No because we all fool ourselves, On





 and Off, but to be honest mostly Off. But I digress from Yes The Concert where possibility wafted before us, no... Us, like an electrical banana before an electrical bellicose baboon and we were soothed and 'Emotion revealed as the ocean maid/A clearer future, morning, evening, nights with you' and we thought about the Ocean Maid and what indeed she was revealing - well to be honest I did, it flashed before me..., and put a lift into my day, and probably flashed before Len and Pat although I can't say for sure and didn't want to ask but nonetheless 'A clearer future, morning, evening, nights with you' became clearer, in fact the whole day gained some sort of perspective and suddenly it was clarity in buckets as the percussion gathered momentum courtesy of Alan White and a figure appeared to the left of the stage and then hovered about two metres above the head of Howe. It was a kaftaned figure sitting in the lotus position -remember the
lotus? Oh man, those were the days. Now? More bloatus than lotus LOL!! Anyway Len said 'It's HIM man' and holy patchouli I kid you not, it was indeed Donovan, with a beatific smile and in the palms supplicant possie chanting 'I embrace you all, and oh yes I taught YES everything I did I did, as I, the Alpha and Omega, am the source of all musics from the dawn of the Celtic time, or the time of the Celtic Dawn, whichever man. '  And Steve Howe with a halo around his head and with Donovan floating above sang those immortal lines again
Coins and crosses/ (Turn round tailor, assaulting)/ Never know their fruitless worth
and Len, Pat and I looked again at each other in absolute awe as the meaning slowly dawned on us.

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I
find this matter to be really something which I think I would
never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.

I usually do not drop a ton of remarks, however i
did some searching and wound up here "Yes - Byron Bay Bluesfest 2012".

And I do have a couple of questions for you if it's allright. Could it be simply me or does it look as if like a few of these comments come across like they are left by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing on additional sites, I would like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post. Would you make a list of every one of all your community sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
