Mixed feelings today. The album I released this year, "the Poquito Pioneer", about one man's journey through the desert to Salvation Mountain was recognized today on You Crazy Dreamers' best of the year list. But today I also found out that Leonard Knight (the creator of Salvation Mountain) is not living in the desert at his beloved mountain anymore and is living in assisted care. Also even more tragic, his long time helper/caretaker at Salvation Mountain, Kevin, has passed away. Amy and I were fortunate enough to meet both these folks and hang out, please keep them in your heart this holiday season.
