Preface

Hello, My Dear Community Music Friends, I hope all is well as you digest a story of events not told enough. This is not Facebook. I have no use for the platform. I will try not to go into (boring) details as I give an account of how it went for Kathy and I.

My dear sister Veronica submitted my name to a popular New York newspaper in response to a request to "Write a Soldier in Viet Nam". (March 1966) The 'sugar report' (mail) I received was a bit overwhelming as I was always moving on a mission and choppers would drop off mail and supplies as we moved and my 50 to 1 letters weighed me down. Letters from School Kids of different grades, to women of all kinds, in support of me being where I am. My day or two back at base camp was spent trying to write back. Coming home was an adventure making Eye to Eye contact with quite a few of my 'pen pals'., and so after a phone call with Kathy, I went to meet her and take her on a date..I still had about 10 months left with the Screaming Eagles, so I proudly wore my Paratrooper uniform. She was really cute in person (what is another word for "hot"). Her family was nice to meet and so as we were leaving on our 'first date' her farther, Mr. Scaduto, better known as Tony or worst yet 'Sonny' from Mulberry St. (where Kathy was born) got close with the eyes, and asked me if I knew how old Kathy was? (I did not, It never came up) I turned to break eye contact to gaze at Kathy, rolling her eyes, from feet to face and guessed, "18,19". with confidence. He turned and walked away saying " she is 16, I want her home by 11," OK, that happened, nobody told me he was in the Normandy D-Day Invasion and sustained leg and head injuries, and did not like German boys, maybe especially 'horny' boys in uniform. (Who me??) Moving on.

And so, I took her Horseback riding and as I dismounted for a rest along a wooded trail, she would not remove herself from the saddle. We were alone and my intentions were honorable, honest. OK, that happened too. With the "idea wheels" spinning around in my head and making small talk I drove to the local airport with my shiny new/used 1965 Mustang 289ci V8 3 speed standard trans. and asked if she would like to take a plane ride. (Is the Pope Catholic?) We hopped on to a Piper Tri Pacer that was made of Wood and Canvas that the pilot told us at about 1500ft. Just my luck I had no parachutes for me and my Lady Fair lol.

The full-scale aircraft of the Piper Tri Pacer next to my model was though the kindness of the pilot to allow the photo back in 1999 Maine. That one is also built of wood and canvas. (except for the engine) πŸ˜„πŸ˜Œ.

Your Servant, CHRIS

well done - ciao da sandro

Sandro Glavina is an italian composer, named L'Uomo e L'Ombra. The choice of the name derives from the title of the album "L'uomo e l'ombra" of the band "Abstract Music Nuova Esistenza", an experimental group founded by Sandro Glavina together with his friends in the mid-70s.

In the period 2009-2021, L'Uomo e L'Ombra has done 80 albums. The compositions of Sandro Glavina are partly influenced by progressive rock. Sandro has developed a personal style with many experimentations and actualizations. He offers music beyond borders by intertwining different styles in crossover with each other. Prog, psychedelia, classical, post-rock, jazz, pop are some of the influences that dissolve in ambient atmospheres, citations of contemporary music and minimalist nuances. Sandro Glavina aka L'Uomo e L'Ombra plays the music using VSTI synthesizers, keyboards and adds some loops. Sandro isn't a professional musician, composes and plays music just for fun, but his works reach a good outcome, pleasant to listen. L'UOMO E L'OMBRA
