“Hope sees the invisible, Feels the intangible, And achieves the impossible. Some of life's joys arrive serendipitously, with no calculations, elaborate plans, preconceived notions or great expectations. Just let the beauty happen on its own accord. Learn to be present like wild creatures. like young children, wild creatures don't live in hope. they too live in the real world, the present. they have much to teach us about the first principles of living, hopelessly: Be generous. Value your time. Live naturally. Learn to be present in your own way- meditation, exercise, walks in the woods, whatever works for you. Hope and hopelessness are both about the future. When you are present, neither has any hold on you. Feel better, Get better, Be better. You now truely know what's important. Play on sweet prince.. you've always made a joyful noise, and we are all enriched by its sound, the sound of you,my friend.....Enjoy Today!!!!!!”

"Hey Snake; I first heard Cristo Redentor at party in 1970. I got it the next day. I remember smoking the peace pipe and listening to Capruange over and over. I was just really impressed by the way you paced that solo, tension and release baby! I used a lot of your phrasing and those weird inside out bends in my playing and earned a nickname "Dr. Voodoo" all thanks to you. Saw you at the Golden Bear in Huntington Beach in the seventies you had a black guy playing cooper drums and I remember thinking "What the fuck is he doing with both hands on the neck". Rock on Brother."
