Liner Notes
Dedicated to all who have listened and made this music their own.
Deepest thanks to the nursing staff of the bone marrow transplant unit at UCSF, and to Wavy, Kathie, Lutie, Colleen, Barbara and my children, Max & Hannah, for emotional support.

I, like you,
love love, life, the sweet enchantment
of things, the celestial blue
countryside on January days.

But my blood boils
And I laugh with the eyes
That have known tears.

by Roque Dalton
(Poet from El Salvador)

January 27, 1942 - December 10, 1986 When Kate became ill with leukemia, she realized she would not record again for a long time, if ever. She began this retrospective project and finished it just before she became unable to work. Kate selected all the songs, the sequence and the photographs, and she wrote the notes for the cover.
This album is dedicated to the memory of Kate Wolf. We will all miss her.
