Thanks for the memories

To the editor,

It’s the day after the insurrection on Capitol Hill. I took a break from the news and walked along the River Trail with my Thursday goal of picking up a Telegraph at the Rec Center. Returning home, I was sitting with the Telegraph listening to NPR, reading “Top Shelf” by Chris Aaland on the breaks.

I was moved to tears remembering seeing and hearing Tony Rice in a small coffee shop in Nederland back in the day, and so appreciating Chris’ regular reports to us. Thank you. Thank you. I need this connection right now.

I also appreciated very much your article on Phil (Vigil, Telegraph, Dec. 31, 2020). This local reportage is one of the things that makes Durango special.  

With much appreciation.
