Levon Helm, 1941-2012: R.I.P.

Levon Helm has left us, a victim of the cancer that has afflicted him for over a decade.

Here's Levon singing with The Band:

Here's Levon toward the end, when the cancer gave him a bit of a break, and he got his voice back:

Be at peace, Levon.

Yeah, Levon was at the top of my mind when posting yesterday, too.

Anyway, the reason I'm here is that we'd like to invite you to become one of our Authors in Alexandria. This invitation has been extended to you by email as well.

In addition to posting on anything you wish, as you desire, you may of course mirror posts you've already written from here or elsewhere to gain a different or additional audience or for any other reason that appeals to you.

If you think you might be interested, let me know and I'll forward our formal invitations for you to look over and return, if you decide to proceed.

Come contribute your perspectives and opinions to the ongoing conversations there or, even better, start some new - and different - ones of your own.

I look forward to hearing from you.
