Sad sad news this morning, it appears that Tim Smith, the leader of the starry skies has left this world. What sad news, what a beautiful man he was, is and always will be. Besides the fact that he was leader of one of the finest bands ever, that his music touched so many people in such a profound and wonderful way, that his music brought so many people together, Tim Smith was one of the nicest people to just sit and spend good time with, Tim Smith was just a most decent decent decent human, the most decent of them all.
I have desired to go
Where springs not fail,
To fields where flies no sharp and sided hail
And a few lilies blow.
And I have asked to be
Where no storms come,
Where the green swell is in the havens dumb,
And out of the swing of the sea.
