Poem: Winding Journey

Winding Journey

by Angie Mack Reilly

I’m on the winding journey
“Wine, Ding.”
“Whine. Ding!”
“Why in Ding?”
Meandering
Lingering
Wallowing
Swallowing
Opening
Preserving
Observing
Fancy-ing
Swerving
A little left
A little right
Wondering
Wandering
Wondering when wandering
Wandering when wondering
Exploring
Documenting
Winding
Sometimes tight
Sometimes loose
The winding journey
belongs to the pioneers.

Angie Mack Reilly and Alex van der Tuuk have been working together to preserve the Paramount Records legacy since 2004.  With Alex in the Netherlands and Angie in Grafton,  they have had to share thousands, (if not millions) of emails over the years.  Together, they have accomplished much.  Finding out what happened to the Father of Ragtime Guitar after he recorded for Paramount was one of them.
