March 9,

I spoke with dad yesterday, he plans to send me an e-mail message to post in a day or two so stay tuned. His health is steady, his first week at home has gone by and he has settled into his new routine nicely. The trick now will be to pace himself, I'm sure now that he has become a bit stronger his temptation will be to over do it, who wouldn't.

Thanks again to everyone for the continued love and support, it has made a huge difference to all of us. The cards and letters of support dad has received from all over the world is a testament to the great work he has done over the many years.

As for myself, I am going back to work tomorrow. Don't fret, I will continue to maintain and update the blog with some frequency. There are a number of benefits and projects planned for the upcoming year so please do check in once in awhile. I am also working on a Internet based Utah Phillips archive. I know there are lot of folks out there with stuff they have collected over the years in association with my dad. My hope is that it will become a project everyone will want to participate in. Please do send me am e-mail if you have any questions.

Thank you Duncan. Your web site is looking good and we are glad to read any news on your dad. We are the Venice/Santa Monica chapter of Food Not Bombs and we met your dad the last time he played at McCabe's Guitar Shop in Santa Monica.

I'm sitting here listening to one of Utah's CD's and decided to check online to see how he is doing. I had no idea he was having health problems, but am glad to hear he is recovering well. Utah is by far one of my all time favorite people. Whenever I list "heroes", he is right there on the top of the list....

So neat that you are keeping this blog. I'm happy I stumbled across it today. Count me in as a frequent reader!

Sending well-wishes to Utah!!
