Ever since I was 12-years-old, Edgar Allan Poe was a favorite writer. I was so smitten at that age that I had my mother make a black cape for me (for some reason I thought Poe wore a cape) and I would fill a notebook with some pretty bad gothic graveyard poetry. My mother was amused but my father thought I had a couple of “loose screws.”
Still, October puts me in mind of Mr. Poe. This song is a small tribute I wrote.
Be safe. Be careful.

This song is my tribute to Joe Pass. I took a lesson or two with the great Joe when I was in L.A. in 1975 for a couple of months.
I had a two-month gig backing up a folk singer there (sort of a Jim Croce thing). I didn’t like Los Angeles and had depressive episodes both times I tried it. Maybe it’s just me.
The title is Latin for “time flies”. And it does. Sadly, too quickly.
