Bruce Utah Phillips - May 15, 1935~May 23, 2008

Too many good people are doing too many good things for me to afford the luxury of being pessimistic. - U. Utah Phillips

Hymn song

You know I think if lady luck was blind
That old sun would never shine
And I believe if death really held a knife
We'd all be beggars of life

Chorus:
I believe if I lived my life again
I'd still be here with you
I believe if I lived my life again
I'd still be here with you

Sometimes I wish that I could close my eyes
To some things I don't want to see
But I believe if you lived your life again
You'd still be here with me

Chorus

I'll never see the ending of my mind
Everything will have a time
Why should I ask for things that I don't need
Or pretty lies to hide my greed

Chorus


=============================

Posted for those who were unable to attend Utah's memorial service in Nevada City today. It is with hesitation and the utmost respect of Utah's family that these are posted. At the Foundry after the memorial service I spoke with a friend who explained that a friend of Utah's is recovering from surgery back east in the rockie mtns. and couldn't attend today. Then on the drive home from the service, I figured being one of the volunteer editors for indybay, rather than email these images and only have them shared within the circles of people who might get the emailing of the photos taken; I'd share them here instead of opening of a photo account on a different website.

Utah~ R.I.P.

A couple of years ago, Utah Sent me this photo of himself enjoying a copy of the Community Alliance newspaper. I thought it was soooo funny that I wanted to share it with everyone. I will miss Utah, but will forever be inspired by his wit, music, and for the ability to tell a good story.

Thank you Steve for the photo from the memorial service.
