Message: 
Erik, I am so glad that you're back
for a encore at Gathering V. You are
a unique and generous man!

I urge all attendees to begin now
volunteering to pick Erik up
at the airport in Austin.

Look for the diminutive fellow
in the bright red t-shirt
that says DANMARK. Last year...

Joe Gilchrist and I walked through
a crowded Austin-Bergstrom airport with
no description whatsoever to go by

yelling at the top of our lungs,
ERIK THE DANE! ERIK THE DANE!
until our faces were crimson

and spittle was rocketing from
our lips. Wary, bug-eyed travellers
moved aside, looking at us like we

were mad Vikings about to take over
the entire state of Texas as soon as
our vaunted Danish leader arrived.

Erik is an encyclopedia of knowledge
about recordings by Mickey Newbury,
Jimmy Webb, and others,

and can talk a blue streak without
ever taking a breath, it seems...
his passion providing his oxygen.

So, volunteer now to pick Erik up.
I guarantee you will remember it
the rest of your life.

It'd be best if you have no identifying
clues, a very loud voice, and be willing
to scare the poop out of strangers.

Hahaha...wasn't that a time!
