appreciating go with the flow

I wanted to share some comments I greatly appreciate regarding Clyde Sanborn’s book, GO WITH THE FLOW. My thanks to all who are enjoying this tribute.

“What an amazing book! I could not keep away from it in the post office parking lot; at the VA lot awaiting an appointment and here at the river next to the lamps going thru pages laughing, scratching my head in wonder, crying especially at the end. Bex's poems were wondrous. As was it all! Thank you thank you! I thought all those years were just Normal....I am re reading it just can't keep away from it…I love the book so much. I wonder what other readers that didn't know Clyde think of it. I think even they will find it interesting.”
—Michael Clough

“It's a great print and well woven together. It brought his presence back in a big way.”
—Dennis ‘Bex’ Bexell

“What would Clyde have thought in his procrustean Zen?”
—Paul Hansen

“I just received my order – it looks fantastic!”
—Erik Ambjor

“I just had some time to sit down with it and enjoyed it immensely. I'm learning a lot about Clyde's early life.”
—Janet Saunders

“Having known Clyde Sanborn in his heyday as La Conner, Washington's beloved Zen rummy I recommend another of Allen Frost's Good Deed Rain books "In the Valley of Mystic Light: An Oral History" by Claire Swedberg and Rita Hupy which is about the rural community of farmers, fishermen and artists 75 miles North of Seattle that Clyde lived among and socialized with for a decade in the afterglow of the 1960's when being a nature poet and/or a mystic painter (sometimes both) was still something of a Northwest tradition and a viable, though hardscrabble, lifestyle. Clyde Sanborn could be as dry as Shelly Berman and wet as Crazy Guggenheim (Frankie Fontaine) all at once. He was a good boon companion and this a fine tribute to the fond memories so many of us who knew him have.”
—Charlie Krafft

"It's just wonderful! I am greatly enjoying the various stories and recollections. It really brought back the feeling of those times as I read. Really, it's a gem of a compilation, you've done a stellar job. Thank you so much."
—Jan Sanborn

“This is a gem of a book, both a tribute to Clyde Sanborn and poetry, but also an appreciation of an American lifestyle that embraces freedom and nature. The graphics and the poetry form a dance that you won't want to miss. Good work for Good Deed Rain publishing and its editor Allen Frost. The book is a journey and a delight.”
