  • Steven Fleming Dear Michael...my condolences on Batty's passing.

    I remember a particular performance of his at Challis Stream. Must have been about 1988. Barry danced so expressively. I was nervous for him as he balanced at the pinnacle of a stack of boxes.

    Perhaps this serves as a metaphor for his life.
    Always pushing limits, expressing a truer self and maintaining his balance while providing an example for others.

    Thanks Barry... for sharing your life well lived.

  • David HB Drake Dear Michael,

    I just heard about Barry's passing...

    I'm doing a standing ovation in honor of such an incredible life and sorry to see the curtain come down.

    I treasure the times I came to Chalicestream and got to work with you and Barry (especially now that I'm fat and old).

    The last time I danced professionally (in public) was in a piece Barry did that Betty commissioned after he had won a life-achievement award. The song "Chalicestream Stream" one of my CDs was written on the original outdoor stage.
    Fine memories.

    Hope you are doing OK and if there is anything I can actually do to help, let me know. If there is a memorial, I may try to make it pending gigs, distance, and weather.

    Otherwise, I remember him showing me a hill above the pond where you had planted some trees where he told me he would someday rest. It's a peaceful image and peace to you.
