Re: John Stewart's 80's wanderlust
So he did live in NY for a short while?
I though they had a home in Mill Valley right after the KT-maybe even a house he initially shared with Julie? There was some mention by either John or Buffy that it was haunted. It inspired parts of the song "Signals To Ludi".
After all those "Kansas" songs, he could have moved out here for a while. He probably would have stopped writing them when he saw what a big, flat, dusty nothing burger it is.
Joe B's answer is the most correct. Buffy, and John to a lesser extent, were followers of the Swami. Unfortunately, the Virginia climate caused him horrible problems with his asthma. The NY period was pretty brief before they moved back to Novato.
I don't think John and Buffy ever owned a house until the last place they lived before he died. They lived in 3-4 places during the ten years I worked with him. All were rentals.
Was Sri Swami related to Roseanne Roseanneadana?
John and Buffy were devotees of Sri Swami Satchidananda and moved to Buckingham VA near Yogaville Satchidananda Ashram in 1993. John also was a guest at some New Age retreat in upstate NY around this time where "they made him take the picture down"
