Gordon Lightfoot – The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald

My favorite song by him.  It sent chils up my spine when I first heard it.  It scared the poop out of me when I was in the Navy.  It made me feel adventurous in the Army.  Now in my older age it makes me feel discouraged and like I am fighting a future I can not change, one too powerful to stop, yet I must not give in until it takes me down.   Hugs.

Abba – Dancing Queen

Today I am struggling with pain and remembering better times when I moved with a lot less pain.   I loved the disco / dance music of the 70’s /80’s.   I have my memories.   Best wishes.   Hugs

Disturbed – The Sound Of Silence

Filed under: Music and Videos, Music Video, My Life and Rants, Song, Songs and Music — Scottie @ 20:28

I am tired.  Very tired tonight.  I woke up at 1:30 AM with cramps in my feet and calves, muscle contractions driven by my spine damage affecting the nerves to my lower legs and feet.  I want to be angry at what the chief law officer of my country has done that makes a mocker of everything I served in the military to protect.  I want to be angry.  But instead right now I am crying.   For my self?  For my country?   I just read of the most horrible abuse being done to a minority population in China, and I think my country’s leader has praised the ones responsible for that.  What have we become?  How will history view us, what did we do to prevent the atrocities?  How did we accept them and allow it to progress?  When did mass separation of children from their parents to cause them distress as a tool become OK with the “greatest nation on earth”?  I am tired, good night.  Maybe there will be something, a small place in my dreams I can find peace, find comfort.   Be well, take care of each other, it is all we really have.   Sometimes I think it is closer to our Seasons In The Sun than ever before.   Hugs

If you do not watch this or you do not react, then you are dismissing our democracy and letting it die.  This is what the whole tRump presidency is about.  Gods help us but we are about to slide into 1940’s Germany territory, and we do not have friends to stop us as tRump has attacked each one of them.   Hail Putin.   Hugs
