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.

John Anderson: The Long Black Veil

Filed under: Criminal, Gender, Questions, Song — Scottie @ 19:53

I am starting to have a dark path right now and not sure what to do.   On my other computer I have been wading through some dark political theories.   I was trying to keep up beat, but now admit I am starting to drown in dark places I know I must not go.  Those places lead to self harm.   Yet that is the world we live in and I must report on them.   I am tired.    We must win this fight.   Hugs


It is weird I have not felt this strong a need to cut myself in a long time.  I can not explain to those who have never felt the need to do that what it is counter intuitive to deal with hurt to then deliberately hurt your self, that it is so satisfying and so pleasing.  Or should I say so desperately disassociation?  The next day the shame and attempt to cover it it up goes full power.  I left all that behind then tRump got elected and his asshole cult started attacking people with joy.   So here I am again struggling to not do what I know is wrong but yet I am feeling driven to do.   Hugs

Long Black Veil by John Anderson & Merle Haggard Lyrics

This is the one I grew up on.   The only music allowed was the Johnny Cash type.   What a eye opener going into the military was for me.   Music was such a new thing.   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

Have we not looked away long enough.
