It is an easy bliss.
Coming back to the world we are part of right now is constantly horrifying, heartbreaking on a daily basis. We are down yet one more great artist, another seminal voice of a generation fast shuffling off. We mourn horrified a vast sea of innocents at the premeditated hand of constitutionally endorsed friendly fire. Where are we heading as a species? Who are we becoming as the baton is being passed and the earth is turning?
It can feel hopeless. Days when I feel helpless I only want to find the deepest cave as far into the woods as you can go. And take Tom and his mate Jack with me *sigh*.
Then, again, I will hear a familiar voice.
“…. But I’ll keep this world from dragging me down
Gonna stand my ground
And I won’t back down”
Oh Tom Petty, the world dims today.
