    I happened to be watching the daily news this morning and these poems and songs came to mind.
    I said to my wife; “Do you remember the game we use to play called, ‘Follow The Leader’? It is probably unknown to today’s children. Hopefully they will choose the right leader to follow. His name, by the way, is Jesus.

    I also hope that they have the right things to believe in.
    Poems, Prayers and Promises by John Denver

    I just learned today that the best creative drummer and song writer; Neil Peart, of Rush, died January 7, 2020 of brain cancer (Glioblastoma). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neil_Peart#Death

    One of the best Progressive Rock bands, Rush, with only three members.



    Losing It

    The dancer slows her frantic pace
    In pain and desperation
    Her aching limbs and downcast face
    Aglow with perspiration

    Stiff as wire, her lungs on fire
    With just the briefest pause
    The flooding through her memory
    The echoes of old applause

    She limps across the floor
    And closes her bedroom door...

    The writer stares with glassy eyes
    Defies the empty page
    His beard is white, his face is lined

    And streaked with tears of rage

    Thirty years ago, how the words would flow
    With passion and precision
    But now his mind is dark and dulled
    By sickness and indecision

    And he stares out the kitchen door
    Where the sun will rise no more...

    Some are born to move the world
    To live their fantasies
    But most of us just dream about
    The things we'd like to be
    Sadder still to watch it die
    Than never to have known it
    For you, the blind who once could see
    The bell tolls for thee...

    The bell tolls for . . . .

    For you, the blind who once could see
    The bell tolls for thee...
    The bell tolls for . . . .
