Dang ya Joe, it's stuff like this that'll bring a tear to me eye.


LOL, "t" is so close to "r" I am sooo glad I proofed it via eye

because the spell check would have never caught it!

Beyond the nature of the gentle soul... being a hero that changes lives and lives his own life,

it is a stark reminder, to me at least, that the corporate-pharm-paid physicianery (when i used to be a kid they had folks called doctors but now for the last decades all i have ever found were corporate-sponsored drug dispensers - 'never mind the root cause, just take some of these or if you don't, the insurance company will drop you) will never heal the world. The pills wold have killed him by now. 15 prescriptions, sheesh. He saved his own life and improved dozens more.

Bless you, harmonica man. What a great story and lesson, and person.

An anchoring purpose. Nothing will kill you deader than being adrift, sometimes even before deadness has been achieved. World-class orchestra conductors tend to go and go and live forever (you wish some wouldn't), what with a never-ending stream of music to shape and musicians to push around.

An example (Stokowski knew better than to interfere with Peter Lloyd's gorgeous opening solo, too):
