We try to understand things and try to make sense of everything,
but it's not so easy.
I don't think it's our job to UNDERSTAND.
Our job is to DEAL with it.
Or as David Donald Guard once told an interviewer....
=> "I deal the cards I've been dealt, best way I know how."
(this was AFTER Dave quit THE KINGSTON TRIO, back in 1961)
When a person gets hungry....they eat.
When a person gets thirsty.....they drink.
When a person gets lonely......they seek out other people.
When a person gets DEPRESSED....
It is their SOUL telling them there is something MISSING
from their life.
Their soul is talking to them.
They are NOT being FULFILLED !!!
Truth be told, EMOTIONAL PAIN is just as serious as PHYSICAL PAIN,
maybe even more-so, and should NOT be IGNORED.
MUSIC is a tremendous antidote and great HEALER for emotional pain.
But if you suffer from depression or know anybody who does...
please seek help. DO NOT IGNORE IT !!!
The reason I bring this up is because I have dealt with a few
suicides the past 2 years, including an attempted suicide six
weeks ago. In ALL cases, the people involved
suffered from EMOTIONAL PAIN.
Sorry to be preachy...
but I thought it important.
(I won't make a habit of this, I promise) Meanwhile....
I wish everybody to be well + to be as happy as they could be.
