People who have near death experiences all talk about a peaceful, euphoric , bright light enveloping them. From the moment we are conceived, we are moving towards that light. This is my heels diggin' in, I don't wanna' go, reluctant journey, into the light. Stephen

Everybody Hurts

The son of an online "friend" whose blog I have followed for a long time, attempted suicide.  I cannot imagine the pain and confusion.  Having 2 sons myself, if I could talk to my friend's son, I wouldn't say anything.  I would just play this song.  I cried the first time I heard it. Other times as well.  Including now.

That song has always affected me the same way, Stephen. At the time the song first came out my wife of 37 years and I were going thru a rough patch and were separated briefly. I took solace in that song as well...A good pick.
