I am in such a state of mental anguish over the recent events both abroad and at home that I almost didn’t even bother to post this episode, initially intended to arrive a full week back. I remain more thankful each succeeding turn of the calendar that I was lucky to have come of age when I did. It still felt that anything was possible when High School was finished in 1974, even if like me you didn’t have a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out of. I’ve always been a stubborn optimist, and for over 43 years married to an even more stubborn pessimist, but even she agrees that we thought the human species would be a hell of a lot more evolved by the time we reached retirement age. While technology has certainly advanced appreciably, humanity, society and sanity seem perched on the precipice of total collapse. I am fortunate enough to surround my psyche with music, and hope that somehow this show helps to soothe the spirit of others. Thanks for listening.
