In accordance with my interests & propensity for obsessive behavior, as well as the requests from those near JP to play his music and keep him in our thoughts, here's today's dose of John Prine, with preamble, story, and lyrics.

More light-hearted reality therapy from JP and Iris DeMent.

Live performance of 'In Spite of Ourselves'

Had several LP's, cassette and CD's of Prine...guess I'll put on shuffle mode. Hope he can overcome health obstacles- he's been through much in his life, so this may be riding into the sunset.

I've found no 'news' since yesterday A.M.

An early dose of JP; one which expresses a perspective, imo, of those who've been scorched enough by the proverbial Sun to challenge the perceived one-way nature of life and forgiveness, and Supreme Deities.

Loving some John Prine.

Still no new 'news' re. Mr. Prine, but it's Sunday here now, and I'm still up, so how 'bout what I'd call church with John Prine?

'Killing the Blues'

and,

'Down by the Side of the Road'

I'm outa' rep again, earlier and earlier in the day, H.G. I'll catch you later.

But yeah, I was thinking of those times of despair where many/some of us have found ourselves flipping the middle digit to the sky in anger over circumstances, and how no matter, most of us move on with "It is what it is."

I hear that tune as JP's more humorous summary of life as it pertains to those times.

The Cosmos has no end to its humor and/or irony in times of strife. Just have to have an open eye and ear, I think.

You take care.

The greatest thing about music is that it can mean something different to every listener.

To me that song and those lines express my own existential nihilism. Nothing has any meaning except what we choose to give it. There are no universal human truths.

A lot of religious folks would be offended at a person daring to forgive god, but to John Prine, he has as much a right to judge and forgive as god or anybody else does.

In the end, we'll just whistle and go fishing and none of it matters.

As a fairly firm Agnostic, with a path behind me involving a number of faiths, some of them impressive in experience, both mainstream and not, I've told folks for a long while now that IF there's a Judgement Day, I'll likely be sent where I'm sent, but if there's a Supreme Deity involved, before I get what ever assignment or marching orders, I intend to ask them to step outside for a poke or 2 in their chest or eye (assuming they have such things), 'cause if they WERE omniscient and omnipotent all this time, and let half the shit go down that has, then THEY have some explaining to do, too.

And yes, fishing is my poker game of personal inquiry with the Cosmos, wherein I get to ask what I deserve, if I'm worthy, and ice fishing in remote places in particular, allows me much meditation (as well as medication) time.

Here's hoping Johnny pulls through, and writes another 100 or 200 songs. For his benefit AND ours.
