I like to listen to this when I need to put things into perspective, like at the time of this posting as I have recently had to deal with the losses of a couple of people back in January and February of this year, a nephew due to an illness and a friend to suicide.
Also taking into fact that I am not getting any younger and I am dealing with some health issues that I would rather not have to deal with but doing my best to face things head on and make the best of it and keep a brave face about things.
Add to that it gives me time to reflect a bit on those times when I was a real SOB towards some folks. Regardless of whether they deserved it or not.
Also serves to remind me that I am not dead yet and I gotta keep on living until there is no more life left in me. And God willing I hope that is a long time in the offing.
