I just had a hair raising few weeks here as a close friend had a car accident and within 2 days was on a ventilator. It is shocking how things can change for a person in the blink of an eye. We all were so worried we would lose him, and he was of course completely unaware of what was happening to him,
He made an amazing recovery and is now off the ventilator and in a rehabilitation hospital recovering his strength and walking with a walker to gain his full mobility back but it really makes you value the gift of life and good health. We take it for granted so easily.
He is just realizing how ill he was and it has shifted his world view and how mortal he is. What an experience to go through.
I performed in Vancouver last Saturday with my daughter Beth, we sing as Two Tall Women (lol ), and we sang my song 'The Human Spirit' and dedicated it to him
The chorus goes like this
The human spirit is a bird in a cage
The human spirit does not wilt with age
But rises up again like words on a page
The human spirit is the glory and the rage
The human spirit dwells inside you and me
The human spirits burning bright so we see
The human spirit it takes flight to be free
The human spirit it will will it to be
We Will Be Free
Stay well everyone
