All Things Must Pass

Posted by shanoah on September 23, 2008

The second half of your life, Sean? You don’t plan on making it past 76?

I’ll tell you what; Why don’t we plan on getting together and having an “I’m not dead yet” party in 2046? I think we’ll be free. Though I’d be very disappointed if I was still living or working where I am now.

I don’t know; I may feel different later on, but my family has a history of being fairly long lived, and I’ve always vaguely assumed I’d be included in that.

Could be wrong, but if I am, I’m not likely to know…

Oh, and I actually own “All Things Must Pass”, btw, Sean. It’s a great two disc set. Here’s another song from it:

The Art of Dying – George Harrison

Since the topic came up. And here are the lyrics. Would you believe that this song has Phil Collins playing the conga drums?

And here’s a song by Grace Slick you may like:

Let It Go – Grace Slick

This one also has some rather important lyrics.

So if each man has a different plan let 'em go let 'em go
You have a power all your own
There's a spirit child inside you ready for life and I know
It's just waiting to see how you will grow
And when the spirit feels the need to wander let it go

I always love listening to Grace Slick. Lather actually came to mind for todays post, but I’ve already posted that before
