Thank you, Doobie Brothers!
There's a healing in those guitars
And a spirit in the song
No matter what condition your rhythm is in
The message goes on and on
Music is the doctor
Makes you feel like you want to
Listen to the doctor
Just like you ought to
Music is the doctor of my soul
That song really says it all. I was feeling yet again a little better today so a friend came by and drove me to Fairfax to see Big Brother and the Holding Company. I have to say, Big Brother was terrific and hearing them really did make me feel so much better - music really is the doctor. Why, during Blind Man I was able to stand up and rock out. Nobody who saw me as late as three days ago would have believed it! It was so good hearing them play and hanging out in the band room with everyone - I had a blast! 90+ minutes of joy. Woo hoo! I love all of you: Peter, Sam, Dave, Tom and Cathy!!! And Joan, Joanee, Karen, Elyse, Lisa, Jessica, and Martha. What a blessed day I had there in the redwoods!
