getting away

we spend our lives plotting our journeys from  now.
the media are fiends on feeding us news on what's going to happen; most of it is balderdash.
we pay to know of the future.

the passions  to deal with  reality and yet escape from it are constantly ripping at our sleeves.

country singer geo. jones is 80 years old today.
radio station wsm will be featuring his music tonight.
host eddie stubbs will be playing all george jones recordings from 8pm our time to 1am.
like jazz, today's country music is on the rocks, but it had its day, and george jones was an essential ingredient.
who would have bet on the possum making 80???
