R.I.P. Davy Jones

His heart was in great shape according to his last physical, but for some reason it just stopped.

    was just listening, and remembering my very first melancholy mix tape – on 8 track, no less, made just as the summer had ended and i had returned to junior high – not a particulalry happy time for me at all. anyway, the three songs i especially remember from this long-ago period of my history were the beatles’ ‘eleanor rigby’, a wonderfully sad song by roger whittaker (yes, roger whittaker!) called ‘i don’t believe in if anymore’ and, of course, ‘shades of gray.’ i can laugh now at the memory of that 13-or-so year-old kid singing along… ‘when the world and i were young, just yesterday…’ i find i can sing this with a little more credibility now, just turned 49, and i still find it one of the finest, saddest songs ever written. you’ve always had such excellent taste in poignant music! much love, always.

    • Haha I was about 16 yrs old singing that same line..I was surprised when I heard this song recently and it had held up so well. It’s truly beautiful and profound, and must have been our first lesson on non-dualism!
