    “Don’t Let It Bring You Down”
    Old man lying
    by the side of the road
    With the hummers rolling by,
    Blue moon sinking
    from the weight of the load
    And the buildings scrape the sky,
    Cold wind ripping
    down the alley at dawn
    And the morning paper flies,
    Dead man lying
    by the side of the road
    With the daylight in his eyes.
    Don’t let it bring you down
    It’s only castles burning,
    Find someone who’s turning
    [[Latin “to turn around” is root of our “conversation”–hold the space
    for the conversations, listen, then speak out: from conversari to associate with, frequentative of convertere to turn around]]e
    And you will come around.
    Blind man running
    through the light
    of the night
    With an answer in his hand,
    Come on down
    to the river of sight
    And you can really understand

    Here’s one of my favorite Neil Young tunes and just about the way I feel these days- :
    “I hear some people been talking me down.
    Bring up my name, pass it round.
    They don’t mention the happy times.
    They do their thing, I do mine.
    Ooh baby that ‘s hard to change
    I can’t tell them how to feel.
    Some get strong, some get strange.
    Sooner or later it all gets teal
    Walk on.”
