The Tiger's Eye: Life's like Sancrit read to a pony...

Life's like Sancrit read to a pony...

I know it violates one of the sacred tenets of blogging “When in doubt POST A VIDEO” but this one is extraordinarily special to me.
A number of years ago my best friend died shortly after a bout with cancer. It happened shortly after Lou Reed had also experienced loss in 2 friends from cancer.
His response was to write a brilliant album “Magic and Loss” which told of his dealing with life, death and our universal quandary of how to make sense of it all. I do not share much philosophy with Lou but I agree with his last statement in this song.
“What’s good? Life’s good, but not fair at all”.
This song got me thru much pain and hurt.
