From the end of Bob Dylan's song, "The Ballad of Frankie Lee,"

"Well the moral of this story. The moral of this song, is: Simply that one should never be, where one does not belong. So if you see your neighbor carrying something, help him with his load. And don't go mistaking Paradise, for that home across the road."
For as R. E. M. sings, "Everybody Hurts."
Buddhists say that no matter who you are, life is suffering---we ALL have our crosses to bear.

This is an instrument played a lot by the Roma Gypsies, they call a "Cymbalom." It is in the dulcimer family I am told.
It is an instrument where "strings" are struck my "hammers." It takes some getting used to, but it can be a beautiful instrument when play well. I love the slow opening part of this piece. It is full of sweet pathos.

I am just gum-smacked!

Theo's Happy Memory # 1

0430 Military time, 8 year old Theo would wake up, clean up, put on his dungarees, and fill up with whatever Mama bought that week.  By 0515 get to the corner for the farm truck to come by. Everyone there was speaking another language, yet they came to know him well. Theo was from an old mold, they said. They all remembered starting work so young in "the Old Country."
