Pat's Weekly Diary: 7/6/2020
Monday morning and we’re hoping you all had a safe and Happy Fourth of July. I wish there were some news to report but there isn’t. No news… is supposed to be good news right? I don’t think so. Anyway, I sit here trying to think of something profound or witty to say. Maybe I could rattle off some more songs about ‘waiting’ or ‘nothing’ or… I don’t know. How about this… for Independence Day… my favorite song about ‘freedom’. Go Google it if you don't know it. Written in 1964. Bruce Springsteen does a great live cover of this (in my humble opinion) truly great song. Especially the last verse of Bob Dylan’s “Chimes of Freedom”

“Tolling for the aching ones whose wounds cannot be nursed
For the countless confused, accused, misused, strung-out ones an' worse
An' for every hung-up person in the whole wide universe
An' we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing”
