a song. sung to the dying.
maybe, if i were to die in a minute. to hear "amazing grace" would
be awe-ing. a person may be able to work their 'craft with song.

amazing grace, how sweet the sound,
that saved a wretch, like me.
i once, was lost, but now, i'm found,
was blind, but now, i see.

i respect baptist choirs in that respect. hymns are beautiful when
the people singing have jesus in their hearts.

call me a believer. in music.

i don't mean that music is Thee solution for the terminally ill.
it's a personal appreciation i have.

a difficult path.
may you walk with a sure step.
'love in action' is a beautiful way to live.

take care and fare well.
