They say it's better to bury your sadness in a graveyard or garden that waits for the spring to wake from its sleep and burst into green.
I never camped as a kid, but I really got into camping and sleeping outdoors. I've also done some amazing river floats in New Mexico and Idaho. It's peaceful and awesome.
I went right from wunderkind to washed up. Old. Been around too long. That's just the way I feel. That's my internal dialogue.
To me, a political song is also a personal song. Most political activism has been driven by empathy for other people and the desire for a world that's less divisive. Even if songs aren't overtly political, they can make a listener more empathetic.
