Save the country. Save yourself.
Save the country. Save the children. Up in heaven, Laura Nyro is watching. I saw Nyro on my 18th birthday. She thought you could be angry and happy at the same time; I feel that every day. Laura got really angry at you if you had "no gospel, no guts, no brain". Because you are missing life, work, relationships, ideas, growth,the separate magics of the West and the East, old verities--and joy.
Be inspired--or hang it up. If you're "blocked", head to your Lake District. Wait for a sign. Get your sign. Say thanks to Whoever.
Then come out of your woods swinging and angry: like a bad-ass preacher of the Church of the Final Thunder.
Like Laura Nyro.
Laura Nyro (1947-1997) wanted you to have fury in your soul.
