Just a really short note as we here at The Fur Peace Ranch get ready for our last weekend and concert here in Southeast Ohio. We are winding up our 19th year and are so blessed to have been able to make it this far and to share the music, the art of life as we see it… and the fellowship with our friends. We give praise for this!
Now some may have noted that we had a Presidential Election this week. Some are happy… some are sad. I’m not going to entertain a discussion about how you or I voted. This is America. I don’t care how you voted and how I cast my ballot is none of your business.
This about this… There will be another election in four years… we have them every four years.
This morning I read that Leonard Cohen passed last night. I realize there will come a time when we must all answer the call… that is a constant, a given. Still we take for granted that the things we love will last forever.
Nothing lasts forever. I found out yesterday that Premier Video, the last brick and mortar video shop in this area is closing this weekend. We live in an area where the internet is not yet fast enough to realistically download movies. Plus, Premier had a huge catalog of very old movies. I would hang out with my daughter… talk movies, new and old, with the folks behind the counter and return to my home in the country with wonders to behold.
indeed… nothing lasts forever. Sometimes what masquerades for progress is merely saying goodbye to a comfortable place.
As for Presidential Elections… there will be another one in four years.
There will never be another Leonard Cohen… or a Premier Video!
