THESE DAYS / RUNNING ON EMPTY / FOR A DANCER

"Don't confront me with my failures,
 I had not forgot to make" 
-Jackson Browne

 Jackson Browne wrote 'These Days' when he was 16. In the performance below, he was in his mid fifties.


The video contains two songs: 'These Days' and 'Running on Empty'. I recommend turning your phone off and closing your emails, just for eight minutes. Indulge in this. The payoff is huge. Jackson Browne is one of those artists who manages to influence everybody, yet somehow stay under the radar. But there's something about him, that voice, the delivery. It's profound. You'll find yourself in this. Just give it eight minutes, trust me. 

And then there's 'For a Dancer'. A beautiful song about life, and loss. I have an urge to write a lot about it, but then again; with Jackson Browne, you just have to listen, really listen, it's all that matters.

"I don't know what happens when people die, 
Can't seem to grasp it as hard as I try"-
Jackson Browne
