"When I was young, it seemed that life was so wonderful,
a miracle, oh it was beautiful, magical. And all the birds in the trees, well they'd be singing so happily, joyfully, playfully watching me. Then they send me away to teach me how to be sensible, oh logical, responsible, practical. And they showed me a world where I could be so dependable, clinical, oh, intellectual, cynical. There are times when all the world's asleep, the questions run too deep for such a simple man. Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned I know it sounds absurd but please tell me who I am." ________________________ 1998. We hiked up onto the Corno Grande. Paradise.
