Music: Houdini Blues, Kristin Hersh
Rifling through my old photo files, i found this. I took this about a month or so after my spinal injury in Hawai’i back in 2004. This was me on my lanai – unable to walk more than a block or so at a time unless i had that damned cane.
This song meant a lot to me at the time – because i wanted nothing more than to be free of that tiny little apartment, the backbrace, the cane and my life…
“Oh no, don’t you put me in that box
you know what you can do with those locks
bet your life i’ll come crawling out again
you’ll have to deal with me then
you’ll hear me in the wind…”
