Nobody knows you when you’re down and out

frizztext: I like to play blues guitar and sometimes I sat down on a street and played on my Gibson guitar or listened to the music of other guitar players visiting Germany, coming from England or USA or other parts of the world. Feeling blue I always noticed the pigeons – and I adored them, though walking, they could take their wings for a ride up up and away…
a few times in my life I had to sit down on the ground, because my knees got weak, so as my mother had done her suicide or as I had to leave New York again or as I had a heart attack (visiting the city Wuppertal); but then always I was eye to eye with those other animals: birds, little dogs, cats – and I lost my sadness and decided to rise again; just as Paul McCartney sang: Blackbird: take your broken wings and learn to fly… – animals often helped me; they have a philosophical perseverance – and they believe, they will overcome πŸ™‚

  5. Had a wait a day or two to comment. . . so timely for me, and true. I had to do the same at the swimming hole my dog loved the best. Two mourning doves landed beside me and stayed for the longest time. I love to wake to their call. Cheered me and decided ‘to rise again.’ When my father was in heart surgery it was hummingbirds. And countless times, my dog. A moving post frizz. Thanks for sharing.
