Wonderful song from my latest find, excellent local(ish) group from sarf London!

Though I hate to say it, beautiful scenery from what is my spiritual home, this area really is God's own country! This is the place for to forget your woes and reconnect with Mother Earth.

Whilst going through the painful job of sorting out my parents house following my father's death some months ago I came across one of my mother's poetry books which was book-marked at this poem, it was quite bitter sweet reading it, but given the poet it goes quite aptly with the scenery in the video!

 

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rage at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

It's a hard task

... sorting out what to keep and what to let go!

It's hard to give away anything that reminds us of a happy memory, and obviously we cannot keep everything, but it is those memories that keep them alive in our hearts.
