How I feel about it all: melancholymelancholy
Soundtrack: Johnny Cash, Roy Acuff, others - Will the Circle be Unbroken
"How well I have learned that there is no fence to sit on between heaven and hell. There is a deep, wide gulf, a chasm, and in that chasm is no place for any man."

I was in my car this morning when I heard the news. I'm sure the people outside the laundromat thought I was crazy.

Another hero is gone, and the world feels so very much smaller.

Go to your God, Johnny Cash. Your June has been waiting for you.

I was never a huge follower of Johnny Cash but one thing is for certain, the man was real. He most definitely be missed.

And "Ring of Fire" is one of the greatest songs ever recorded.

Part of my childhood is gone

With the passing of Johnny Cash it feels as if another tether to my childhood has slipped away. I can recall with precise clarity hearing his music waft from the old console record player - "Folsum Prison Blues" and "I Walk the Line" mostly. My Mom and Dad LOVED him and my beloved Grandpa could play "Folsum Prison Blues" on the harmonica. I am so smiling right now, remembering something suddenly I'd long forgot - riding the combine with him and him singing, "And it burns burns burns, the ring of fire..." What a sweet, sweet memory. Waylon Jennings and now Johnny. May they both know peace and thank God they left us their music.
