Down Where The Spirit Meets The Bone

After all the vitriol in recent weeks here is a wee poem for you from Lucinda William's dad.

Have compassion for everyone you meet,
even if they don’t want it. What seems conceit, 
bad manners, or cynicism is always a sign 
of things no ears have heard, no eyes have seen.
You do not know what wars are going on
down there where the spirit meets the bone.

                                           Miller Williams

A poem which inspired Lucinda's 11th studio album from 2014 and one which I picked up recently and one which just about completes the set on the shelves.

It would have been useful to have had a copy of the second song for the Memphis v Nashville series.
Maybe next time around
