    Default Running with the Devil / a lifetime of vh

    Found this over @ vhnd and it moved me.
    It's a long tale, but the ending caught me totally off guard as I have lived this tale in many ways with a few of my old childhood friends. I'll bet a few of you have experienced this as well. I tell my son often how fast life goes by and how important your choices will become. best CV

    "You can't go back home to your family, back home to your childhood ... back home to a young man's dreams of glory and of fame ... back home to places in the country, back home to the old forms and systems of things which once seemed everlasting but which are changing all the time back home to the escapes of Time and Memory."

    I always felt that Dave wrote 'Damn Good' on Skyscaper as an ode to these times.

    Nice. Growing up on the east coast at this time was somewhat different, but the feeling of the story is the same.

    Those were some great times!
    A little more volume in the headphones please.

    You know from a Chi-town perspective, 1977 was not so different as So Cali.
