I’ve been hearing that same old bullshit most of my life. I was born a “praying” mantis but that has really never been my bag. My bag is metal & I like it heavy, fast and loud as hell. So for crying out loud, listen to your heart, be kind to others and if you feel the need to rock, rock hard or go home.
As the great Paul Westerberg once wrote, “It’s your life go live it.”
The great grandfather of a close family friend was a gentle, soft spoken old fellow. He would talk to us kids about growing up on the farm when he was a boy & those vivid stories were always charming & sweet. He often spoke of the gigantic “mutant cats” they raised & milked every morning and that the work was difficult but rewarding.
