Do We Just Want to be.... Numb?

I feel smothered and encumbered and defeated and drawn
Disappointed, over-extended and frustrated and shaken
This over-giving , over-loving, this care taking goes on
With no chance of intermission.
I’ll be checked out, I’ll be gone

Have to remove myself from sensation

Here comes the feeling
I run from the feeling and reach for the drug
Can’t sit with this feeling
I’d rather be flying and comfortably numb…

The woman has had eyes, ears and sense of her self since she was a kid… in no small part because her parents (Al & Georgia) were educators and were so hip to what really works in child development. She read like a fiend, saw that the musical direction she was headed in as a younger teen was NOT where she wanted to go, blew off a “sure thing,” took a “sabbatical” at 15, came to LA at 17 (working with a small posse of coaches and teachers), and gave the world the biggest selling album ever recorded by a female at 20, as well as heaps of insight and wisdom carried back from India and Nepal ever since. She has been one of my most revered and truly life-changing “instructors” for almost 20 years.
