Being true to yourself

From 'Practical Man' by Pete Atkin/Clive James

'Cause when you die they're what you're found with
There are just some songs that are not for sale"

In a moment

In a moment you can store a lifetime's worth of beauty from a single glimpse of one wild flower In a moment you can store a winter's warmth from the love in just a passing touch In a moment your smile can make life seem worth living to a soul that's drifting without power In a moment your truth can ...

Knowing that you have others supporting you and wishing you well is a huge help. Writing this was triggered by a hope that countr...
