What Happens When We Practice Santosha on the 7th? (mostly the music w/*UPDATED POST LINKS*) February 7, 2023

Posted by ajoyfulpractice in Music.

Peace and ease to all during this “Season of Non-violence” and all other seasons!

“One light blinking off and on
Blood of life in this town is gone
Lost all its pieces but the pawn
Tomorrow stopped coming with the dawn

In my dreams, I‘ve seen
Things that only seem to happen on the silver screen
When it‘s over there`s no walking out
‘cause I`ve been all they talk about
‘cause what ain‘t goin’ down
On Main Street

– quoted from “Main Street” written by Gordon Scott Kennedy, Trisha Yearwood, and Wayne Kirkpatrick; sung by Chris Gaines (a. k. a. Garth Brooks, b.  1962)

“She was a lonely widow woman
Hell bent to make it on her own
We were a thousand miles from nowhere
Wheat fields as far as I could see
Both needing something from each other
Not knowing yet what that might be”

– quoted from “Main Street” written by Patrick Alger, Sandy Mahl, Troyal Brooks; sung by Garth Brooks (b.  1962)
