it's not easy

it's not easy - by five for fighting

"it's not easy" is a fantastic song that is sooooooo easy to relate to -- especially if you can momentarilly project yourself into shoes of superman.

when i lived in tallahassee, there was a guy named tim simpkins who used to jog around town in all sorts of costumes. ..he must have worked for, or with, the local costume shop (or something).

you could be having a bad (or boring) day, just driving down tennessee street, and there would be tim: jogging, waving, smiling. ..he'd be dressed up as a clown, or as a chicken, or as batman... but he was best known for his "superman" getup.

when tim passed away, it was tallahassee's loss. ..tim, we need more supermen like you.

  1. Great song...one of my alltime faves.
    After listening to it, I clicked on "100 Years" and spent a few minutes reflecting.
    Thanks for the memory jog.
    xoxoxo, me

  2. Hi, Clare!

    Funny, I did the same thing. Nothin' like a little re-Flection to give us another angle from which to view the scene.

    :) Love, Lenny
