I'm Still Alive

Thanks to PJ for that line, and yes the song has helped me (assuming you even know what I'm talking about with Eddie & company).

The point is whatever shit you throw in my direction, I will get over it.

Yes, I had a perfect childhood - I never got beaten up, really - well, I never had to go to hospital, apart from the few occasions - like the time my skull was fractured.

My parents were always there for me, in an invisible way and my 'friends' were always there for me, except when they were busy doing something more important.

It was very interesting to move house every 2 years and assume that all people lived out of cardboard boxes as we did.

I really enjoyed falling in love for it to be snatched away in an instant.

Think I'm fucked up?

I would never say that - as I was priveleged enough to sing with the Soweto Choir at the Llangollen International Eisteddfod many years ago, and I feel blessed.

Having heard their stories afterwards, my dramas mean nothing in the overall scheme of things. I can't even contemplate being in their situation.

(and this is the one and only time you will see this)

GOD bless you and that is only to those that believe ....

Yeah, it does put things into perspective. Like Ladysmith and the Bhundu Boys, good things can come from bad if you just stick up your middle finger and say "Fuck you, I won't do what you tell me". I quote, of course, but then I'm lucky enough to have all I need.

Thought for the Day. A wise man (a yank ex heroin addict as it happens) once said to me: "God can be whatever you want it to be. If your God is television, you can say you believe in God." And you know, in a very real sense .... (fade out to theme from Match of the Day)
