Your sentence that it "chills" you to think what state you'd be in mentally if you hadn't found HW brought tears to my eyes because that's how I and many of us feel. And the differences we may have with the world are understood by others here. There's nothing like the heartfelt understanding of other people to help us 'heal". Maybe we can't cure our pain or other conditions, but healing is a different thing. We can do that. The forum was well-named.
And I may not know the music, but that's ok! New things help us all learn. Thing is I have an old dial up connection, so you tube and other "modern" site are pretty much out of it for me - especially any videos.
Pete - I've always forgotten to mention I did look up your brother's website awhile back. Some of my relatives came from the Big Easy, so I couldn't believe the photo with Al Hirt! Way cool! Now Inifinite probably won't know who that is!
(Pete will have to explain about
his brother, who's a musician)
