(I’m using a suggested song from my brother, a kindred spirit.  This song fits the title so well.  Day 190…)

This is a nine-minute song by Explosions in The Sky.  No words, and it doesn’t need any..

It’s that opening note of a song
The words haven’t fully developed
But the harmony is there.
Babies understand.
We lose this knowledge as adults
New consciousness
As precious as life.
The best gift of being alive
Is knowing you are alive

Dreams freeze without morning.
The warmth of tomorrow ignites the heart with hope
Otherwise
It’s just out cold
Stray dog in winter
Wandering in nothingness
Until eyes become welcoming doors
Or death buries it.

It’s like rising from beneath the sand
Feeling what death is like
But seeing the horizon and Sun
Being thankful that you can.
