...I have no wish to give up, in fact I would like to but I don't
know how. If someone can hand me a pill (crushed because I can't
swallow it whole) at the right moment I will gladly take it and
save myself further pain and distress, as well as other people.
In the meantime I did two tunes yesterday, a country song for
Rick over in Tenneessee and a setting, attached of the "Kyrie
Elison". Please don't think I've gone religious in my disease,
you probably know that I've always loved Bach's St Matthew Passion
and other religious works without being at all interested in a
closer walk with God. Anyway, this item started life as a romantic
ballad called "F*** U, N*****".
