He changed the way we saw the environment. He changed the way I saw myself.
HE WAS FLYING FOR ME...
He was flying for everyone/He was trying to see a brighter day for each and everyone/He gave us his light-He gave us his spirit-And all he could be...
HE WAS FLYING FOR ME...John Denver. Troubador. Activist. Human Being. God I wanted to be like him. In the midst of my teenage angst he made wire-rimmed glasses and a high voice
socially acceptable. He also helped raise the awareness of things not-so acceptable in a society. "War is not healthy for children and other living things...", "The Box", "One World".
I'm trying to explain to my children how a man's life and message should make the world a better place. It struck me only today as I dug out my old tapes, that the image I thought I drew
from the mirror must subconciously be the mirror he held up to my life. God I hope it's not too late.
