Living the WELL Life

Heavy Weather - by Steve Rockstein

Oh, where have you been, my blue-eyed son ?
And where have you been my darling young one ?

I've walked and I've crawled on six crooked highways
I've stepped in the middle of seven sad forests
I've been out in front of a dozen dead oceans

And it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard, and it's a hard
It's a hard rain's a-gonna fall.  -Bob Dylan, 1962  Read more
