    "Life can be as complicated as you want it to be or as simple. Clarity is in the simple version." Unfortunately, I think most people opt for the complicated part. I know I do far too often. Must try to stop and smell the roses more often...
    Thanks again for your wisdom, Ted.

    Different songs put me in certain places from my past. Taste does the same thing. The flavor of a certain berry off a bunch of grapes sometimes puts me standing in the middle of a certain vineyard . With my eyes closed Carignane and Zinfandel do that . It's how I relate the names with the flavor.

    Life can be as complicated as you want it to be or as simple. Clarity is in the simple version. Why people jog I suppose - breath of fresh air forced into the brain.

    - Agreed - Good one Mr. Hansen.

    Ann penned the words to Dog and Butterfly after she watched from her bedroom window as her sheepdog chased a butterfly around the yard.As Ann watched her dog, "it struck her as symbolic as to how life can be", explains Nancy."When you're an earthbound creature,we're always jumping and reaching for things we can never really catch, but you try anyway.And that's the point of the song.We're always trying to grab at something higher."
    Personally, I've never really been much of a Heart fan, but they did one song that was written by Bill Steinberg, offered to the Bangles,(who refused) titled "What About Love", which has a similar effect on me that Dog and Butterfly had on Mr.Hansen. Good article Steve.
