"Your eyes go blind and your blood runs cold. Sometimes I feel so weak I just wanna' explode."
Not one of Bruce's most optimistic of lines, but I think of it now and again when I get a little fatigued.
I have a job that calls for action...
...lots of phone calls and plenty of places to visit. I joke with co-workers saying that when the phone rings, and you're a safety guy it's usually not someone saying:
"We're doing great over here!"
Nah, it's usually an emergency, and the fact that there are so many different things to look at and think about, makes it eternally interesting.
I couldn't imagine sitting in a cubicle.
But I also know when I need a mental health day.
A round of golf?
It hasn't happened yet.
Back-to-back days of nothing?
Well, there's good news!
A holiday weekend coming up.
Our wedding anniversary too.
So, I always wonder about the guy that Bruce was singing about in that song.
The next line is:
"Explode and tear this whole town apart, take a knife and cut this pain from my heart."
But there's good news...
...it's from The Promised Land...
A song of eternal hope!
Just a couple of more work days.
We'll all get there!
