Another reason why…
In regards to an injury that may prevent the lead-singer of a rock band from ever playing guitar again, that singer relays what his friends (band mates) said:
As I write this, it is not clear that I will ever play guitar again. The band have reminded me that neither they nor western civilization are depending on this.
There are so many things woven into that. Painful and pleasant things especially. The love and kindness is quite apparent and sweet, and subtle, too.
