Can we hold on through what lies ahead?

At times it appears that our happiness hangs by a thread...
Can we hold on through what lies ahead?

Charles Dickens starts his book Hard Times--it was the best of times, it was the worst of times. The characters in Harmony were experiencing those times when they sang the words to this song. Looking ahead facing separation and death all they had to hold on to was each other.

Life really is like that. At times it seems that our happiness hangs by a thread and that we can't find our way. We feel lost and alone and we reach out to the constants in our lives: God, our family, our friends, and the one constant that always seems to be there for me: music.

I don't know if Barry reads this blog. But if some day you're surfing the net and come across this, I would just like to say "thanks man". Thanks for giving us a lifetime of music that is connected to our memories, our struggles, our hopes and our dreams. Thanks for inspiring us to "pay it forward" and to give back. And thanks, for being you.

Holding on,
Texas Fanilow
