Welcome to my regular Friday song/tune day and general ramble, ladies and gentlemen, where I pick a piece of music that reflects my mood or the times, to share with you.
I don’t really feel like Friday song day today. My well of songs is drying up. I realise that is a cop out because it is not all about me. Every now and then we all feel obligated to put on our happy face. Many people struggle with their mental health and for them, Christmas and other national festive occasions, can be particularly challenging. If you can see that your loved one is struggling, ask them what they need. It may not be the stress of a big family get-together. Sometimes a chat or a warm/cool beverage and a familiar face may be more than enough.
When that is not enough, help is available. Lifeline Australia provides 24/7 crisis support on 13 11 14. Similar services are also available in other countries.
Now for the song, It Don’t Come Easy, written and sung by Ringo Starr.
Hang in there, everyone.
