Feeling Mortal


I have admired Kris Kristofferson's songwriting as long as I can remember. Kris is one of those bigger than life people who always strike me as living life pretty near the edge, and frankly, I never expected him to be around as long as he has. But as a fan, I am ever so thankful that the man has lived a long, productive life. 

This song, "Feeling Mortal," from about seven years ago is one of my favorite Kris Kristofferson songs ever. If Kris was feeling mortal in 2012, I can only imagine how he must be feeling right now (Kris is now 83 years old). 

And tonight, for obvious reasons, the song seems to fit perfectly the mood a lot of us are in.

  1. It is a fitting song for what's going on around us right now. Hope you and your family are doing okay!

    1. It really is, Lark. So far so good for us; I hope that's the same for you?

      I do have one good friend who was displaying all the symptoms and was tested. She's feeling a lot better now, but the test results are not yet in.

  2. *Gasp* is he really 83? I honestly had no idea. My brother and I loved his songs when we were teens.

    1. Hard to believe, isn't it? But then, we've been fans "forever", haven't we? :-)
