In a future existence ,
WE shall look upon what we think our present existence ,

AS a DREAM .....

Edgar Allan Poe
I may NOT always love YOU

But long as there ARE stars ABOVE you

YOU never need to DOUBT it

I'LL make you so SURE about IT


GOD only knows what I'd be without you
IF you should EVER leave me

though LIFE would still GO ON believe me

The world could show NOTHING to me

So what good would living DO ME .....


GOD only knows what I'd be without you
and so BRIAN WILSON so aptly sums up in HIS exposition

GOD only knows what I'd be without you

the BEACH BOYS classic

found on PET SOUNDS circa 1966 ...

Later , PAUL MCCARTNEY of THE BEATLES would agree ...

Paul would say ; perhaps the greatest BEACH BOYS song ever ...

THE BEATLES answer to PET SOUNDS ...

I think WE ALL know the answer is ...

SGT . PEPPER lonely hearts club band
OFTEN times OUR personal mythologies / histories

ARE constructed in parallel to broader collective / cultural histories ...

BRIAN WILSON did so for PAUL MCCARTNEY ...

and his bandmates , THE BEATLES

HOW peculiar is HISTORY ?

A turn here , and a BIG change THERE ...

BRIAN WILSON had his battles TO CONTEND with ...

and so WHAT might have been , NEVER quite sure ends UP ... there
once upon a TIME ...

A dear friend confided in ME , this :

WE all have OUR personal crosses ... TO BEAR ...

we ALL have OUR own BATTLES to contend WITH ...

and so ... LIFE happens while WE are busy making OTHER plans ...

BRIAN WILSON , might have changed cultural history for ALL of US ...

HIS personal battles are certainly tangled with OUR collective ones ...
so TOO , are MINE ...

YES ...

I do not believe that OUR paths are straight lines ...

mine certainly WAS NOT .

IS that peculiar ?

OR is IT the normal , yet mysterious way for ALL of US ?

I wish I knew ...
THIS too IS not an easy BALLAD to contend with ...

HELTER SKELTER is a slang BRITISH expression for :

a disorderly , post haste - chaotic , fashion ...
EVERYBODY ...

JOIN in the fun
