JD

you guys know John Denver... Yeah yeah, country roads and all that patriotic humbug. The first time I heard that song was in school in Saudi Arabia. And I would try to imagine what West Virginia looks like because here was a man obviously awestruck by his state [which was located so far away it could as well be on a different planet] This was weird because from my experience, my state be it either Karnataka or AP was quite pale in comparison. We had no awesomely named mountains or rivers with catchy names.

Speaking of rivers; If you go further down the lyrics, you get to a point where he speaks about the 'Shenandoah River' remember???

Well... I swam in it yesterday.

life is strange isn't it?

...i never thought of that as patriotic. more a love of home. i feel/felt the same way about madras.

Yeah, you are right. I still think that the guy was a bit melodramatic, even if West Virginia is so very beautiful.

What are you doing these days?

JerryKantrell said...

yeah it is, these people respect nature here, at least in a few places. The places I saw were in pristine condition.

never been to west virginia , always heard it was good. they made it sound like a racist state during presidential elections on TV.

It might be man, I never went to any of the cities there, just harper's Ferry which is basically a town that has been turned into a theme museum of sorts.
