“Memories remind us that every moment of our lives, even the most tragic, have contributed to your strength. We’ve gotten through. We’re still here.

I’m thankful that I’m still here.  By the time you read this, I’ll be eighty-two, and I’m pleased to tell you that since turning eighty, I’ve written a couple of dozen new songs, recorded five new albums, and performed over three hundred live concerts.  I don’t say that to boast but only to reassert by belief that the essence of my work as a songwriter, singer, and performer is based on the simple task of telling stories.  Telling those stories has kept me alive.”

— Willie Nelson
“It’s a Long Story:  My Life”
