Language of the heart that I need to hear today


The following is from the YouTube channel where I found the above video:

Written by John as an expression of his love for Yoko Ono, the song is heartfelt and passionate. As John told Rolling Stone magazine in 1970, “When it gets down to it, when you’re drowning, you don’t say, ‘I would be incredibly pleased if someone would have the foresight to notice me drowning and come and help me,’ you just scream.”


Yesterday while driving up the steep hill that leads to my home, I saw a dead deer lying on the sidewalk and found myself screaming in anger and grief through my KN95 mask.  When I got home a few minutes later, I called 911 who then contacted those who could remove the deer's body from the side of the road.  I am fortunate to have the help I need today and always.  The Beatles are part of that.

Thank you for calling and finding a way to get the poor deer off the road. It's always so sad when animals meet that fate out there.
It's good to hear the language of the heart. Yes.

That last song, Help, spoke to me today. We all need each other to lean on.

Nice selection of songs here.

Where I grew up, accidents with deer running into the headlights of oncoming cars on forest roads were common and still are. All car insurances cover the damage and have a hotline when it happens because you must stay with the animal until the local forester has been notified. I used to be terrified of it happening to me, never did but one night out with my father's car, I ran over a squirrel which was equally horrific.

A deer was hit and killed on the road near my daughter's driveway. She said it only took an hour for the vultures to strip it down to bones and several hours later, even the bones were gone. Nature took care of the removal and provided nourishment in the process.
