I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people!

  2. I used to thrill to Johnny Cash’s singing, but I do think his voice shows his age.
    Now I am going to look at your response to my question on the NF post.
    Thanks Denise. It’s good to hear from you again. I missed your post the last few days

  3. Ah yes… the man in black… one of my favorite Bible scholars who once said: “You know the Bible can sure shed a lot of light onto all those commentaries”
    Truer words have never been spoken even by many seminary trained Theologians, in my opinion.

    I agree with you “Ring of Fire” was definitely
    one of the best songs for his voice…Funny, his wife, June Carter wrote that
    one…

    and sort of a twist of fate, ( and a bit of useless information I seem to
    recall) When his daughter Rosanne Cash came onto the scene, she was searching for songs for, I think her second album, and ran across Tennessee Flattop Box, and had recorded it before she found out
    her father was the one who wrote it.
    Bless You

    • Thanks Paul – I didn’t know the story about TFB – you’re right, what a coincidence! Lovely, gravelly voice! Bless you, Paul, you’re getting me out of my shell this lovely morning…

  4. Thanks Denise… the man in black lives. And that strong, vibrant voice that was, still resonates a message of hope and life for us all.

  5. I would guess this was not a rendition from his younger years as the voice sounds strained and aged. Weathered if you will. That’s what makes it special as it is sung with the tired confidence of an old man.
    The rendition is not in the same category as the versions of
    the operatic greats. I will sleep well tonight. Thanks for the post.

  7. I fell in love with this song and its sentiment when we sang it in highschool choir. We never do walk alone, I know that now – and still there are times when thoughts have me believing otherwise…

    • Yes, through all the ups and downs of life it is easy sometimes to feel abandoned and alone, Ruth. But when the chips are down and there is no one else around, we can feel His presence and His love.
