This week on It’s OK that You’re Not OK:
Such Ferocious Beauty:
with Margo Timmins of the Cowboy Junkies
Dementia means losing your person over and over again.
Margo Timmins and her siblings watched their father lose pieces of himself for years. They processed all that loss the way they always have: through music. The Cowboy Junkies vocalist joins us this week to talk about .
*not sure who the Cowboy Junkies are? Google “cowboy junkies sweet jane” – I bet you’ll instantly recognize her voice.
In this episode we cover:
- The endless “interpretation” of music – each song means something completely different to the writer and the vocalist and the audience
- Why helping someone not be scared of dying isn’t the goal
- Everybody’s hell is the correct hell for them, and everyone’s hell is valid. (huh?)
- How a neutral, logical approach to emotions helps you navigate truly impossible things (sometimes)
