    @Chris Guest Certified Prof.Accountant (SA) Thank you for a thought provoking post Chris. All the better for setting it against the song of Seger which is a favorite of mine. Can we eliminate the negative and use only that which propels us positively forward? My two cents would be that yes, but not at a point in time. It is a continual effort and re-setting of the internal compass to destinies yearned for. It is a shaping of the voyage rather than a change in course and an ongoing lightening of the boat to sail more surely in the swells and stills of the sea of life.

    Thanks for the tag @Chris Guest Certified Prof.Accountant (SA) I echo the comment of Deb Lange. Sometimes we need a person or a thing in your case music to filter through those obstacles and help us breaks those walls we have built up only if only wish we realise that's invisible. A figmant of imagination built by those negative experiences. Let the music bring the goodness in you. Keep buzzing 🤗🤗

    Dear @ Chris Guest - great post and good on you for wanting to explore your creativity through music and analogy and story. To answer your question re filters requires a longer post. But quickly, thete is gold to be found within what may have occurred that we call negative. Of course we need to discern how to move away from abuse, but events in life with people that may surface conflict are often a pond to swim in for awhile, to clean away the murky waters, find the gold and sense the transformation from within and without. Great topic for another post.

    Ah, the loss of innocence and suppression of memories! The latter being attempted many many times by myself and I find the subconscious is a powerful adversary!
    As for Mr Seger...I was introduced to his music by my Ex and Seger along with many good memories and fun times make the marriage not a personal regret. 😊

    "Against the Wind" awesome song. I believe the song certainly speaks to life's push. But I think the real element is desire. A heart that desires is a motivated heart.

    The reward is less climactic than the desire

    Desire ignores negatives and pursues the goal

    Great song, great view and post, thanks @Ali Anani for the tag

    Glad @Ali Anani brought your post to my attention @Chris Guest. I echo the comments from your readers, especially @David Navarro López and @Susan Rooks. From my perspective, filtering, as in protection against something "toxic" is important, but "negative" doesn't necessarily mean harmful. As difficult as it may be to have the negative experience, used wisely, it sure can make us learn about how to enable future positives.

    For me, the most interesting part was at the end, with your brief mention of filters, @Chris Guest. These words " . . . is possible to condition the mind to retain only the positive in life and leave the rest behind?" got me thinking about only remembering the positives, and I realized I don't want to totally forget the negatives. I don't want to focus on them, but I think I have learned more from them than from the positives, given the pain that negatives can cause. Who wants to repeat pain?

    A really good post, and I'm glad I found it, even though I don't know how. Maybe I saw @Ali Anani's share? If so, thanks, @Ali Anani!

    @Rod - agree totally! Together with Fleetwood Mac my favorite band of all time and MK is the top guitarist ever...unique signature style that is unmatched! A Golden sequence of 5 albums from the debut through to Brothers in Arms '85 and, in my opinion, Making Movies is the best by far with the epic Tunnel of Love and Romeo & Juliet as the center pieces...was not lucky enough to see DS but have seen MK solo concert where he did all the DS material including a 17 minute version of Telegraph Road- epic!

    As a Dire Straits fan who often plays every one of their studio albums one after the other, I loved it. I got to experience the magic first hand in the mid 80's when they came to Australia for the Bother's In Arms tour and, at barely 20 feet from the stage, was close enough to the stage to see him play. It's also interesting to note the base standard for a good lead guitarist is the ability to play Sultans of Swing.

    Tom Waits really is one of a kind. He has a very 'beat" streak about him. I once walked six blocks with him in Toronto. He's smart and weird and really gets what the world is about. This is a great song. I'm amazed that he didn;t wear out his voice years ago.

    Even the referees and judges so loved the man that they may have awarded him a few wins over more deserving opponents! But no denying he is the Greatest. The most genial, tongue-in-cheek and lovable pugilist ever. He had such a fantastic sense of humour and was really so affectionate. Even of his opponents. All the taunting and teasing was mostly good natured poking and even those he fought could see he was just playing them along. I still recall the way he grabbed the trophy and took it into his corner the moment he entered the ring...so childlike and naughty...i think that was the Thrilla in Manila or was it the Rumble in the Jungle...? He took the best punches, gave his rivals every chance to use all their skill and stamina...until he rallied around on sheer will and grit and scored his winning hit. He was superhuman without a doubt. Consistently so. Boxing had Ali and martial arts had Bruce Lee. The finest and forever the greatest. My daughter recently did a painting of Ali. Will buzzpost it for you Chris. ;)

    #3 Hi Henri.So Tom started out as a conventional singer/ songwriter in early 70s.After '83 he definitely became more alternative/out there in style. Recommend his 73 debut "Closing Time" and then 85's "Rain Dogs" from the wierder phase.Enjoy...a tremendous artist who has remained true to himself.
