My daughter, Mary, and I are Rush fans… We like the progressive rock band Rush.

Cindy knows that when I lift my arms and do a pinching motion with my fingers I’m listening to the song, “Spirit of Radio” on headphones.

Invisible airwaves
Crackle with life
Bright antennae bristle
With the energy

Emotional feedback
On a timeless wavelength
Bearing a gift beyond price
Almost free

“A Show of Hands” is the title of both a live album and concert video released by Rush in 1989. I have both. They are a part of the soundtrack of my life.
