The Reach

Music: The Reach, Dan Fogelberg

In Memory of Dan Fogelberg

as today would've been his 57th birthday

and he was taken far too young.

Thankfully, his music lives on.

The following quote is taken from his website.

Every human being on this earth is born with a tragedy, and it isn't original sin. He's born with the tragedy that he has to grow up. That he has to leave the nest, the security, and go out to do battle. He has to lose everything that is lovely and fight for a new loveliness of his own making, and it's a tragedy. A lot of people don't have the courage to do it.

Helen Hayes (1900 - 1993)
