The life and times of Grizzly Adams

This story came on TV at a pivotal time in my life, just before I learned to drive.  Before I became involved with computers.  Before my life went down the track that took me to where I am today.  My life would have been so much different if I had went totally the way of the outdoorsman.  Watching the episodes again after almost thirty years, I am openly weeping at the end theme of the show.  Denice thought "Our Song" was "Psycho Killers" by the Talking Heads.  I was gobsmacked when she could sing the Grizzly Adams theme.  That really was "Our Song".  I am having the loss, almost three years ago, come crashing in on me again.  The one woman who really got me, understood me, torn from us so cruelly.

I just want to go into the wilderness.  Hopefully forget the grief, and remember the joy.
