NO CONDITION IS PERMANENT [Episode #235 ~ 07-18-20]

Gram-Parsons

Pictured: Gram Parsons.

The service was impersonal and cold; it seemed the priest knew nothing about Clarence. His friends questioned whether Clarence would have even wanted a religious burial. The mood at the graveside was somber and confused. The musicians stood by the grave, packed shoulder to shoulder, looking at one another. No one thought Clarence was being given a proper send-off, but no one knew how to respond.

Suddenly, Gram opened his mouth and began to sing “Farther Along”…

The moment crystallized why Gram Parsons is a legendary figure and should be. Grief-stricken, irritated by the priest, heartbroken over Clarence White’s death, and loaded on pills, liquor, and likely heroin, Gram remained the one person at the grave who knew how to illuminate that precious moment. When all around him were paralyzed—and when all were likely far more competent in day-to-day problem-solving than Gram—Gram alone understood what the soul of the moment required. He understood the poetry necessary to deal with the pain. With his own profound connection to grief and loss, Gram understood how to grant the assembled throng catharsis, and Clarence White release.
