I Don’t Want to Go to Rehab, I say No, No, No

I’m thinking about our young musical talent recently lost, Amy Winehouse, her tragic end mysteriously at the same age as greats such as Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain and others. The words of her song keep going through my head. Is there a prescience to them?

Are we in denial that everybody needs to go to rehab? It seems like most of the world is addicted to consumerism, waste, medication, war, self-destructive habits and ways of thinking. But none of us want to go to rehab. We say no, no, no.

Where is, what is the massive rehab for us going to be? We’re killing ourselves collectively. Toxic air, toxic water, toxic food, toxic soil. Medicating ourselves with stuff and distraction.

The tragedy of Amy Winehouse may be a mirror for all of us.
