We all struggle to live fully present in the moment. Many people are trapped with their memories and with the pain assoccertiated with them. Today I explore the impact of the past with a metaphor that Meat Loaf / Jim Steinman made famous and how we can overcome the things that haunt us or preoccupy us.
Enjoy folks !

PS. I havent heard the song in ages and after reading the lyrics tonight, I realised I misunderstood what a small part of the song was about. But the metaphor is still relevant and a powerful one at that. This is one of Meat Loaf's / Jim Steinman's most powerful songs from what may have been his best album (on par with Bat Out of Hell).
