John was an activist for the environment, a conservationist for the mountains he so loved, and a humanitarian for the many causes he supported. He had an interest in finding solutions to solving world hunger and developing sustainability projects. One can only wonder, if he’d lived, how he might have made an even more important difference in the world today. Sadly, it was his very drive to always try something new that led to his untimely death.
I still have my many John Denver albums and looking back at the songs I listened to by the hour back then, some of my favorites were these:
If I needed uplifting, Welcome to My Morning, Calypso, and Take Me to Tomorrow.
If I was feeling bittersweet: Poems, Prayers, and Promises and Leaving on a Jet Plane.
Flat out sad: Darcy Farrow and I’m Sorry.
Thinking about home and family: Take Me Home, Country Roads and Back Home Again.
