Art as My Vehicle #2
Dressed in Black
71 Days of Johnny Cash
2003

My husband and I were deeply saddened when we heard on public radio about the death of the legend Johnny Cash at age seventy-one. Having found comfort and understanding in the songs he sang about life's journey, we sought to get to know Johnny Cash even better. For the next seventy-one days, my husband and I restricted ourselves to listening only to Johnny Cash and Johnny Cash-related music, which included the music of his wife, June Carter Cash. We found that the music encouraged us to slow down our pace of life. On the seventy-second day, we dressed in all black to commemorate the life and music of Johnny Cash, "The Man in Black."
