I`m late to this very well crafted song @Charlie  and agree with the positive comments of other listeners. Attracted to the title and lulled by the upbeat first verse the second verse  really got my attention and I began to get the and light/dark inner life you sing of.
And sing very well too- with a kind of Ian Tyson clear warmth we rarely hear now.
Excellent songwriting and a good simple production ::thumb:: ::thumb::

@robertkc Thank you so much, Robert! I am not that well-versed in the Scriptures but the title is inspired by Matthew 7:16: Do men gather grapes from thorn bushes; or figs from thistles?
If you dig it, do it. If you dig it a lot, do it twice (Jim Croce).
