I purposed myself to start living this year. To stop saying all the stuff I want to do, and just do it. My son and I love music. We almost always have music on in the house. My husband also loves music, but is always busy being busy doing busy stuff. Anyhow, he likes Third Eye Blind. My husband and I saw them in concert 13 years ago in North Carolina. It was an awesome time and gave my mind a break from a miscarriage I had weeks before.
I saw that they were playing locally at the Temecula Valley Balloon and Wine Festival. My mind raced back to 1998 and being 21. Memories of that night are vivid. I went to an autograph signing at Planet Rock and then off to the concert. Jimmy met me there as did some of the high school kids who thought we were cool. The music was awesome and the crowd of drunk Marines and Sailors was really great to be in.
Well, we went yesterday to see them and Candlebox. My son was kind of whiney and we reassured him once the concert began he would enjoy himself. He was upset tall people were in front of him and he could not see. We told him this is often how these things are and just enjoy the music. At onc epoint I had him sit in some abandoned lawn chair. Told him to listen to the music and look up at the starry sky. He did, and even though him and his dad were cold (hard headed) he did enjoy himself. We left slightly befoire it was over to avoid traffic but, could hear them rock their last song.
All in all it was a good time. It was not planned way ahead and even with little money brought for extras we enjoyed it. He enjoyed it and maybe next time he will remember a hoodie.
We live, we learn and we love.
Love and Living
