I wasn't nearly young enough nor drunk enough to press up close to the stage with the crowd, but after we found a place to hang back where there was a bit of breathing room, we really had a good time. What I love about Dave is that the emotion in his music is real, and resonates with me. A lot of his older music is about falling in love, the rush of emotions and impossible dreams you have in those younger years. Now, his love songs mirror where my life and my relationship is, after several years of marriage and kids. Or maybe that's just what I hear.
It seems that every year I have a moment. Last night's was during "Two Step", an oldie but goody. I'm not sure I've ever heard it live before.
Celebrate we will
Because life is short but
Sweet for certain
We're climbing two by two
To be sure these days continue
The things we cannot change
Two days ago was Henry's 6th birthday. Yesterday I posted my father's obituary to my facebook page. But last night it was ok to celebrate, it was ok to feel good, feel happy, enjoy my family, laugh, dance, scream...
Some days I can't do it, but last night I could. So I did.
Things we cannot change....
