Since June I’ve been trying something called Summer Blogging hours, where I try to share something meaningful with you in 100 words or less. I’ve had a great time writing them but since it is September the entry below will be the last Summer Blog Post for 2009.
In the moments before the music started I though of the last time I had been at a Sunday afternoon rock show and every possible reason I should watch from the back. In a few hours I’ll be in a jacket and tie but for the moment Ted Leo is ready to play four feet from me. When he begins I know I’m in the right place. Every time my feet leave the ground it’s clear I’m not there to be reminded of something I used to be, I’m there because of who I am.
