cultural value
August 6, 2018

Currently in Charlotte, NC. We decided to see a couple of concerts 1)to celebrate Brian's birthday and 2)have a last hurrah before school starts back up. It's a mini vacay!!

Last night we went to see Live and the Counting Crows. Apparently, they tour together quite a bit insomuch as Brian saw them together 20 years ago. I love both bands for a variety of reasons but mostly because the songs belong on my soundtrack.

Tonight we'll hit up The Evening Muse. It's a popular open mic here in Charlotte. Several big-name performers have started and/or performed there. Brian put himself on the list. It's a great place to network and the people watching is good too. Last time we went to the Muse, we ate a place called Cabo Fish Taco; I had some amazing mahi, mango, avocado tacos. They were amazing! I think this time I'll try something new because, of course, we're going again.

Tuesday, we'll be up the road a piece in Carrboro to Cat's Cradle to see Amanda Shires who happens to be an awesome violin player in her own right but also plays with husband, Jason Isbell.

I have to say since meeting Brian I have experienced a whole world of art, culture, and music like never before in my life all the way from rinky-dink open mics at the diviest of bars to musicals like Le Miserables *We even tried to score Hamilton tickets recently; what a FUBAR situation that was* at Charleston's Center for Performing Arts and the likes of Pittsburgh's Benedum Center, the Warhol Museum, and eaten corn dogs from a food truck.

Cocktail dress or cut-offs, I'm down for a good time and seeing live music and having some good chow.

Funny though, I was scrolling on FB and saw a post from a friend whose girls attend a rather large but community supported suburban high school. In seeing her post I was thinking about the summer between 8th and 9th grade. (Cheap Trick ruled!) I had moved from the backwater of West Texas to City of Industry, CA. I spent the summer babysitting and having out with my dad's bosses kids. Had we stayed there, I would have attended a huge high school in West Covina much like the high school where my friend's girls go, and, I wonder how my life would have been so completely different, how I wanted to be a Naval underwater welder, growing up in California instead of dirt-town Arizona.

I originally came here to write about yearning for a past I never had, opportunities missed, and life as I perceived it on the other side. But then as I was writing about the experiences I've had in the last twelve years and I realize my life may be richer because of and not in spite of a less than optimum socio-eco, geographical status.

Life is wherever you find the beauty and the music.

Blessed be~
