Sure, it looks like I fell getting out of the blocks...

but in fact, I have just done my ten minutes a day in word, saved on hard drive. Maybe I'll upload, maybe I won't. The point of the blog is to get me writing ten minutes a day, not necessarily to blog ten minutes a day, but the blog is a nice public, visible, memorable reminder. Friday I couldn't access blogger, yesterday I couldn't grab my neighbor's wireless signal. tonight I am free loading.

i wrote about the lyle lovett concert yesterday in the post I didn't post, and I started listing other great concerts I have attended. This morning, concerts from 15+ years ago started coming back to me--Deja Voodoo at the U of M when I was still in high school ( a great trip into winnipeg and i danced my face off), Deja Voodoo a couple of other times, but never as much fun, Cowboy Junkies in the U of W coffee shop 4th floor--or whatever we called that thing. Oooh, now I am starting to think of a lot of great shows (and a good number of mediocre shows) I checked out when I was in college--that was a pretty big and important part of my life when I was 16-22. I remember saying to people afterwards, after I started graduate school, that I no longer had money for music and books, and books won out. That might have been a huge mistake!

I just remembered a concert that I went to at the U of Calgary though--at a time when I was starting to pull back from the music scene. The Boot Hill Foot Tappers opened, I remember that, and then it was another roots rock Canadian alternative band, but I am forgetting which one! I don't think it was Blue Rodeo, but maybe. Seems to me that it was somebody I had seen in Winnipeg at least once. Like all my favorite concerts then, it was standing room only because there were not chairs and tables--we couldn't help but dance. I do remember being inappropriately attracted to a friend of my wife at the time, which you might think is the reason why she is no longer my wife, but that is not the reason. And who are you, who I am imagining reading this?

Memorializing the everyday--I should have done more of it! I can also see the value in recoveing those moments of passion, excitement, extro-version on my part. I need more of those, I need to let go more often, and music seems to have been a bit part of those moments.
