You may not know the importance of the outfit I am wearing today…I didn’t connect the dots until moments after I heard the news.
Turns out…my ultimate band, Pearl Jam, announced additional dates to their fall tour. Um, guess who’s city is on the list???
Um, yeah, obviously…this girl’s.
My town, my backyard, my turf, my people…my favorite songs played in my favorite city…for me (and only me)!
Surely I know someone who knows someone who can get me backstage?? Surely I can bribe someone’s brother’s cousin to let me into the sanctuary that is the backstage?? Or sound check?? I would be ok sitting on the sidelines for sound check.
Or….secretly cheersing some bottles of beer together at one of the city’s best dive bars. With the whole band and crew and even all the wives and shit too. Yeah, I would be ok with that.
The outfit. Strangely enough, I am wearing the same outfit that I wore to my very first Pearl Jam show in Chicago at Wrigley last summer. And there I was scrolling through my Facebook news feed…which I mostly despise…and there it was. Music for me!!
When you choose clothes, the universe knows…and it makes things happen that mean something…and if you pay attention, you find these strange connections all over the place.
I am hoping there is some connection that leads my hand to shake Eddie’s….eh, who am I kidding, I need a hug. I deserve a hug!!!!
