Well, there are an extra 80,000+ people in the town where I live. That's over triple the population for the entire county. Why would that many people travel from all over to visit a small middle Tennessee town? For the 5th year of a Woodstock like concert that lasts for several days called Bonnaroo. I've never been although I love some of the bands that are there. In the past, some of my 80's favorites like Joan Jett & the Blackhearts and Rick Springfield have been there. Lots & lots of other big name bands old & new. This year, the name that caught my eye that I'd like to see was Nickel Creek. I saw them play at an Amy Grant Christmas concert and their pure love of what they were doing hooked me. When I hear a song by them, I remember the joy and enthusiasm with which they played. It was magic just to watch them. Someday when they're playing at a smaller event I'm going to go watch them again. I hope they never lose that special high just from doing what they love because it's amazing just to watch them. My hubby & I both were impressed by the way they put themselves into the music they played. If you ever get a chance to go see them, definitely do.
I often think about watching them play when I hit a particular high with my writing. Not that I dance around and sing (well, okay, sometimes I do, but we should so not talk about that!), but that I literally feel like I'm floating when I get a scene just right or when I've finished a book that I love. Every person should have something in their life that brings them such pleasure. :)
Speaking of pleasure, I've started a new book. :)
Off to watch my daughter's softball game. :) Go A Winning Attitude. Isn't that just the coolest name for a team?
