There are many ways of breaking a heart. Stories were full of hearts broken by love,
but what really broke a heart was taking away its dream - whatever that dream might be.

Patty Griffin is coming!

Now you who read my blog, (and thank you for that BTW) know how much I love this woman. She has a new CD releasing on Feb 6th. (Already pre-ordered at my local Borders.) So consequently, will be going on tour. And on March 13th, which is my birthday, she will be preforming Los Angeles. When I heard this about her new CD and looked up tour dates, I almost passed out! Someone I have always wanted to see, and just never was in the right place at the right time, how serendipidous! Can I get an AMEN from the bobble-heads?

Now, granted, its a Tuesday, anyone who wants to stalk me or just be in the general vicinity of me should go to the Wiltern Theater and look for my toes... giggles. There is only one other person who I am dying to see this concert with, but I doubt that will happen. Different states, too far to travel, and impending circumstances. Sighs. You know how much fun it is to see a concert with someone that loves the same artist as much as you do? I know you do. Its almost concert orgasm! Sharing your appreciation of an artist in concert with someone at a similar level is such a BONUS!

Who lives in So Cal and loves Patty G? Looking for a group to attend and help me get over the hump of the body aging one more year. Anyone? Anyone? Well, think about it. If not, I will have to take my three year old. YIkES!

Oh and just so you can have a sampling of the Patty wisdom, another round of lyrics.

We are swimming with the snakes at the bottom of the well
So silent and peaceful in the darkness where we fell
But we are not snakes and what’s more whenever will be
And if we stay swimming here forever we will never be free

I heard ‘em ringin’ the bells in heaven and hell
They got a secret they’re gettin ready to tell
Its fallin’ from the skies, callin’ from the graves
Open your eyes boy I think we are saved
Open your eyes boy I think we are saved

Let’s take a walk on the bridge right over this mess
Don’t need to tell me a thing baby, we’ve already confessed
And I raise my voice to the air and we were blessed
Its hard to give
Its hard to get
But everybody needs a little forgiveness

We are calling for help tonight on a thin phone line.
As ususal we’re havin’ ourselves one helluva time.
And the planes keep flyin’ over our heads no matter how loud we
Shout Hey Hey Heyyy
And we keep wavin’ and wavin’ our arms in the air but we’re all tired out

I heard somebody say today’s the day
A big old hurricane she’s blowin’ our way,
Knockin’ over the buildings,
Killin’ all the lights.
Open your eyes boy, we made it through the night.
Open your eyes boy, we made it through the night.

Its hard to give.
Its hard to get.
Its hard to live baby, still I think its the best bet.
Hey now hard to give and I’m never gonna forget.
But everybody needs a little forgiveness.
Everybody needs a little forgiveness

Patty Griffin ~ Forgiveness

Now does that just make things a little more clear or what? Sighs. I hope that I find someone to attend this show with me. If not, she is playing in San Francisco the following Friday. And my sis lives up in Napa... :cheesygrin: maybe two shows in one week? Be still my heart. Live music, and Patty G.

They are going to have to scrap me off the ceiling ~ Hey Mist1, what exactly do you wear for that? giggles.
