reluctant layers

10-30-12 1 10-30-12 2

When I initially drafted this post, I had every intention of whining about how it's cold, and some sort of outerwear is becoming a necessity.  Of course, said outerwear does not have to have sleeves ... especially if you are stubborn.

But then, much bigger things happened, and so I will instead talk about that ...

Last night, John and I went to see Bruce Springsteen and the East Street Band.  Holy mind-blowing.  That dude is 62 years old?!  Never have I seen a performer have such amazing rapport with fans.  And never have I seen concert-goers have such an incredible experience.  With 16 musicians backing Bruce, the sound was more than I could have ever hoped for.  We ended up with a great place to stand (general admission, FTW!) and even had a little surprise when the crowd divider merely 12" in front of us turned out to be a walkway for The Boss.  Yeah, that was close.  I'm so glad that we ponied up for the tickets, because I can't imagine an opportunity like that will come along again.  Although, I'd pay every bit if it did.

All that excitement did come with a little sadness.  I mean, we're talking about the band that is New Jersey.  They played a great dedication to the Jersey shore and continued the Jersey theme throughout the show.  My heart goes out to everyone who is still picking up the pieces.  We were actually scheduled to play a derby bout in Jersey this weekend, but had to postpone it.  Not only are many of the skaters still without power, but there is very little gas available to get anywhere.  A little over a year ago, my hometown was ravaged by heavy rains and a rising river.  I have yet to see anything more devastating than water's fury, and I hope I never do.  NYC and Jersey, you're in my heart.
