Dreaming through the long winters
I just recently had a garage sale... and I unearthed boxes and boxes of Cd's while looking for stuff to sell. I came across this one, and I can't believe I didn't just carry it with my wherever I went. Because I love it that much.
I remember where I was when I first heard it. I was in Barnes & Noble. They were playing it throughout the store. I went up to the register and said, "I have to have this cd, who is it????"And so I bought it and it makes me feel like I just drank a bottle of wine.
The last song, Recessional, might be my favorite song ever.
The whole cd is beautiful... you just can't go near it. So a Miller High Life toast to Vienna Teng this evening. THANK YOU! I love you!
On a side note, I had a dream the other night that I went to a Long Winter's concert. And certain people had special passes to not only meet John Roderick, but to lay on him. Ha... lay on him while he was on stage. I don't know how he played with people laying all over him, but somehow the music kept on...
Anyway, I had one of these "special" passes, and when it got to be my turn, somehow something happened and the one of the guys in the band got sick. Anyhow, it must've been a keyboard player cos next thing I know, they're asking me if I can read these charts... so I say, "SURE!" So I guess not getting to lay on John was redeemed by getting to be in the band. I wonder if they kept me around? ha... DAMN waking up always gets in the way of AWESOME happenings.... I at least got to hear myself play a couple tunes... wish I remembered which ones....
