Heat wave or no heat wave, it didn’t slow this old man down. I found myself toe tapping away in a crowd of about 14,000 last night. Looking around, I could tell that I was one of the few who didn’t pick my outfit off the rack from Justice/Claire’s with my BFF.  No, it wasn’t U2 or some indie band, but Taylor Swift. Yup.  Full disclosure here, I grew up on Public Image, Psych Furs, Pixies, Echo, etc., so in the words of David Byrne, “How did I get here?”

Acceptance. You can fight the cards that are dealt or play them out. I accept the fact that my time in the mosh pit is over and it’s my daughters’ turn to sing at the top of their lungs with eyes wide, taking in the incredible energy and youthful solidarity of their first concert. So pardon me while I speak now…I enjoyed it.  We should all enjoy the now because who knows what tomorrow will bring our way.
