Man, just when I think I have had the best weekends of my life, I have one that topped a lot of them. Anyhow, with the financial times being what they are and people losing their jobs I find it inspiring and enjoyable that you can get just as much out of a night of interesting conversation and a few drinks with a special person as you can popping bottles in some jaw-dropping club with the music dripping off the walls into the beats of your soul.....When i think that I know all there is about a certain species, some people just open my eyes and make me grin when they open their mouth to tell me their thoughts on life, love, family, and what makes them feel good.
In the same aspect, having the time of your life with a few great friends also makes life seem so worth it. I loved it. Being a few feet above ground level and watching the crowd from a slight distance as my friends just let it all out. I love that the friends I have now find absolutely nothing wrong with dancing, singing, raging, and being themselves around me and anyone else. I don't miss the days of being a tough guy who never had any fun and stood against the wall. Just not me. So these days, err nights, when I can smile for hours, pat my buddies on the back, dance like I'm in my own show, and hoot and holler at the top of my lungs....well, that's when I feel alive. I know it may sound stupid, but if you're a fan of music, any kind of music, it just moves you in ways that nothing else can.
I was impressed by everyone and everything that happened this weekend. Sometimes I think you just need to put yourself out there and let yourself absorb what people have to offer your life. Don't shut yourself out to the possibility of feeling all that a night may have in store for you......even if you may question some of your actions or feelings; you can wake up the next day and start all over, but come on....who regrets a night of pure, unadulterated fun? I don't. Never have, never will.
As much fun as I have writing, I get just as much enjoyment listening to life.
