Consider Ourselves Lucky!

#51325 3 years, 2 months ago
There's so much to be grateful for!

Musically, I am very lucky to have Cuthbert on the horizon. (Bring raingear!) They will be my only Furthur shows of 2011. (not counting NYE 10-11)

We Northwesterners we lucky to have Phish @ The Gorge... which was epic.

I don't have to see EVERY show anymore. There were days... yes there were. I toured, heavily, from 85-90. Nowadays you can't cross the country for 20 buck. Everything is way more $$$.

Counting my blessings. Thank you for the music!

Excellent perspective, thanks very much! Whether I actually get to dance at a show, or if it's just in my living room, the joyful music is still with me! : )

I danced my way "to" my floor this morning. Trying to clean out the cobwebs from the Bobby show last night. Can not give a concise review right now. Overall, about an A-. How bout them Lions?

Ah, something else I'm very lucky to have in my life. Really, honest! ; )

People's income hasn't increased at a rate anywhere close to the cost of living.

i don't think that holds true for every profession or trade but i would agree with you to an extent on that for sure

edit: location is also variable for that

Upon reflection, I realize I saw 6 Northeast shows this summer spread out over 10 / 12 days. All outdoor shows, plus I only stayed in hotels for 4 nights, so I was camping about 7 days. Here's the money shot. NOT ONE DAY OR RAIN THE ENTIRE TOUR, not one drop of rain at any show (I was on tour from Friday before Bethel through and including PNC in NJ). And the weather was so hot (not complaining - I love it -- I would have expected some rain)

Only bad thing....my top 3 gd songs lately have been Black Throated Wind, Comes a time and Looks like Rain. Was an unexpected "miracle" to hear BTW and Comes a time back to back this tour, but NO LOOKS LIKE RAIN. No complaints here man. But I suspect if they played in the rain I may have caught the looks like rain.

So I consider myself blessed. The mother nature god's were looking down on me. Now the one thing I need is a left handed monkey wrench a kind mail order.

FFF! Family is Forever!!!

May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you
