I had the pleasure and privilege of seeing Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt a few nights ago. First of all, let me just say this: Julia Roberts, I get it! That night was mixed with the voice of John Hiatt whose voice is the rugged vibrations of a man who has lived many lives. At times old and melancholy, and at times young and silly and most times straight from the heart. Paired with Lyle’s sweet storytelling, the voice of a soft, massaging lullaby for the soul. there is nothing like going to a concert and closing your eyes and eating up the food for thought and dreams. Never having to open your eyes in fear missing some great pyrotechnic or a flash of some iconic dance move. We went not just to see them, but to be with them. And when one comes willingly without expectations, usually you will be rewarded with some surprise. Like any well-bred native son of Michigan, Jeff Daniels joined Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt for a song or two, and I was duly impressed.
Thanks so much to my kick-$%! chickie, Jane for inviting me and sharing a post birthday celebration with her! Cheers to you most righteous babe!
