Hello - is there anybody out there?
I was just reminiscing about this blog and all the cool people I met through it. I'm still in touch with some of you on Facebook, which is so nice!
I read something the other day about "music snobs" and I used to proudly consider myself one. Their definition is someone who thinks that the music from their era is the best and won't even consider that some of the new music is "worthy". Ha. That was so me!
Yet here I am listening to Pandora and clapping along with Pharrell because it makes me "Happy". I still think music from the 60's, 70's and some 80's is the BEST, but life's too short not to listen to popular music along with the Rock and Roll.
Next up on Pandora: Adele. I wonder if this is a sign of old age? I assure you, I will still be blasting Bruce, Zeppelin, CCR, Floyd, etc. when I'm in my 80's!
If you read this - how are you???? What's new?
As far as my son and his addiction, things keep getting worse. We're 8 years into it and he's currently in jail waiting for his sentence to prison (2 - 5 years). I wish I could say he's "safe" from drugs in there, but that's a joke.
But I'm doing good. I've learned the key to survival: Acceptance. That doesn't mean I've given up, it just means that there is nothing I can do about it. I do grieve the loss of him, even though he's still living, he's not the same person and most likely never will be. Its a daily battle for him and for me.
NEW YORK — Bruce Springsteen has announced the first dates for his European tour with the E Street Band.
They’ll play four shows in England next summer.
