Thanks Bruce for 30 amazing years!

Pay it Forward

there are alot of things i should be writing about today….however….i’m just sticking with what constantly gives me peace and makes me happy….thanks bruce.
i remember my first concert in d.c. when i was just a child…little did i know how bruce would change my life….
after rosalita and born to run, nothing was ever the same for me….
i followed bruce around the country and escaped into a promised land through 4 hours of his concerts over the course of 30 years…..
the innocence of the experience gave way to living life with dreams i would nurture.
bruce was in my head when i went in for cancer surgery — my cool doctors played “dancing in the dark” in the operating room for me…
bruce saw me through recovery and a four hour concert at MSG — my first outing with a wig — he gave me strength and the courage to move on — there is a freedom at a concert that once just can’t account for…
9/ll came and went…life went on, however, bruce didn’t forget…nor did i. the country found a way through his music to save those who needed saving…
i won’t complain about those smells that emanate throughout stadiums…..just part of the experience….
now he makes me smile as i live moment by moment as i care for those around me….singing in the car with bruce makes me happy and sane….
i’d love to meet him, however, not sure words could explain how he changed my life….i want to keep the image…an image…
all i want is to be free…if only for four hours….
