Why is Life Cold?
i actually have a very happy life. i just saw this graphic one day and got an inspiration for another blog.
why not write about the stuff that makes life cold? from the huge, catastrophic, life-altering events to the seemingly trivial, little incidents
that rub you the wrong way. it doesn't have to be a personal experience, it can be something observed.
on writing these down, my intent is to learn to appreciate life more and have a better handle on things when life throws you a curve ball. i want whoever
will read this to contemplate, not get depressed. hopefully, you'll share with me your experiences as well so we can learn from each other.
I Usually Don't Like Eagles, Especially the Blue Kind
About a week ago, my hubby and I saw the Eagles in concert - their California Tour. This was my Father's Day present to my husband last June because I know he loves the Eagles. Although I'm familiar with them, walking into the arena I wasn't expecting to be totally blown away, as I was three and a half hours later walking out.
I am a big fan of Don Henley, so I thought I would at least enjoy his bits. To my amazement, I knew almost every song they sang, including some that made me go "Oh, I didn't know that's theirs!" like I Can't Tell You Why and Love Will Keep Us Alive. The whole night was chock-ful of hits, including Don Henley's, Glenn Frey's and Joe Walsh's hits as solo artists so the night had a lot of added bonus.
My only disappointment was that they didn't sing Heart of the Matter, my all-time favorite Don Henley song. Nonetheless, I enjoyed myself fully, singing along with the songs. All in all they played 29 songs, with Hotel California, Rocky Mountain High, All She Wants to do is Dance, Already Gone and my husband's personal favorite, Desperado as their encores. Glancing at my husband all throughout the show, I can tell he's having a great time too.
Later on, he said that they sound exactly the same as they did thirty years ago. I'm pretty sure that's a good thing, because they sure gained a new fan out of me!
