So I'm feeling out of the Train loop. So many of my online Train friends are going to the last show of the SMSF tour in Erie and I am so happy for them. But really sad that my life is hog-tying me to responsiblilty. A few years ago I could just arrange and go. This year, not so much.
I had a great time in Columbia Md a few months ago with new found Train friends and am most grateful for their kindness and generousity. I wanted to make that show with my husband and since the income was on a stand still at the time I wrote that show off. Funny how things just happen when you just go with the flow. Meaning--I wanted it soooo bad but since the timing was bad, let it go. Sadly but out of necessity. And then something wonderful happened! A ticket was available and my husband actually said GO! And then out of the blue the ticket was given to me as a gift! WOW!!!!!
That show was incredible. We were in the pit and as always, I/we scootched up as far as we could and found ourselves in between Pat and Jimmy with only a few young girls heads in front of us. Girls who had never seen Train live and who we told that they were in for the show of a lifetime!! They agreed, of course, during Train's set!
I've had a great time seeing them in Balto & DC, Lancaster, PA, Vienna, VA, Worcester, MA and Columbia, MD. But it sure would be great to see them in Erie. But that's OK. And no, this time I will be home. Home (or work, or with my band mates, or family---maybe I'll get to see my grand daughter! She's in PA and I don't get to see them as often as I'd like) because life at the moment is filled with total obligation. Some fun and some not so much.
It's my life. And there is a rythmic ebb and flow to this crazy ride! So I'm ebbing right now And I hope you all know it is not because I don't love ya's anymore, it's 'cause that's where I am right now. I love you all, you are my friends and I have distinct feelings as to who you are as best I can since I've not actualy met alot of you. But you all love Train and that is the biggest connection. I love these guys like they were close friends. I think. In my mind they are perfect. With songs that touch me deeply they are perfect.
Train- Pat, Jimmy, Scott, Hector, Jerry,Thomas--you have brought many, many great moments to my life and for that I love you:) Ana, thank you girl for bringing sexy girl power to the Train stage! You have no idea how great that was for me to see you on that stage! So guys, I look forward to the new CD and wait patiently. I'm a very patient person. Sometimes it's the near death of creative and everyday decisions but I think for the most part it works for me. This is me.
So Train come back soon. Everyone enjoy time with your family. Enjoy the holidays. All my soul sisters, I love ya. You are a special family to me. And Train, know you have a huge fan that will be waiting in Winchester, VA!! Enjoy the fall y'all!!! Yehawwwww:D
