in about 30 minutes i’ll be leaving for what is going to to be the most significant rock and roll experience in my entire life. yes, in 30 minutes i will begin my pilgrimage to worship at the altar of st. paul westerberg.
i must admit i am more than a little bit bummed out that i will have to worship alone. even though IF i had someone to go with me, we couldn’t have sat together anyway. the only reason i got the ticket to the sold out concert is because i wanted only one.
it is only fitting, going alone. i don’t think there’s anyone in my life who can understand the magnitude of this concert, of hearing the gospel from paul’s lips. ‘sides, he is the man who wrote so beautifully about loneliness, it’s only fitting, no?
