I went to see Josh Ritter Saturday night. His musical stylings and bouncy enthusiasm were a welcome distraction from my last several weeks of too much stress and too much emotion. Thank you Josh.
Some incredibly brilliant person had the incredibly brilliant idea to pass out glow sticks to the audience members. We lit them at the first notes of Lantern, much to Josh's surprise and delight. Incredibly brilliant idea, whoever you were.
I had a dream last night
and when I opened my eyes
your shoulder blade, your spine
were shorelines in the moonlight
new worlds for the weary
new lands for the living
I could make it if I tried
I closed my eyes I kept on swimming
it's only a change of time
