Last night I was reminded of how good it feels to experience live music. There is something spiritiual about watching/hearing talented musicians connect to their music in front of you. It moves me, the way a good wine or good sex moves me. I feel lighter in my body somehow...as though the music thins my blood and lifts my heels off the floor.
I think people need to get out more and experience live music. It's going on every night, even in poor, depressed cities like Cleveland.
Being in the presence of good live music reminds me of what it felt like to be in church--people/strangers connected to something bigger than themselves for a moment in time.
