Well the beautiful and amazing Mrs. Shife won me over and convinced me that we should go so we are going. And it will be OK. Tomorrow might be a another long day but we will manage and in the long run going out with Mrs. Shife for a fun evening is worth way more than losing some sleep. Plus I re-read a blog post from 2007 about how going to a Roger Clyne and The Peacemakers concert made me feel, and it couldn't hurt to experience some of his concert magic again. And if you want you can read it too because it is right down there. Do you see it? Thanks for stopping by and I will talk to you tomorrow.
So thank you Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers for making April 4, 2007 a great day. You guys put on one helluva show as usual and I am so glad I discovered your music.
Have a great weekend, and if you have something out there that makes you happy please focus on it. We all get so wrapped up in the hustle and bustle of life that sometimes we forget to step back and exhale. Whatever that thing is … that piece of sunshine or hope that makes you really appreciate life. Whether it is getting ready for your favorite team’s next home game or taking a walk with your best friend just make sure you do it more often than not because I like it when you smile.
P.S. The title of the post is from a song called "Mekong." Before Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers, they were The Refreshments, and Mekong is from their first album. The chorus is below.
It's always happy hour here
If it is I'd like to stay a while
And as cliche as it sounds
I'd like to raise another round
And if you bottles empty
Help yourself to mine
Thank you for your time
And here's to life
I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.
