The Swell Season in Central Park.
I play all tough sometimes, but in reality, I'm a complete softie. Smiling babies warm my heart. Sunrises fill me with hope. The majestic beauty of the sharks at the aquarium make me all moody, for crying out loud. I'm ridiculous.
Some songs give me uncontrollable goosebumps. Music is one of those things I need to have while writing, thinking, working ... living. Last night, Chris and I and two of our friends went into the city to see The Swell Season in Central Park. I've seen Glen Hansard perform with The Frames several times, and he performs with the kind of passion and convinction that would cause me to vote him President of Everything, should such an election come up. And Marketa Irglova, his co-star in the movie Once, brought nothing short of the same passion.
Listening to music under the stars in Central Park ... hell of a way to spend a Wednesday night.
