Day 2370: Based on a true story

All my blog posts are based on a true story, so it’s true that I love starting today’s blog post with a true image from my true friend Barbara’s truly lovely home.

Yesterday, Barbara

  • went with me to see guitarist Pat Metheny for Barbara’s first time,
  • had the best fish dish of her entire life,
  • took selfies of herself and her friend of sixty-three years (me),
  • swapped amazing stories with her friend,
  • admired the gorgeous concert venue in Rockport Massachusetts,
  • experienced the wonder of synchronicity,
  • was, as usual, a wonderful friend,
  • enjoyed many adventures, and

these are all true stories!

We have proof that these stories are true, because of all these true photographs:

Barbara and I both agreed that we truly enjoyed Pat last night especially when he involved more instruments than just one solo guitar. I told her the true story of his development of his own incredible Orchestrion, of which he had a small sample on stage with him last night.  I also told her the true story of how I saw Pat play at the Orpheum theater in Boston a decade ago when his Orchestrion album came out, and how truly amazing that was.  She wished she could have seen more of that, so this is truly for you, Barbara:

 

I’m looking forward to all your true stories, below.

My gratitude is always based on true stories, so thanks to Barbara,  to true friendship, to Pat Metheny, to all who helped me create today’s true post and — truly! — to YOU.

In case you didn’t know, you’re looking at today’s blog post at “The Year(s) of Living Non-Judgmentally.”

What are you looking at in these photos from yesterday?

You’re looking at a few scenes from our new home AND many photos from yesterday’s trip to the extraordinary Shalin Liu Performance Center in beautiful Rockport, Massachusetts, where my ex-sister-in-law Deborah and I looked at Jim Messina and his band (which includes Craig Thomas, an old friend of my old friend Dave). During the concert, we looked at the band playing one of my favorite tunes about looking: “Angry Eyes” by Jim Messina.

If you look at that video, you’re looking at the same lineup we saw last night and you’re hearing a GREAT sax solo by Craig.

Thanks to all who helped me create this post you’re looking at and — of course! — to you, for looking here, now.
