Alright alright, you talked me into it...


Here's me and daughter at last night's Indigo Girls gig at Manchester Academy 2. I'm the one who looks older. And a bit overwhelmed...




Below are pictures that demonstrate two important things: first, the Indigo Girls are just magnificent. Second, I need a better camera.








Catherine Feeny, the support act, was fabulous. She has a strong, soaring voice and her style reminds me a little of Patty Griffin. I bought the album and suggest you check her out. One of her songs is currently featuring in the movie Running With Scissors. After Feeny came the main event. My heroes, the Indigo Girls. And yes, they were everything I expected them to be and more. Utterly amazing, pitch perfect, incredible guitar skills. I was waving my arms in the air and stamping my feet with the rest of the crowd. The playlist was fantastic, it included Last Tears, Land of Canaan, Jonas and Ezekiel, Kid Fears, Pendulum Swingers, Little Perennials and Chicken Man. I could really only have wished for Ozilline. Amy and Emily chatted with the audience, Amy fluffed her lyrics a couple of times and laughed it off, it was just such a friendly, warm, powerful evening. Standing there, holding hands with daughter, the love of my life, I was struck by the unexpected thought that my life is good.

Hey, how lovely to see a smiley (overwhelmed?) picture of you. I'll have to check out Indigo Girls, seen as they come so highly recommended.

Yay! I'm glad you had such a great time, and I think it's wonderful you were able to go with your daughter.

Great to see a picture of you-especially a happy one. Isn't it strange when you think life is good?!

Pippa, your posts so often make me smile - and this one is no exception.

Lovely to *see* you.
