7 Things You Might Not Know About Me:
1.) I never said patience wasn't a virtue. I said it wasn't one that I possess . ;)
2.) So that rude person tailgating your car with their headlights blinding you this morning? That was me. Sorry.... :(
3.) In some ways, it seems like I was born/built to be a nurse, but I think it surprised some people that I made it at all.
4.) There was a time in my life when my only dream was to go to conservatory and be a professional cellist. Sometimes, I still wonder what would have happened to me if that had worked out.
5.) But, you know that saying about finding yourself in a place you never planned yet it being exactly where you were meant to be? Sums up my life.
6.) I dabble in creative writing, and would like to try my hand at something good enough to be published someday.
7.) I am a die-hard, "I will fight you to the death" Rafa Nadal fan. He is my tennis version of Il Volo. :)
I feel so blessed that I found Il Volo and that they have opened up and changed my life in so many ways. I'm so busy trying to get through life sometimes, I forget to enjoy it. Il Volo reminds me to do that. :)
Some articles I have seen have harsher, more definitive leanings about what they think is the cause and who is to blame, but for the purposes of this piece, that is not necessarily important. It’s more important that people’s lives have been changed, and the people of Geona are grieving. Our hearts go out to the Italian people at this time.
It has recently come to our attention that our chosen “theme” for the website has been retired, and we have to choose a new one. I have tried to choose something that will have a minimal impact on the look/function/and features you already know and love.
The change will take place this weekend, so please bear with me while we get everything in place.
You’re probably wondering how we can have a Flashback Friday when The Guys never sang the song that inspired today’s title. I apologize; sometimes, you have to be in my brain to be able to follow along…. :p
I was going through various social media/news feeds last night and was again saddened at the amount of fighting, dissent, hate and general discord that pervades it all these days. I think our world is in turmoil, and everyone feels very strongly about what is wrong, what is right and what needs to be done to fix it. But along the way, we are forgetting how to be nice. I miss the times when two people could disagree and it didn’t mean that one of them was any of the number of popular names and insults that we hear thrown around; it didn’t mean that your friendship was in jeopardy. I wish there was a time when more people believed that we have more similarities than differences, and that we could treat each other with a little more respect and understanding.
I wished that more people could believe that WE ARE LOVE.
I remember my first Il Volo concert in Chicago. I remember how my heart nearly burst when this song started to play. I am sure that not every person in the Chicago Theater agreed about politics, foreign policy, or was raised with the exact same core belief system, but for that night, we were one. We were all enjoying the same music, and being equally blown away by The Guys. There was love among us that night.
Won’t you flashback with me? What are some of your favorite memories/feelings of your first concert with Il Volo?
Come in and share the love of life, friends and Il Volo!
