A Kind of Hush

I really enjoy going to the oldie's shows.

Last night, Peter Noone and
Herman's Hermit performed 
in Annapolis, Md.

Ready for some fun!

The venue was great and our table sat right smack dab in front of the stage.


There was a kind of Hushhhhhh....  
All over the world last night....


As Peter Noone took the stage and swept the audience back to a sweeter place and time.  

A time of simplicity.  

Beginnings. 

 Hopes. 

Dreams.  

Innocent Love.


 Growing older has its perks though...   
And with any luck we grow in wisdom as we age.  
Things make more sense.  We understand our mortality and that the world that once revolved around us did not revolve around us after all.  We just thought it did. 


Peter Noone is one of the best performers I have seen so far.  He is energetic, funny, talented, and extremely kind.  

Growing older can be sobering.  Our lives are filled with obligations and heartaches.  We win some, we lose some.  And if we are not careful, we can become cynical and our hearts, hardened.  

But if we but close our eyes and listen to the music....  
We can be fourteen again....   

And life is just.  good.




Dear Diary,
Mom and dad were gone again.  I don't know if I can forgive them for leaving me (even though Lindsey was here to take care of me).  I will be angry for a very long time.  Or.  Until I get a belly rub.  Gracie.
