A Concert

I went to a concert by the Escher String Quartet last night. I liked the music, and loved getting to go. {SMILE}

I haven't been to a concert in years, ever since Mom and Dad decided they couldn't sit thru a long concert between Mom's back's tendency to give her trouble, and Dad's need to put his feet up or walk around or something. He's not supposed to sit still for long periods of time. That pretty thoroughly messed up my transportation options, so I've been pretty much pretending that Hilo doesn't have any shows I want to see for several years now. {resigned smile}

They do have a few, like last night's concert. Fortunately, a friend who lives a block or two away offered to take me with her. I bought my ticket when I got there, and had a wonderful time. The music was pretty nice, especially since it was live. Even better, I got to see a few folks I haven't bumped into in years during the intermission. {SMILE}

I enjoyed myself so much, I'm trying to figure out how to do this a little more often. I'm hoping to think of something. I've missed this entirely too much. {SMILE}
