BRUUUUUUUCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I went to see Bruce Springsteen last night. And i can honestly say i had a healing of sorts. I've been feeling a little sad and tired and down lately, like my batteries are running low. But just a few minutes in the arena with Bruce Springsteen, and i'm back in business. My husband and i count 5 Springsteen concerts under our belts. The first one was at RPI back in the late 70's/early 80's... He was very young and all over the place then. One minute he would be standing on stage, the next on top of the piano, then sliding across the stage again, just like this . You got tired just watching him! But last night, even tho he's 60 years old and not quite as sprightly, his energy and electricity is amazing. There were folks older than me and Bruce there last night, and many many more that were younger, and i am willing to bet they have NEVER seen a concert like that before. When you go to see Bruce Springsteen, you can be sure that no matter what the ticket costs, he is worth every single penny and more. He performed for almost 3 hours last night, never taking a break, dripping with sweat, his energy boundless. Amazing...And there is something that his music does to people. It connects us, inspires us, injects us with energy and enthusiasm... He mixed his classics with his new stuff and had us on our feet all night. Amazing....I feel 10 years younger this morning....just amazing....
