Last night in the heat of a late summer night my sisters and I went to see the Indigo Girls. Does everyone have a band that they grew up with? I first saw the Indigo Girls play on the Memorial Union terrace at the University of Wisconsin in the summer of 1988. They were just making it big but they kept their promise to play a free college campus concert. It was a magical night.
Last night was magical too, in a different way. I was glad to be at the concert with my sisters, but sad that so much time has passed. Maybe the passage of time always seems sad, even if wonderful things have happened in the interim.
Here's me and my sisters at dinner:
I hope my girls will be friends with each other, lifelong friends, and that they will stick together. Like us, see Exhibit A, above.
And so I don't forget (my memory is imperfect) - the Indigo Girls played Devil Went Down to Georgia! And Galileo and Closer to Fine and Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee! And Watershed! I could have listened to them for 2 more hours!
