Then Thursday night came.
My good friend Josh came down from up north and we went to the House of Blues to see New Found Glory rock the house. I have seen them several times and every time they reassert themselves as the best band I've ever known. Experiencing anything musical or creative with Josh is always a treat. He has an appreciate of art that I found to be unique; a blend of elitism and pragmatic consumerism all rolled into one. He can appreciate the sublime, the mass, and perfection without comment but with commentary. I will always love him for that.
And now, I'm off to Hawaii. Thank heavens.
