So, appropriately and officially, this is our 500th post here. Can you believe that? I'm pretty blown away by it, and maybe it's silly, but happy. After the Wilco show at Marymoor tonight, Elvis and I took a long walk around, waiting for the traffic to thin out. We walked through the dark trees with all the weird lights from the fields shining through them and talked about Regan and Nelly's wedding, about the amazing religious experience of a show we had just seen, and about how my writing has become a stronger and stronger habit for me. I have both my writing group and this blog to thank for that, and I am so so grateful for both.
So, in order to celebrate, all you folks who leave us a comment on this post are getting a CD in the mail. I'm not saying it's going to include Wilco, but you know, it just might. I gotta tell you though, no matter who you are, you really do want to go out and buy Sky Blue Sky. I promise.
P.S. Way more Wilco to come, including my poetic musings on the shows, after I return from their Oregon show and Regan & Pete's wedding. See you Monday!
