hi you,

I'm the tourist on the metro, lover of markets and dresses, a writer in the local coffee shop, and the friend who is always up for a picnic and conversation. 
Welcome to L. Raine

Concert on the Green

Concert on the Green

 I have a little collection of recent happy things, not the least being a concert on the green in Davidson last night. It's something I've been wanting to do for at least a year, and one might think that as Davidson is a little less than an hour from my flat I could have gone before this, but alas I was always gone or busy on those summer nights. 

Until last night. Several of us friends drove out through a rainstorm to this outdoor concert, because we are hardy folk (and because we knew of a coffee shop nearby where rain doesn't matter). On the way we collected sweet potato fries and some drinks and planted ourselves in the green to steep in the post-rain world. The rain delayed things, but about an hour after the start date, the musicians separated their gear from the puddles and the music began. 

I thought you might have fun scrolling past the amazing sky last night. 

The camaraderie these events spark make me glad to be alive - as does the sun shining on treetops and the weather cooling a touch. I don't fancy myself as a particular lover of autumn, but the first signs of autumn make me almost giddy. Me not being in love doesn't look promising. 

The concert last night was classic rock, and I enjoyed it way more than I expected, with songs such as 'Brown-eyed Girl' and 'Dock of the Bay'. I forget from time to time how much I enjoy that kind of music live.  

I'd like to go back for the live jazz on September 18th, but with this autumn's schedule one hardly knows. For now, the rain, the sky, the music, and the friendships of last night's time are satisfying.
