Yes, I just got home from the Dave Matthews show at the beach. And yes, it reminded me ‘Why I Am’.
Just standing in the Jones Beach Amphitheater – even in the bad seats – on a July night, with the smell of the ocean all around me, I am quite sure this is ‘Why I Am’. Hearing the music I love (that I discovered before my kids, the DMB groupies, thank you very much) I realized there is nothing like a night like this to soothe the soul.
Listening to the lyrics of Dive In I was taken by the irony of one particular line:
“Tell me everything is all taken care of by those qualified to take care of it all.”
It occurred to me that I am usually that person.
Crap! I am screwed.
I guess that’s Why I Am.
