This is not really a recap, not really a normal article. I am just feeling so good that the words flowed. Pretty sure this is acceptance and happiness for David and his strong decision. Love him more than ever. Also, I don’t have a clue how this happened. I am sure the sadness will come back at times, but right now, the overwhelming feeling is YES!! David is doing something he wants very much to do!!
I was planning on writing a recap of my time at the Verona show. But it turned out that I couldn’t. I could barely comment on anyone’s articles. (sorry) I was too sad.
But. Here’s the thing. I must have snapped out of it. For awhile, anyway. It’s starting to feel like Thanksgiving for some reason. I have never felt so grateful, so thankful, as I do right now. It started last night and has kept flowing throughout today. I hope this feeling stays.
So blessed to have such kindred spirits as all of you. ♥
So blessed to have found David almost 4 years ago. ♥
To get him. What he’s all about. To love him. And his music.
When David sang Good Place in Verona, a couple of friends and I sat right in front of him. Stunned. The mistakes mattered not. It was pure David. He laughed a little, but toward the end of the song, there was nothing but tender, heartfelt love pouring out of him.
After he finished, we said “this alone was worth the money, the travel problems, etc. If this was all we were to get it’d be worth it.” We were dead serious. And we still had an entire show after that.
I’ll never forget that feeling. I carry it around with me every day. It’s so good.
Nobody else can give us precisely what David gives us. We are so lucky. He really gave us the best of himself this past tour. If I hadn’t been able to go to the show, I would still have felt it through the videos. I HAVE felt it through videos.
David, this is exactly what we love about you. You didn’t have to do it, but you did. I hope you had as much fun, as much joy, as we did.
Now go spread your joy to the rest of the world who may be in need of it.
I may not know much, but I do know I’ll still be here, flailing over my favorite song.
And my favorite singer.
