Milk Carton Kids at Summer Stage

Great music (The Milk Carton Kids, Lumineers, and Old Crow Medicine Show) + great friends = a wonderful evening!The photos are blurry and sparse because I wasn't actually supposed to have my camera, but because this was a big deal for my dear friend, Francesca, (her bf is one of the MCK and was playing in Central Park - eek so cool!!!), I decided to sneak it out again. Dancing and swaying under the stars when all three bands came out for the finale was just awesome.I had a "moment" that night. At some point, I looked up, noticed the Big Dipper and decided it was a perfect place for my summer blues. I threw my hands into the air and said, "goodbye summer depression, funk, whatever-you-are/were, see ya later!" It sounds silly, but I allowed myself to leave those feelings into the night air - to accept the stuff from the past few months and just let go. Releasing that energy allowed me to move. In what direction I'm not entirely sure, but movement is good. It allows room for so much more, forgiveness, compassion, and maybe there will be hope for love or at least shoulder to rest my head on while looking at stars. Surely, what I released that night can be turned into something more beautiful. Perhaps a meteor shower."Stars should not be seen alone. That’s why there are so many. Two people should stand together and look at them. One person alone will surely miss the good ones." - Augusten Burroughs
