Home State Wins Again!

I just wrote a post about Bruce’s show last night and then…oh, it’s too hard to explain, but basically I accidentally deleted it. So. Let me try again. I’m simultaneously jealous as hell and super happy about the show in Jersey last night. The…

Meeting Bruce Springsteen

The impossible happened. I met Bruce. The entire circumstance of how it happened seems incredibly random and completely perfect. Here’s the story. I live in Asheville, NC, which is about 9 hours from St. Louis. I had been thinking about adding the Sunday, March…

The River Tour: Sunrise and Atlanta

Following Bruce – A BucketList Adventure Begins

I’m going to follow Bruce Springsteen on tour around the South this spring. No tickets in hand, no set places to stay, not even 100% sure which cities I’m going to. It’s a journey of my heart’s longing and a return to the core…
