“Invest in your inner world… Make a memory that will carry you through the winters of life.”
~ Sylvia Walters
Last night I was at one of the coolest weddings ever. The first person I ran into was my old friend Tony Adams whom I hadn’t seen in many, many years. By night’s end we landed in the house where we talked for a long time. If my feet hadn’t hurt so bad we’d still be talking because we had a lot to catch up on and I enjoyed every minute of our visit. Tony and I met back in the 1980’s when he was running sound for most of Lexington and I was the drummer for Radio Cafe, which later became Stealin Horses. Everybody in the band was older than me, including Tony who was still years away from 30, and I wasn’t old enough to get into the bars we played. Ah, youth! The more Tony talked last night, the fuller my heart grew. He’s genuinely happy, and loves his job as a chef. I met his wife Suzanne for the first time. She was a delight. What really melted my heart, though, was the way Tony talked about his daughter Savannah. His face turned to pure love. I don’t think he could be more proud. My world got brighter reconnecting with Tony and meeting his family. I hope it’s not so long before we get a chance to visit again.
