Cool Places

by | Aug 7, 2010 | 0 comments

Seems since I first met you- you were taking me to cool places I never would’ve gone otherwise. These are just a few that come to the top of my head- I know there were so many more cool things we did. I’d usually feel out of place and not know what to wear- so I’d just wear black. I’d come in a cab, excited, touching up my make-up on the way there. I’d either meet you outside or go inside and find you. You’d be rehearsing or doing a sound-check- as cool as ever…and then you’d see me and smile. Whether it was sitting in a small bar on the lower east side, or doing something more glamorous- I loved being the one you smiled at. Loved it. Will think of it all of my life.
  • Was on VH1 Storytellers with Wyclef Jean- and surprise guest Bono- at the Copa Cabana in NYC.
  • Went to a party at Henri Bendel during Fashion Week where all of the celebs were looking around at the insanely expensive new clothes on display
  • Went to a VOGUE magazine party in a penthouse of some really fancy building and sat next to and made small talk with some VIP at Sony.
  • Got to meet my teen idol when you woke him in his dressing room- Joey Mcintyre of New Kids on the Block- when your old band opened up for him on tour.
  • Got to climb around backstage in Williamsburg the first time you played with Regina- at 8 months pregnant- taking pics of you.
  • Met Leigh Nash after a concert at The Bottom Line and gave her our pretty crummy CD.
  • Got a signed CD from Patti Griffin wishing me a happy 27th birthday.

On the eve of your death I am watching town fireworks the day after the fourth of July. I am overwhelmed by the crowd of families around us on blankets with glo-sticks and cotton candy as we wait for darkness in the still, hot, summer air.  There is a Korean...

Father’s Day 2013

This is the third time.  It is brutal.I haven't felt it helpful or complex enough to say, "It's not fair; it's just not fair," in the past three years.  But on this day, I think those words a lot. Unless your young child has lost a parent, you cannot imagine...
