05.07.12 I'll be seeing Ben for the first time!
Even though I have been a great fan of Mr. Harper for the last 12 years or so, I began following his career @ that time. His music was an inspiration to me through so many obstacles and changes that occured in my life, that it is "home" for me now to hear his music. It's funny how a song can make you feel like living, and loving again. I know now just why God made music. I think that the man as a human being and the energy that he expresses through his expressions carries much more weight than most would be willing to admit. I'll be the first to say that Ben Harper is a tremendously gifted man, and his contributions to the music world will never be forgotten. His drive, and talent inspire me to be the best that I can possibly be, and never to forget how to stop and smell the flowers along the way. It could never be that bad. Thanks Ben Harper for being you, and having the courage to express your wonderful gifts and contributions to the world of music. I will be going to Vienna, Virginia to see his concert for the first time. I hope to be able to get his autograph, or like so many who dream of that front row seat, my arms flailing towards him, I'm standing up, I can feel little drops of sweat pop against my face, he is playing my favorite song, no it's the other favorite one, I'm in Heaven! If I was blindfolded, I would still be happy just to hear my favorite melodies. God-Bless and take care. See you there Mr. Harper in Vienna, Virginia!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
