Happy Birthday John

music is the fluid carrying my spirit through my soul and words are the cells forming the bodies of my dreams... I think in rhyme and feel in melody and seek to share a world of harmony... yeah, music is as close to a religion as I've got and it fits me well...

it is challenging to produce a list of favorite artists or songs because all genres and many artists appeal to me depending on my mood... and the artists I can see at any given time is dependant on who comes to town (or within a few hours drive) during the year...

for music lovers (or anyone who might like to meet at a concert, if you can find me, or wanna tell me you are going), at the moment these are the concerts I've got tickets for or music events I intend to attend (and I included some of the ones I already enjoyed... if I left any out you can check Tasha's calendar on her myspace)... and remember to check out or help out with the The Social Orlando if you live in Florida...

and enjoy your life (in case it's the only one you get)
