54-40 - PNE - August 30, 2008 (First time seeing them live. Saw them again on Canada Day 2009)

Billy Bragg - "I Keep Faith" Tour - St Andrews Wesley Church - June 5, 2008 (Saw him for the first time April 2007 at the Commodore - friend had free tickets. It was the first time I actually ever heard of him, to tell you the truth. Now, I am looking forward to seeing him again in November, back at the Commodore).

Me and my ladies - front row centre at the Mellencamp concert(we rushed the stage). Well, we politely asked the security guard (that's him behind me) and he said it was okay. A great place for the girls to watch their first concert. They tried to get John's attention to have him autograph their shirts, but it didn't work out. A roadie did give them a guitar pick each as we were leaving the show though.

Bruce Springsteen - Magic Tour - March 31, 2008 - (This was the first time I saw Springsteen live. Amazing show. When I tell my friends (the ones who are fans, anways), how great the show was, they all say the same thing, "That's why they call him The Boss."

The Springsteen photo I had to get from a website as I did not have my camera with me at that concert.

Poetry: an imaginative awareness of experience expressed through meaning, sound, and rhythmic language choices, so as to evoke an emotional response.

Storytellers deliver unique insight into humanity. Good storytelling is powerful and can motivate people as well as entertain them. A storyteller enhances the actual story by making an art form out of the telling of the story.
