Had an awesome, albeit hot and sweaty, night out at The Greek for the Little Big Town show with my boo thangs. Music always has, and always will be, my soulmate.
Surprise of the night was a guest appearance by Tori Kelly mid-set. Definitely one of those times you’re lucky to be seeing a show in a city like LA where cameos are more likely to occur.
As much as I wanted to, I couldn’t bring myself to drop $30 for the Girl Crush snap back and/or $35 for the Mmmm Motorboatin’ tank top. Concert merch, why you gotta be so expensive? I shall wait for a sale in the online store like the bargain shopper I am.
I have never really considered myself an impatient person but have begun to notice that the older I get, the harder it is for me to be patient. As we age, we become more acutely aware of the passage of time and this feels even more true for me now with my birthday coming up. I am currently at a crossroads in my life – I know where I want to be and what I want to be doing, but can’t seem to get there fast enough to avoid frustration.
When we know what we want, it can be hard to trust in the journey it takes to get there. Because you have a clear picture in your head, you want the path to be as direct as possible. Of course what we WANT and what we NEED aren’t always in line, so the universe throws us curve balls and makes the damn road winding as hell.
Good people of the Interwebs…
My young friend Dylan, (8yrs) at CHLA, is in desperate need of O Negative blood donors. Anyone in the Los Angeles area who has not donated blood in the past 2 months and can go to CHLA twice (once for screening and once within the following 2 days to donate) please contact the CHLA blood bank at 877-543-9522. It’s important to tell them the donation is for Dylan Prunty. Because he is allergic to the storage solution the blood is kept in, Dylan can only receive fresh donations.
I met Dylan last year and have been in awe of him ever since. Both his passion for life and resilience in the face of his illness are inspiring. Despite the many months he has spent in the hospital, he fights on…building Legos, getting visits from pals like Pau Gasol, and organizing drives and events to help lift the spirits of other CHLA patients. He is truly a remarkable human being.
Let’s harness the power of social media to create magic and find some blood donors for Dylan! Please take a moment and share this info with any connections you may have in the Los Angeles area!
