So I've been listening to alot of Ernie Halter and Tony Lucca this week. A friend introduced me to them via the lovely world of youtube. Here is a good sample of them together! They are individual artists, though, with great original songs.
Ernie Halter does a cover of Pretty Girl that I love. That's where the title of my post comes from today. In this song, the girl is referred to as a magazine and he follows up with "I want to turn your pages." And he also mentions the phrase, "to know her is to love her." That is so true with girls. We feel loved when someone knows us well. Even at work today, a husband surprised his wife with a drink from Sonic I think and he knew exactly what to get her......and i'm not talking a regular Dr. Pepper. It was something fancier. It just means something so deep to girls to be known in whatever detail. For example.....my birthday was Monday and my parents drove in Saturday to go to the ArtsFest and listen to me play. My Mom made this quilt for me!!! My dad chose the fabric on the back and the verse embroidered on the back. I LOVE details. My mom named the quilt "Eleni's Tulips". I studied abroad in Greece for a semester and Eleni is my Greek name. Tulips are my favorite flower. My mom thought the fabrics were all watery colors so she embroidered the names of all the places I visited in Europe while abroad. Ah and thank you to everyone that came to the show on Saturday!!! Your faces are such a comfort to me and make me somehow more into it because I feel that to an extent you either understand or want to understand. So thank you Anne, Lesley, Kris, Terry, Candy, Mike, Teresa, Mom, Dad, Adam, Katherine, Cayla, Brett, Dominic, Lui, Jay, Brett, Bev, Melissa, the man in the back wearing a hoodie that likes Van Morrison, and whoever else I didn't know or may have missed. mm you guys bless my heart!
I'm playing again this Saturday from 3-3:50pm-ish on Commercial Street in Springfield, MO at the C-Street Jam. There will be several stages of different styles of music throughout the evening. I will be at the Footbridge stage. I'm told that it is cheaper to buy your tickets before the event. I hope to see you there!!! :c)
