Hello,

The images, words, and music of Paul´s concert still continue to fill our minds, hearts, and souls even a week later. My wife and I and our long time friend attended the concert last Saturday night at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle. It was one of those experiences that we will carry with us the rest of our lives.

We have listened to Paul´s work for over 35 years now. From listening during the birth of our children to planning on playing it when our memorial services are held, his words and music are woven into the fabric of our lives in such a rich way. This became even more visible about a month ago when we told our kids that we were going to the concert (they are 22 and 26 now and had come home for a visit). They were glad for us but said they wouldn´t want to go because it wasn´t their thing. (We had one extra ticket and had offered it to either of them that wanted to go). We joined in playing a board game later in the day and put on some CDs of Paul´s music. Before long we noticed that while we were playing everyone was tapping their feet and singing along. (These 2 kids have been listening to Paul´s music
since they were born and alot during the rest of the years they lived under our roof.) We realized that they might not want to go to a concert but the music itself was part of them.

We have been listening to the new CD ´You´re the One´ since it was released and it continues to delight and surprise us. We played it during this same visit from our kids. We noticed that our daughter had
stopped reading her book and had grabbed the sleeve from the CD jewel case to read the song´s words.

We shared with her when the CD was over how deeply these new songs touched us. There is the beautiful ballad of Frank and ´Darlin´ Loraine´ that brings tears to our eyes each time we hear it, there is the song ´Old´ that will give us hope as each new birthday comes with more candles on the cake to have to blow out, there is the tender ´Love´ which describes so well this gift that we all want so badly and yet have such a hard time maintaining and keeping, there is ´The Teacher´ that for many may be a warning about following others, but for us describes a beautiful relationship between a man or woman and their search for a connection to God, to ´Hurricane Eye´ that asks us to push ourselves when we yearn to be better people, to the questions about capital punishment in ´Pigs, Sheeps and Wolves´ and finally to the possible tender, last seasons that one may experience in life that are described in ´Over.´

This stage in his song writing career seems to us to be orchestrated by a man of wisdom and understanding. He releases words and music that describe our life experiences in a way that help us to see and understand them better. This is a powerful tool for learning more about ourselves and how we can love more and fear less.

After the concert and before we boarded the ferry we met our daughter. As she hugged us to say goodbye she whispered that she wished she had gone with us because she knew that it had been a transforming experience.

Our heartfelt thanks go to Paul Simon and the musicians in his band for giving us this great night that touched our lives in such a profound way. And we are looking forward to sharing part of our experience with our kids when the Paris concert is broadcast on our local PBS station next month.
