The tickets were our kids Father's Day gift.
He opened on friday night with :
When he started this song, we were silent and a soft murmur of the words filled
the venue. He told us the story of Paul coming to his apartment and he had
written this song:
He gave us this song: The Boxer
He didn't sing AMERICA , but sung about my favorite American city:
He read poetry in-between songs. Told stories about Simon and himself.
He is missing THAT hair now. At 73, he is finishing up walking across
Europe. He walked across America when he was young. He writes poetry.
He had been in movies. He has read over 1205 books. See his lists on his website.
We heard him about 10 years ago with the Charlotte
Symphony and when he sang " Bridge Over Troubled Night" , I was transported
to heaven. His voice is how I hear the angels in heaven singng. He ended the friday
evening with a Q& A , then went into the last song:
Here is a poem he wrote for CBS , Notes to my younger self, and he wore the same shirt on Friday night.
This tells his life story and is very good. I do like good poetry!
Art Garfunkel inspired me. He thanked God for his voice at age 5 and still does. His voice
was lost a few years ago so this is his come back concert tour in small venues.
I saw what a CALLING is, what giftedness is, and he brought joy through his
singing, words, and his life to us. Thank you kids!
