On multiple occasions this past weekend, I thought of Shawn and wished he were still around to capture those moments when everything linked up perfect, the music, lights, crowd, energy, etc.  I took a moment to simply be thankful for my life. I was thankful to be at a show at all, and when the band screwed up, I laughed it off with them. When they didn't deliver on the songs I wanted them to, but then surprised me at other times, I took it for what it was.

Regardless of what you think of the shows so far this tour, or the state of Phish in general, if you take a moment at every show when the lights are just right and take a mental picture (because thats the only one you're going to get), I think you'll find your appreciation for the moment to be greatly heightened.

Here. Here.
I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

I can dig that, we are all very lucky.

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

Well put.

I def. did this during Rift, when Page was going nuts on the first night.  It was just surreal being back at Hampton, watching my favorite band.  I've been seeing that band play that room for 15 years now.  What a treat!

It's weird asking randoms on the twitters for pictures for my blog.
Shawn had an amazing eye.
