I have never seen so many people in one place in my life. Sure, I don't go to alot of major concerts. But there was at least 70,000 people crammed into A T & T ball park in San Franciso for the McCartney concert. It was 3 hours of non stop Beatles music (with some Wings and more recent songs thrown in). We took the Ferry from Marin County to San Francisco, had dinner at the Ferry Building and walked across the street to the Hyatt Regency and left our bags. We took the Muni underground to the ball park and waded through thousands of people to get into the park. Although he started an hour late, it was a phenomenal concert!! The music evoked past memories. Paul talked to us after each song and it felt so personal. We all seemed as one...a sea of bodies swaying together. But instead of lit cigarette lighters held aloft as in the old days...the light of thousands of cell phones flickered across the crowd, snapping pictures of the band. Wierd. After streaming out like a sea of salmon, we crammed our way onto the trolley car back to the Hyatt. Slept late and found an open German restaurant in the Embarcadero just as the World Cup finals started. Ate spaetzle and watched Spain defeat Netherlands. Back home on the ferry watching the city fade from view as fog crept in and shrouded it with white.
Life is a blank canvas on which we paint our impressions, experiences, wisdom, compassion, and laughter.
