St. Louis, Missouri

One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain...

Since before leaving for Norway, Arvid reserved us a spot at the St. Louis Blues Festival and has been patiently awaiting for this day.  Well it's finally here and I can see a man already in heaven.  Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control we have cancelled the trip.

The reason is hurricane Issac.  Not a treat as a hurricane any longer, but it is leaving in its path torrential of rains, and St. Louis appears to be one of the places that will have lots of it this coming weekend.  This is too bad for we have been planning this since June.   Fortunately, there has been no extreme disasters when compared to hurricane Katrina 7 years ago.

Music is one of the things that brings out total relaxation and bliss to Arvid.  Not saying I do not enjoy the music, but it is noting compared to what Arvid feels.  He is transported into a whole new world where nothing matters and where he is at peace.

I love to watch him when he is like this.  Brutus makes him feel this way as well.  Seeing them together you would think that nothing else matters at that moment and you would be right. Same with the music.

Last year was the first year we started going to the St.Louis Blues Festival and if judging from last year, this year would also have been good.
 No matter what we will have a fun time in whatever we do.  Arvid already has a few thing planned so will see how it goes.
When we were there last year, we got to see The Gateway Arch.  Very impressive.  The deal I made with Arvid is that each time we go a new place for any kind of venue, be it business or just pleasure, I would like to see some kind of monument.  So far he has been good about it.

Well the weekend has almost begun.  Have fun everyone.  Time for us to make a few new plans.  Sounds good to me.  For me the fun is in the planning and in all the possibilities that are out there.
May you live in interesting times...

Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.
