impressed by an oldie

Been so busy this week trying to get everything organized to present the new dt & a newsletter, update the shop, think up new workshops oh and do some scrapping too LOL. So that's why I didn't post a lot this week.
I should be presenting the girls next week if all goes well ... so stay tuned for that.

Last night I took my mother to a Janis Ian theatreconcert and she had a blast ! (i could tell because when she kept poking an elbow in my side, a sure sign she's having fun & is excited....)



After the concert she came to the lobby to sign cd's & ticket stubs how awesome is that. Never seen prince, lenny or mary j blige do that.... anyhoooooooooooooo this scrapbooker didn't think of bringing her camera (didn't fit in my mini purse) and hey who expected a photo opp. @ a concert ? So I used my mobile (but hey the lighting is just horrible so so is the photo ....) and I will probably use the above photo from internet to scrap about this.



A few things that I thought was so great about the concert were, it brought me back to my childhood (my mother always had music in our house, she was quite the hippie until I was about 12 so Janis Ian and Carol King are no strangers to me ...), she told all kind of stories inbetween the songs and this story is one that touched me in particular, that her voice is still as amazing at 55 as it was when she was in her 20's. I was very impressed !

In my experience, taking your mother to a concert always turns out really well!

And the story about Janis'mother... brought tears in my eyes... I know what to expect with a sister who has MS...

Geweldig om met je moeder naar haar oude idool te gaan! Heb ik ook met mijn vader gedaan een aantal jaren geleden (Mary Black)... die herinnering brengt nog steeds een glimlach op mijn gezicht... Goed idee om erover te scrappen!

We went to a concert of Janis Ian last year in Zaandam. She has such al lovely voice and hearing her sing 'at seventeen' takes me back in time when that number was played a lot on the radio in the eighties.
