not enough time to come up with a title.

day two.
I already don't know if I'll be able to do this. I've been racking my brain all day to come up with something to write. Even now while I'm watching ATL beat NO, I don't really want to write this but I want to say I did it so.... here goes nothing. Here goes procrastinating graphic design some more.

Thursday I went to a Phil Keaggy Concert
His finger-picking was melodic dessert
I'd never heard of this guy before
but listening to him is not a chore
I've had his songs stuck in my head for a day
I have them on my computer on replay
He opens his mouth and his voice leaves me in awe
He is such a cute old man I wish he was my grandpa

Okay that's all I can come up with for now. But seriously, Phil Keaggy is considered one of the best. He has been doing this for over 30 years. He is the 9th of ten children. He only has 9 fingers (injured it while pumping water for his mom.) We had "bouncers" at our concert and one of the girls told him he needed to have a ticket. His response was " I was hoping to play tonight." I bet she felt really stupid but it's a good story.
