On August 26th, I had the good fortune to attend a Bonnie Raitt concert at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado. The only naturally-occurring, acoustically perfect amphitheatre in the world, this place – even when there is no concert – is majestic and spiritual. However, when Bonnie Raitt plays there it becomes extra special, not to mention, magical.
What was awesome about this performance was not only Bonnie’s amazing talent as a singer, songwriter and musician, but the abundance of gratitude she shared throughout the night.
I thought it fitting to post this on Labor Day – a day that celebrates workers – because Bonnie certainly showed her appreciation for the road crew that set up the stage (in the hot sun).
However, she not only thanked her stagehands, she thanked her band members, opening act (the fabulous Mavis Staples), the audience, her parents, fellow songwriters who have inspired her and more. Connecting with her audience, she oozed love and authenticity. And, you could tell it came from deep within her heart and soul. It was inspiring, touching and genuine, not performance hype.
Each morning (or sometimes in the evening) I think about what I’m grateful for. One item on that list is YOU. Thanks for being a member of my online community, for sharing your thoughts on this blog, for e-mailing me when you have questions and for passing referrals my way. I appreciate your kindness and loyalty.
What are you grateful for today? Please share your thoughts in the comments section. I’d love to hear from you.
