Florence + the Machine Concert
On October 4, my daughter Elizabeth and I attended the Florence + the Machine concert at Cricket Amphitheater in Chula Vista. The outdoor concert was wonderful, and our seating was amazing. The handicapped seats were right behind the mosh pit, so we were really close to the stage.
And the concert truly was incredible--Florence is one of the few singers whose voice is better in concert than on CDs. Her enthusiasm and love for her fans was inspirational, plus it's lovely to attend a concert in which the singer is dressed modestly.
And the art-deco screen behind Florence was incredible; sometimes it was lit softly, other times in bright solid colors, and at other times in full Tiffany stained glass images. The concert was truly a feast for our eyes as well as for our ears.
And what other concert could we attend with harp solos??? The music truly was incredible, and this concert was well-worth the time, money, and energy we expended.
So, I'll get back to work and writing now so that I might get the next chapter of Pinned but Fluttering up by Monday at the latest. (The next chapter is an outtake in Edward's POV of Chapter 44 and 45.)
