Like an old termite-ridden stump, summer 2019 is burned up.
We planned to spend as much of the summer outdoors as possible. We did that. I didn’t want to use the precious summer months pounding out words about music. So I wrote as much as I felt like. I didn’t get to comment as much. I had to sacrifice something to make the most of my favourite season. Music was there with us every day. I just wanted to enjoy the moments instead of figuring out how to write them down.
Hard to believe another summer has burned away.
There was no single artist who dominated this summer (like Blotto did in 2018). We enjoyed a variety of Van Halen, Judas Priest, Stompin’ Tom, Whitesnake, Deep Purple, Rainbow, and Helix without rhyme or reason.
It’s already getting colder. The nights are starting sooner. I can feel the end of the season creeping, and our summer at the lake is over.
At least we made the most of it.
