i hit save on this post and went back to you tube. i had noticed a video in the side bar that i want to watch. this one:
i don't know if you can get just how special that night was from the video. i think you can but i'm biased. it was an amazing night. it was almost the end of our first year in portland and it was great but it had been rough. things were starting to feel good though. we were starting to feel settled. i remember knowing that night, as we followed jason webley out into the street, singing along, that we'd made the right decision. because that decision led to a bunch of the decisions that led to that night, a near perfect night. and tonight, three years since we left chicago, a little over two years after that jason webley show, and just a couple of nights after seeing him again, i feel completely at home.
