Before we sink too deep into March, here is last year’s in proverbial twelve pictures for my Calendar 2017 in the making.
There was much staring in the distance, just as last night when I was watching the entire Oscars for some reason, only to find out the best reason to stick around till the end: Eddie Vedder was to perform last.
At first I read this wrong: as if Meryl is looking at Eddie on the stage this way. 🙂 Then I spotted him behind her.
He did a Tom Petty song no less, to accompany images of those who died last year.
Oh, if someone told me when I was 21 that this was what history held, such an event counting on him to stir emotions where before there were few, I’d kick them in the shins with my Doc Martens. Alas, as another tweet says:
And yet, if at least half of the people who watched yesterday are listening to Pearl Jam today, the world is suddenly a much better place. And I will be doing just that in June, in Rome, live.
But this was last March, Tom was still alive, as were Chris and some other people, beasties and plants were waking up and it was glorious to be alive as most usually is.
