2018 was the year I saw Poets of the Fall live for the very first time… and it was even more meaningful as I attended one of their anniversary shows in Helsinki, during April… as they celebrated 15 years… I celebrated 15 years since I first met my husband. Coinkidink? I think not. Life has a way of toying with one, but sometimes, it behaves 🙂
Before I get to see the band again though, I gotta wait 2 weeks… the anticipation is growing faster for everyday… the butterflies in my stomach, hmm, whirling relentlessly and my mind, when not occupied by work deadlines, is have troubles staying in the present – projecting to the – now – very near future 😀
My husband tells me that Poets of the Fall is my passion, and that he is happy that I pursue it and go to concerts, meet my friends from all over the world. All this is very energy giving… My brother tells me that I am nuts, and a teenager, because I go (or at least plan) to go to so many concerts. Dude, if you knew how many concerts my friends are going to, I’d look pretty normal to you right about now ?
Anyway, in two weeks, we’re (my husband J. and our friend – my adoptive brother – M.) are taking the train to Stockholm to attend the Swedish show at Nalen. My colleague, K. and my two friends from Finland (Kirsi & Kaisa-Mari) will be there too… and probably others I haven’t asked (or I forgot, sorry). Anyhow, it is not a concert but as my husband calls it a Nerdmoot…
Once Nalen is done, I fly to Paris on the next day while J & M are going home. I’ll meet my aunt, uncle and cousins for a few days, then I’ll be heading to Paris 10e to meet my friend P. from Germany (and also my colleague K… yes, the same one as in Stockholm)… this time, it will be VIP time 😛 I might (if I dare) check Marko’s French (as my friend O. told me he spoke the language)… only if I dare ?.
The next day, I’ll be flying to Provence to visit my parents, my brother and his family… before going back to reality for a few weeks.
April… that month again… 16 years (12 of marriage)… Helsinki and then Krakow and Warsaw. It could not be better, so much to look forward to 😀
Until then, please take care <3
