Day 9 Grateful for the Indigo Girls
You have been role models for me these past 20 years: doing what you love, standing up for what you believe in, and making such beautiful music. When I got my guitar, yours (and Bob Dylan's) were the first songs I learned. When I need a musical old friend, I just go looking for you, and there you are, telling me how it is, and how it's gonna be all right. When I was far from home, in a land that looked like the surface of the moon, the Baluchistan desert--I belted your hymns out from atop a moving bus. We have some history, gals, and tonight, YOU ROCKED MY WORLD AGAIN! Didn't mean to shout, but I just couldn't help it. Watching and hearing you play with the Portland Symphony Orchestra just brought everything to a new level. Thank you for keepin me singing and daincing!
